Lived Experience & Flexibility

I am a queer disabled cis woman with ongoing lived experience of what it is like to move in this world -- with all the challenges, opportunities, losses, and joys we face as queer and trans disabled people. With over a decade of providing mental health services, I look forward to working within my own community and helping individuals like myself find meaning, purpose, confidence, and healing.

Knowing that disabilities and other health concerns can be unpredictable, I offer an extremely flexible scheduling system and allow for cancellations under 24 hours as long as we are able to re-schedule within that same week. All of my sessions will be done via telehealth in order to improve access for both myself and my clients.

I also aim to make my services as affordable as possible, knowing all too well the barriers we as LGBTQ+ disabled people can face when it comes to income instability and restrictions. Therefore I offer my sessions at $75 per session, with an initial 15 minute consultation for free.

I also have available an online client portal that allows clients to easily sign documents, review handouts, and make payments in one place. Current clients can even cancel and reschedule appointments online by accessing my availability. There is also a secure messaging system that allow clients to message me directly via a HIPPA compliant platform.
