LPC (SC), LCMHCA (NC), NCC
I am deeply passionate about helping people discover their joy and helping them live the lives they truly want. Acceptance and openness to all ways of being is a foundational part of my work- because I know firsthand what it's like to live for other's expectations. To this end, I have over a decade of advocacy and education work related to LGBT+ and alternative sexual expression and relationship style communities; including BDSM/Kink, Polyamory, Swing, Fetish, and beyond. Let me put my expertise to work helping you build the life you want to live!
My Philosophy of Change
Think of me as a facilitator for your growth. You are the only expert on your life, and I have the tools to help you get where you want to be. Counseling isn’t intended to be an authority telling you how to live your life, and I wouldn’t want to do that to you anyway. Our work will be collaborative and we will draw the map to your healing together.
The prospect of change can be terrifying, but you wouldn’t be here if something in you wasn’t saying “It’s time”. I trust that voice in you, even if you don’t yet. I will ask you to accept yourself exactly as you are- imperfections and pain included- and choose vulnerability and growth instead of the comfort of stagnation. We will work together to grow the parts of your internal experience that are serving you and let go of the ones that aren’t. I will never promise you that your world will always be perfect and comfortable- because the inevitability of change means perfection cannot exist. But you absolutely can build the life and relationships you want if you’re willing to risk the discomfort- and I want to help you get there.
