I help people break out of depressive cycles and leave anxiety behind. We will discuss your goals for seeking a therapist and work to take the small and big steps to get you there. Many of my clients say they appreciate my warmth, non judgmental approach and incisive questions to get you thinking. Our work will focus on having a healthy relationship with self and others. 20+ years as a licensed therapist and EMDR practitioner. I am a skilled, affirming Gender Therapist who is welcoming toward LGBTIQA & BIPOC folks. Spanish Speaking
As a Gender Specialist I have expertise in working with kids, teens & adults who identify as questioning, transgender, non binary, intersex or re-transitioning. I consult with therapists through video groups and individual consultation on gender-focused clinical work. WPATH Certified Member/WPATH Mentor. See website for 5 monthly consult groups options.
Trauma can transform your life including whether you feel safe in the world. PTSD can result from single incidents like an accident, injury, assault, or death. Usually I can help you feel better in 3-8 EMDR or Flash visits. Long trauma history? EMDR can be a great tool during long term therapy.
