I have worked in this profession for over 10 years and it continues to truly excite me when I get to witness my clients begin to recognize their potential and take charge of their lives, possibly for the very first time. That’s why I have such passion for what I do.
I have experience working with adults and adolescents experiencing anxiety, depression, and other issues. I believe very strongly in working collaboratively with you and treating you as the expert on your life. I am especially passionate about working with people who identify as LGBTQ.

January 5: You head to the grocery store and it is as if no fruits, vegetables, or protein supplements were ever stocked on their shelves.

Due to new books and films like Boy Erased (written by Arkansas native Garrard Conley) and The Miseducation of Cameron Post, there has been a recent increase in the discussion around LGBTQ conversion therapy. Conversion therapy essentially tries to “de-gay” a person by changing their sexual orientation. In the past this has included “ex-gay” camps, electroconvulsive therapy, and administering shocks when aroused among other extreme measures. Today, most conversion therapy uses behavioral techniques much like cognitive behavioral therapy to attempt to change behavior or deny the expression of sexual feelings. In other words, it can look like regular therapy.
