Profile
“As a member of the community myself, I am deeply attuned to the experiences of queer and marginalized folks and the need for competent care.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Prior to becoming a therapist, I worked as a school and crisis counselor for LGBTQ+ youth. During this time, I received specific training in LGBTQ-affirming and trauma-informed therapies. As a member of the community myself, I am deeply attuned to the experiences of queer and marginalized folks and the need for competent care. This knowledge inspires my work with clients of all backgrounds and experiences.
What should someone know about working with you?
I view therapy as a process of forming connections: We learn how to connect with ourselves, including how we feel, what we need, and who we truly are. We connect with how our past has impacted us as well as our future goals and ambitions. And we connect with each other. My style is warm and curious; it works well for people who are open to deeply exploring themselves and their experiences.
How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
A core value that shapes my approach to therapy is gentleness. I believe our society often devalues gentleness, equating it with weakness. I aim to challenge harsher ways of thinking about ourselves and encourage clients to embrace attitudes of self-compassion and empathy, which lead to healing.
