Life can be really tough! Whether you’re facing a new challenge, dealing with past hurt, or uncertain about the source of your distress, having a non-judgmental space to share your concerns can bring clarity and relief. I’m a firm believer that you are the expert in your own life. Drawing from experience with a variety of modalities, I offer an opportunity to be heard and gain insight with the aim of making positive and lasting change.

Talking about sexuality or gender identity can lead to anxiety, frustration, even shame. Things may be “getting better,” but it’s often a long, winding path. As a harm reductionist, I also offer support around alcohol and drug use. Considering change, or working toward non-use? You’ve come to the right place.

People seek therapy for a host of reasons, but at the root we are looking to heal and gain skills to better manage the challenges life sends our way. There’s no need to go through it alone – let’s work together and see what can happen.
