I genuinely love helping all clients and seeing them grow in therapy, but I went into private practice in order to specifically serve the LGBTQ+ community. As both a therapist and an LGBTQ+ identified woman, I am passionate about increasing support for sexual and gender minorities, including individuals who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, nonbinary, genderqueer, gender fluid, queer, questioning, intersex, asexual, and/or pansexual.
In addition to providing individual, couples, and family therapy, I also spend time working toward educating those in my profession about LGBTQ+ issues. I have given presentations and lectures on LGBTQ+ issues in both agency and college/university settings and continually educate others (and myself) about LGBTQ+ issues, as I think it is important to advocate for my clients in the public sphere as much as I help them in personal counseling.
I am a proud member of GLMA: Health Professionals Advancing LGBT Equality, which is a global organization whose mission is to ensure equality in healthcare for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) individuals and healthcare providers.
I provide office based counseling to LGBTQ+ clients in St. Petersburg, Florida, as well as online counseling to clients anywhere in Florida.
