My philosophy toward helping people is one of collaboration, cooperation, and respect for your innate ability to heal and be whole. I create a warm, supportive, and challenging therapeutic environment to help you explore your feelings and recognize that which is getting in the way of living an authentic and fulfilling life. You will find a safe space to help you process and heal. Together, we will work to address that which may be limiting you and to uncover your healthiest, fullest self. I have a strong background in multicultural counseling, gender issues, and counseling sexual minorities. I have a special interest in counseling individuals who are part of the Trans and gender variant community. I bring a skillful, warm, and open approach to the therapeutic relationship. I feel the most important part of therapy to be the connection between counselor and client. I am honored and privileged to be able to support and guide clients on their journey toward self discovery and healing. I love this work.
