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.
