I have a warm, direct, and genuine style, and I primarily use CBT approaches. I believe that we all have the capacity for growth and change, regardless of what we have been through or how long we have struggled. I will strive to understand your life experiences and personal/family/cultural values, so we can work together to reach your goals in therapy.

Prioritize a good night's sleep
Spending time in nature, quiet time reading and relaxing, or having a heart-to-heart conversation with a close friend.
I deeply appreciate the work being done by the Trevor Project, as they provide support and resources for LGBTQ+ youth who may otherwise feel hopeless and/or out of options.
