"It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences.” –   Audre Lorde

I am a neurodiversity-affirming therapist who seeks to create a safe and comfortable environment for individuals of all backgrounds, neurotypes, and identities. As a neurodivergent person myself, I appreciate that we are all vastly different people with varying needs and challenges, and I strongly believe in catering therapy sessions to each person's individual needs. I seek to make therapy a place where you can discover more about yourself and your identity, heal through past trauma, and create an ideal future. 

 

Many neurodivergent people, especially those who have gone most of their lives undiagnosed, have experienced trauma associated with living in a world that is not designed for them. Historically, neurodivergent people have been made to feel ashamed of the way our brains work and been told to change the way we naturally are. But, this ideology is not just harmful to the person themselves, but to the whole of society. Therapy shouldn't be about changing who we are; it's about discovering, celebrating, and loving who we are. Offering a space to freely explore and validate those experiences is crucial in the healing process.

I utilize an integrated approach to best meet the needs of the individual client, and I specialize in neurodivergence such as autism and ADHD (including suspected autism/ADHD and high-masking individuals), LGBTQ+ populations, trauma, attachment/relationships, athletes/sports trauma and performance, and more.

 

Seeking therapy can be a daunting experience, especially for those who have had negative past experiences or have been made to feel as though they need to change who they naturally are. I would be honored to help make your therapy journey as safe, enjoyable, and you-led as possible. You're the captain of your ship; my role as a therapist is to help you navigate the seas.
