As an Associate MFT, I value developing strong relationships and connections with clients who require a safe place to explore a variety of goals and ways to manage and overcome often painful challenges.


In addition to removing road blocks, I also work with specific challenges that are present for LGBTQIA folks and people with disabilities.


For LGBTQIA clients, our work includes dealing with the effects of homo-, bi- and transphobia, exploring the gender spectrum, and transitioning genders.


For people with disabilities, we work together to manage challenges including ableism, accommodations, chronic pain, and illness.
