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.
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.
