Values & Philosophy

Our words possess immense value and power and yet at times, we may feel muted by societal, cultural, and relational pressures, trauma, and despair. My aim is to foster a space where your voice can resonate freely. Within our therapeutic alliance, my intention is to create a nurturing environment where exploration of identity and self is not only accepted, but celebrated. I honor the courage it takes to be vulnerable and cherish the humility that accompanies embracing the human experience. Together, we’ll navigate your challenges with an integrated approach that acknowledges the connections between our soul, body, and mind.

In my personal journey, I carry a profound connection to the LGBTQIA+ community. As someone who identifies as transfeminine and gay with a small-town Nebraska upbringing, my path to self-affirmation mirrors the struggles faced by many within the queer community. My background strongly influences my commitment to addressing oppressive systems while embracing an intersectional, anti-racist, and feminist framework to compassionately guide our work. Together, we prioritize cultivating realistic skills to navigate complex issues and cope with daily life, empowering you to thrive amidst life’s challenges.

I firmly believe that radical change is created through relationships and community, and I aspire for you to discover a meaningful sense of belonging in our work together. Even amidst life’s challenges, you retain the power to enact transformation where you have influence, including within our therapeutic relationship. In our work together, we will amplify your voice and foster growth, healing, and empowerment.
