Congratulations are in order; you've taken a huge first step. Whether you are brand new to therapy or

looking for a different kind of treatment, choosing the therapist that's right for you takes careful

consideration. You've arrived and are already beginning your journey toward transformation.

My stance as a queer, non-binary feminist support my multiculturally sensitive and strengths-based

approach. I welcome clients of all identities and intersections, including BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, and

persons with disabilities. I provide a safe stigma and judgment-free space for you to explore the

multifaceted dimensions of who you are, what you feel, and how your thoughts impact your well-

being. 

 

I’ve received specialized training in trauma-informed counseling. I have a strong background of

working with clients on issues related to trauma and PTSD, LGBTQIA+ concerns, navigating non-

traditional relationships, grief and loss, anxiety, and depression. My collaborative and creative

approach peppered with a sense of humor and keen attention to detail creates a warm and secure

environment for you to let yourself be authentic and vulnerable with a felt sense of security.

 

I hold a master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Northeastern Illinois University.I

use evidence-based treatment methods with a trauma-informed lens, including but not limited to

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and

attachment theory.  

 

In my free time, I like to paint, attend drag shows, visit live music venues, and romp & roll at

Montrose Dog Beach with my little dude, Frankie. A few of my loves include Van Gogh, flower-

scented candles, Michaels stores, and poetry:

 

 

"There is freedom waiting for you,

on the breezes of the sky,

and you ask, 'What if I fall?'

Oh but my darling,

What if you fly?"

-Erin Hanson
