Personal

I am a doctoral-level licensed clinical psychologist who has been practicing psychotherapy in a variety of settings since 2008. I provide LGBTIQA-affirmative therapy. My initial focus in therapy is building a collaborative, empowering, accepting relationship that facilitates my client's self-compassion and openness to change. It is a true privilege for me to be part of my clients’ healing journeys and to walk beside them during very vulnerable times. I strive to help my clients explore the mind/body/spirit connection and develop curious, non-judgmental, and compassionate attitudes toward their own bodies, histories, life experiences, thoughts, feelings, values, and behaviors while simultaneously developing and practicing concrete skills and behavioral changes. Through a careful balance of support and challenge, I help my clients mindfully navigate the complex process of healing and create meaningful life changes.
