My Approach & Philosophy


I am a master’s student in my final year of the clinical social work program at East Tennessee State University and a pre-licensed student intern, here to hold space and grow with you. I will be offering support under the supervision of a licensed clinical social worker with Resilient Mind Counseling.

I am here to engage in a collaborative experience with teens and adults, utilizing an eclectic approach to provide you support and deep care. My approach is intersectional, sex-positive, and trauma informed. I am especially enthusiastic to work with individuals who are of a queer or trasngender experience.

I have worked in the realm of mental health in various capacities over the last fourteen years, showing up for diverse populations in many settings, including: crisis services, case management, transitional living, school-based support, harm reduction, and peer support. My current position is as a Lifeline Supervisor with The Trevor Project, a national suicide prevention and crisis intervention organization for LGBTQ+ young people.

Areas of Support:

  • Gender identity
  • identify formation
  • life transitions
  • relationships (open/polyamorous)
  • support for helpers/healers/organizers/caregivers
  • co-parenting and family dynamics
  • neurodivergence
  • harm reduction


I provide mental health support to adults, and specialize in:

  • Working with the LGBTQ+ population
  • Poly/CNM+
  • Low Self Worth and Self Esteem
  • Relationship challenges
  • Religious Trauma
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Queerness
  • Grief Related to Late-Stage Capitalism

You Deserve to Feel Great.
