**Now accepting new clients**
If you are on a journey of self-discovery and want someone to help you along that ride, then I’d love to meet you.
I’m especially interested in working with individuals who have had their experiences stigmatized and invalidated, particularly LGBTQIA+ individuals. I want to help you find healthier ways to live in a society that’s not always supportive of you, while also helping you gain the tools to build your self-confidence.
I’m also interested in helping individual develop better vocabulary for describing and experiencing their emotions, especially men. Oftentimes, men are not socialized to talk about their emotions and are actively discouraged from doing so. My work wants to provide a space where that expectation is defied.
I approach from a trauma-informed and substance-misuse-informed, DBT practice. I studied at UNC-Chapel Hill for my undergraduate degree, and I’m currently in my second year at Western Carolina University in the Clinical Psychology MA program in the Addictions Studies Certificate Program.
In my free time, I weightlift, and I dance Salsa and Bachata.
