My practice: I believe in working to understand people through listening, curiosity, empathy, and non-judgment. Gender, sex, and sexuality are all based on the individual bringing a uniqueness to what they might mean or how they show up. There may be a disconnect from who you want to or believe yourself to be and who you are right now. I am particularly interested in helping to close this gap, and gain a stronger understanding of the pieces in one’s life that influence and get in the way of discovering your authentic self. All your emotions serve a purpose and are trying to communicate something to you. I aim to help people learn, feel, and communicate these emotions to experience a more fulfilling life, improve relationships, manage psychological symptoms, and learn to cope with the pains that accompany growth. Your experiences and emotions are all understandable and valid, even if it isn’t immediately apparent why that is. Let me help provide the care, attention, and space that you and your feelings deserve.
