Therapeutic Approach

As a clinician and member of the community, I recognize the importance of providing affirmative care for LGBTQIA+ folx. To better understand and support our community, I have worked hard to develop the necessary skills. My education and ongoing professional development have focused on understanding the process of gender identity development and building resilience in LGBTQIA+ youth. We currently have secure, safe, and professional online or in-person sessions available, ensuring that our clients receive the best possible care.

Therapist and Patient
Use of Diagnosis

Mental health diagnosis can help provide a common understanding of a condition, help identify treatment options, and provide access to health insurance coverage. However, a mental health diagnosis can sometimes carry a stigma, affecting employment, housing, and relationships. Before making any diagnosis, I will partner with you to consider the benefits and possible consequences.
