I have had experience working with youth, young adults and families. I specialize in working with needs around: LGBTQ+ and non binary support, grief and loss counseling, psychoeducation along with practical guidance in how to deal with anxiety, depression and trauma utilizing CBT/ DBT & somatic approaches.
Holding space to build a foundation in which solid therapeutic alliance can thrive is my top priority in my work, and I like to take a cooperative approach in the counselor-client relationship. I will honor your truths and your life experiences.
Personally speaking, I am Bi/Non-Binary-Fluid individual, and a single mother. I am a 20+ year meditator and hold a deep appreciation of the contemplative arts. Advocacy, Empowerment and Collaboration are at the heart of my professional values.
