I strive to create a world where we can all feel safe to express our authentic selves. I have worked as an advocate and counselor for 23 years. I am passionate about providing accessible & culturally relevant care. I am a queer/lesbian provider. I embrace fluid self-expression. I work from a framework that is strengths based and sometimes called person centered or Humanistic. I enjoy supporting folks in moving through anxiety, trauma recovery and positive identity reinforcement. I offer both art therapy & talk therapy modalities. My focus and approach are catered to each client’s unique needs. I provide structured support that can involve Mindfulness based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and practicing coping skills. I also offer more depth oriented work that explores values & meaning. Some of the common challenges that I support folks around are: panic attacks, insomnia, dissociative episodes, obsessive thoughts, substance abuse, psychosis, depersonalization & self-harm coping mechanisms. I am passionate about accessible care and am a participating provider with Applehealth/ Obamacare.
