Work History

Therapy can be a weekly reminder to slow down and listen. If we’re in a great deal of pain, it can be a place to tend to our wounds. If we’re in a place of confusion, it can be a place to remember who we are and who we are not — or discover ourselves for what feels like the first time. Therapy, over time, can teach us how to live and how to live well. Through my work for Pacific Pride Foundation, I am trained to provide LGBTQ+ affirming services. My approach is client-centered meaning I believe that you are the ultimate expert of your life. I’m here to help you through providing empathy, perspective, and a non-judgmental space. I also specialize in recovery from religious trauma. If you want to inquire more, I'm happy to provide a 15 minute phone consultation! I look forward to connecting with you!
