I hope this space can help you begin to answer whether we might work well together. Being warm, caring, empathetic, and helpful is a core part of being a therapist, so I won’t emphasize those qualities here. In terms of my more unique clinical facets, I endeavor to be nonjudgmental even when not neutral. I’m high energy, whimsical, and mirthful in the counseling room. I am also skilled at verbally describing internal decision-making and emotional processes and have excellent pattern recognition and analytical skills.
Each individual comes to therapy with their own goals in mind and I’m here to work on whatever you feel would most benefit you. I especially enjoy supporting clients in discovering and supporting boundaries, building relationships and relationship agreements, and managing depression and suicidality.
I won’t judge you for consensual expressions of your identity and sexuality. I encourage LGBTQIA2-S people, people in consensual nonmonogamous relationships, BDSM/kink practitioners and community members, sex workers, and people living with chronic, severe depression and suicidality to reach out to me. I work with adults and partners. Please check my website for information about my availability for new self pay and insurance clients.
