I am a clinical social worker specializing in mental health therapy for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer individuals. My experience as an out Queer provider enables me to offer individualized and effective outpatient mental health care to LGBTQ+ people.
My focus is to help LGBTQ+ individuals heal, energize, and become aware of their inner strengths through counseling. I achieve this by providing a neutral safe space, listening to your concerns, and customizing a treatment plan. My specialties include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and techniques from Somatic Experiencing. I use the Minority Stress Model as a framework for understanding how discrimination, prejudice, gender norms, and racism results in higher occurrences of psychological problems. I work with multiple sexual and gender identities including kink/BDSM, polyamorous relationships, consensual nonmonogamy, pansexual, gender nonbinary, gender nonconforming, and many other identities.
I have been trained to provide gender affirmative mental health assessments to help people who are transgender, gender non-conforming, nonbinary, or agender prepare and receive a letter for surgery.
I promise to be there for you every step of your journey. My goal is to help you grow from your struggles, heal from your pain, and move forward to where you want to be in your life.
