For people in marginalized populations, the stresses of everyday life are magnified. It can be hard to find mental health providers who understand our lives and needs. As a Queer counselor, I seek to meet you where you are, to understand all parts of you. You are not alone.

My mission is to create a warm and accepting therapeutic space where people of all gender identities and sexual orientations have the freedom and safety to express all facets of their authentic selves and explore the challenges of existence. I believe that all people have common experiences to share, cultural differences to celebrate, and unique experiences that can be understood through these similarities and differences. I work with individuals, couples of all sexes/genders and orientations including mixed orientation (bi/straight or gay/bi), and people in other relationship structures (polyamory). 

Prism Mental Health LLC focuses on providing services to members of the LGBTQ+ community and those who love us.  This includes allied communities such as Kink and Furry.  I practice existential/humanist psychotherapy, which tailors therapy to individuals and uses a variety of techniques to help people heal themselves through the therapeutic relationship.  I have experience with helping transgender people through the transition process including referrals for hormones and surgery.  I also have experience working with adults on the Autism spectrum.
