About Me

image


I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (cisgender white female, queer -pronouns she, her, hers) specializing in individual and family therapy and maintains a private practice in Juneau, Alaska.

With over 14 years experience as a therapist and as a graduate of University of Alaska Anchorage, 2011,  I specialize in working with individuals or families who may be exploring their gender identity or transitioning, experiencing depression, anxiety, grief and loss, trauma, PTSD, LGBTQ+ issues, ADHD, Autism spectrum, traumatic brain injuries and people who experience learning or cognitative disabilities. I feel that it is a privilege to be a part of your journey with you.

I am a solution-focused therapist, who is strength-based believing that you know yourself best with the strength and answers within you. My therapeutic approach is to provide support and a safe place to heal and grow while dealing with past or current trauma and personal life challenges. I use a variety of modalities and techniques. I hope that together we can help build on your strengths and attain the personal growth and peace you are committed to accomplishing.

Gender Affirming Letter Access Project

As part of my work as a psychotherapist, I work with folks who are unable to access healthcare because of systemic issues rooted in gatekeeping. One way that I work to leverage my own position is to offer pro-bono Hormone Therapy and Gender Affirmation Surgery letters to Indiana residents as a GALAP Pledge signer. If you can, learn more about GALAP and become a provider-let's break down these barriers!
