Attachment, Trauma, Mind & Body
M.A., Ed.M., MHC-LP

As a mental health counselor, I emphasize authentic connection, compassion, and empathy. I attend to the ways relationships shape and affect us, experiences of power and oppression, and focus on empowering clients to heal in ways that are consistent with their values. I have experience working with adolescents and adults in a college counseling center, and as a crisis counselor at The Trevor Project, on various concerns including, but not limited to: depression, anxiety, gender, sexuality, trauma, identity exploration, and relationship/family conflict. I have a special interest in working with LGBTQ+ folks of color, trauma, kink/poly/sex-positive, and Latinx identity. In-network with Cigna and Empire BlueShield BlueCross.
