ABOUT ME

I have a Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Walden University with specialized course work in Forensics and Addictions.  I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor (CADCI), a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC) and a Certified Forensics Counselor (CFC).  I am a WPATH member (World Professional Association for Transgender Health) and currently working towards certification and becoming a Certified Integrative Medicine Provider (CIMP).  

 

I feel we are all unique as individuals and follow a blend of multiple theoretical approaches including CBT, DBT, MI, Narrative Therapy, and Affirmative Counseling.  I have been practicing since 2016 but have been in the health care field since 2007. 

I aspire to provide a “safe zone” for the individuals I see that breeds an environment of free self-expression while assisting them in their journey to living a productive and fulfilling life.  I believe in a whole health systemic approach to healing and wellness; mind, body, and spirit.

I am trained in WPATH Standards of Care and am also a vetted professional through Brave Space, LLC. I can offer behavioral health assessments and letter writing for hormone therapy and surgeries. I identify as Non-Binary (NB) and Gender Non-Conforming (GNC) and prefer the pronouns they/them.  I would like to help you in your journey through support, guidance, and education.
