My passion is working with those that experience gender dysphoria and are exploring their gender identity, as well as other LQBTQIA+ folx and families. I also do a lot of work with anxiety, depression, and ADHD, and I welcome working with youth that also struggle with OCD, trauma and ASD to help them on their journey.
I meet kids where they are, to empower them so they know how best to take care of themselves, while coaching them and their family on how to work together as a team and set everyone up for success.
I love my cats and dog, and like to run and hike. I'm a foodie who likes trying out new vegetarian recipes, and indulging in outdoor and portrait photography. When I read, it's almost always non-fiction, and my console of choice is the Nintendo Switch.
I like to be involved with my child's school events (PTO, helping in the library), and in the neighborhood and community in which I live to help support and foster a sense of belonging and community. Most recently, before moving, I was a Clinical Supervisor for the St. Louis Queer Support Helpline for a number of years.
Public Speaking Yes
I've spoken in the school communities, to students and faculty, regarding mindfulness and gender identity. I've also spoken on panels and done presentations in the corporate arena and local conferences pertaining to gender identity and supporting families as a unit during transition.
