Trauma-informed, LGBTQ+ affirmative counselor supporting adults 18+ through anxiety, transitions, grief, stress, and more.

Stress just. won't. stop. and “work-life balance” seems like an impossible feat. Your stress has been building for FAR too long; you can't remember the last time you weren’t so overwhelmed or anxious. You can't stand how irritable you’ve become, especially around those you love. Your go-to de-stressors just aren't cutting it anymore – or it's a struggle to use them, and you’re growing tired of your own procrastination, rumination, and withdrawing from others. You want to be more present in your life & relationships. You want to feel like your old self again – or a new, calmer self – on a path of continued growth and success.

You want more for yourself and are ready for change. I can help by co-creating a brave and safe space and validating you – especially when it feels like no one understands. We'll rebuild coping skills for relief now and prevention later. I'll challenge you (with care), offer accountability, laugh with you:), and use your strengths to help you meet your goals.

You're struggling now and contacting therapists only to then wait for responses is frustrating. I do free, confidential phone consults to make sure that I can be of help to you before you commit to a counseling session. Skip the waiting and take another step toward relief now by scheduling a consult directly on my website.
