Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
Send your prospective therapist a brief message about why you’re seeking support, your preference for in-person or telehealth services, and how you’d like to be contacted moving forward. Note: Answers to many common questions can be found on the therapist’s profile page. If this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest hospital.
I know how intimidating therapy can be, and I want to help you feel less afraid to enter this space.
Before becoming a therapist, I received my BA in Education and English Literature. I then went on to obtain a dual masters degree (MAMS) in Student Affairs and Mental Health Counseling. I have spent over 10 years working in a large, urban school district where I have encountered people from all walks of life. During my time as an educator, I also worked with the district’s Queer Equity Committee, collaborating with others to make life at school safe and welcoming for queer students, educators, and staff. This work is what helped me to realize that I wanted a career in counseling.
In addition to my education and professional experience, I have a full lived experience. I am queer, a mom, divorced, and a person who struggles with her mental health from time to time. I came out as queer after having been in a heterosexual relationship for most of my adult life. I know what it is like to go through a major life transition, and understand the fear the comes with taking those steps towards being your authentic self. I will bring that experience with me into the therapy room.
As a counselor, I draw from Feminist, Narrative, Relational Cultural, ACT, and person-centered modalities. That said, I believe that each person is an individual, and understand that what works for one person does not necessarily work for everyone. YOU are the expert in your life, and because of that, I want to know who you are. We will work together to see what matters to you and what paths we can take to achieve your goals.
