Who Am I

As a trans individual and member of the LGBTQ+ community, my ideal client is anyone who is looking for a non-judgemental, safe space to be themselves. I believe we thrive when we experience belonging & acceptance. I came to this profession with the mission to connect the gap between LGBTQ+ persons who are interested in counseling and mental health professionals who can affirm their identity. Through a collaborative approach, I work alongside clients to explore their intentions and goals for therapy. A vital part of my practice is utilizing a trauma-informed, person-centered approach, in order to partner with clients in developing an improved understanding of self.

I am a Pennsylvania Licensed Social Worker, currently working towards licensure as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I received my Masters of Social Work from West Chester University, specializing in integrated care for
medically vulnerable populations. I have worked in a variety of settings, including children and youth crisis intervention, mental health counseling, and LGBTQ+ specific behavioral health services.

I encourage you to reach out should you feel we could make a good team. I look forward to the opportunity to support you in your journey to an empowered purpose.
