Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
My focus is LGBTQI2-S Affirmative Therapy because I believe everyone deserves to be supported, understood, and celebrated during their therapy experience. Whether working individually with children or adults, with a couple or a family, I focus on establishing a safe environment. I believe that we can build a trusting relationship in order to help you understand the dynamics that are creating issues in your life and guide you to learn new ways to live with more fulfillment and joy. As your therapist, I will provide you with a safe & welcoming place where you can develop self-awareness and love your authentic self. I will provide a compassionate hand that will support & empower you through your life journey. I will guide you in developing deeper connections in relationships, greater confidence in decision making and increases your capacity for managing life's challenges. ?I specialize in providing LGBTQI2-S Affirmative Treatment to those who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning or Queer, Intersex, Two-Spirited, Gender Non-Binary or Gender Non-Conforming. I understand that overcoming personal, relationship and family issues can feel like an overwhelming challenge for those struggling with identity issues, but you don't have to do this alone.
