If you are experiencing depression, anxiety, trauma, or loss, you do not need to go through it alone. You deserve guidance, support, and comfort. I often work with people who are experiencing difficult emotions, sometimes connected to past events. I also help individuals who are struggling in their relationships or have experienced some kind of loss. Regardless of your circumstance, we will work together to find you a sense of relief.

In addition to supporting people of all backgrounds, I also enjoy working with the LGBTQ+ community. You might be trying to understand your sexual orientation or gender identity, or simply want a therapist who gets it. I am also comfortable addressing concerns about religious beliefs and their connection to sexuality or gender identity.

I offer weekend hours in a comfortable setting. You can easily reach me by phone or email to share more about your needs. I look forward to talking with you soon!
