I strive to create a space rooted in self-compassion and curiosity where you can bring all your complexities and intersecting identities, and feel safe as we work together toward growth and healing. As a queer non-binary person, I’m passionate about working with LGBTQIA and gender-expansive folx. I also enjoy working with young adult life transitions, work/academic stress, the kink community, and supporting clients in open/poly relationships. I know from experience the liberation that comes from a safe, empowering, and affirming therapy space. You are the expert in your life; I provide you with the space and the tools to facilitate change and healing while also holding space for where you are right now with whatever you carry. Your lived experience is always centered in therapy sessions with me. 

 

I use an integrative approach to therapy using tenets of embodiment/somatics, self-compassion, Internal Family Systems, Expressive Arts Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment therapy. These tools help you learn to feel/express your way through experiences, name your emotions, and connect with whatever is lingering in your body. My work is also guided by Queer theory and Sensate Focus Therapy. 

 

 I received my Bachelor’s degree in Experimental Psychology with minors in Counseling and Gender Studies from the University of South Carolina. I am in my third and final year of the Master’s program in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Roosevelt University where I have focused my academic training on working with the LGBTQIA community. I have received additional education as a Registered 200-hour Yoga Teacher, Gottman Method Couples Therapy: Level 1 Clinical Training, and 60 hours of Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence training through the Illinois Coalition Against Sexual Assault. 

 

In my free time, I like to spend time by the lake, crochet, read non-fiction, thrift, watch horror movies, listen to music, and bake! I love being creative and exploring new experiences.
