About Me:

  • My clients describe me as:

    Calm, genuine and real.

  • Something to know about my approach is:

    I work to nurture the strengths you already possess but may be unaware of, and I support and encourage personal growth whatever that may look like for you. I provide the space needed to challenge negative thoughts for better self-awareness.

  • Together, we will:

    work to empower you. We will foster the tools and resources that you need in order to look in the mirror and see your truest, most authentic reflection.

  • I specialize in working with people who:

    Identify as queer and have struggled with living their authentic lives. Whether that be because of the restraints of a conservative upbringing, or an inner battle with the self. I help facilitate self-discovery, self-love and authentic living.

  • I became a therapist because:

    I wish to provide relief, comfort, safety and a helping hand to those who feel unsafe and unloved. To those who feel unheard and lost.

  • Something that stands out about where I offer therapy is:

    Astute Counseling & Wellness Services is an all-in-one space that provides mental health & massage therapy, acupuncture, and other wellness resources.

  • More about me and my practice:

    I practice at Astute Counseling & Wellness Services. I offer individual sessions for clients aged 18 and beyond and specialize in LGBTQIA+ concerns, depression; and other mood disorders, life-stage issues, anxiety, and identity concerns.
