Welcome! I work with children, adolescents, and adults. When working with clients, I am sensitive to how oppression impacts mental health and hinders our ability to find our place in the world. Some issues we can explore together include: LGBTQ issues, traumatic experiences, coming out, family of origin, depression, anxiety, and building shame resilience. I provide affirmative counseling for trans* and gender queer clients. I believe that therapy should be a choice and I do not view gender dysphoria as a mental health issue. I help explore how rigid gender roles negatively impact us all.

As a young adult, you may find yourself often stressed, experiencing anxiety, and having panic attacks. Symptoms of tightness in your chest, shallow breathing, body tension, worry, and avoidance feel like a constant struggle. All this anxiety is constantly taking you away from enjoying activities you once loved and being the whole person you have been striving to become. You don't need to be in constant fear, or struggling alone anymore. I'm here to help and accompany you into your healing journey.

*Currently not accepting any new clients* Strong and supportive relationships are the cornerstone of a healthy life. We need connection with others in our lives. When things are going well with our partners, we feel seen and wanted by our partners. When the relationship feels off balance, feelings of frustration, helplessness, and isolation can overtake the relationship. If you are struggling in your relationship, know that you are not alone. Together we can work to try to make sense of the feelings you are experiencing and figure out what you want for yourself and your relationship. Let's restore & heal together.

I'm writing this note to say hello and to let you know a little about myself and my counseling practice. I have a Ph.D. from the University of Notre Dame and have been working with children and families for 25+ years as a mental health counselor. About 10 years ago, I began full time practice as a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and have enjoyed working with kids and families very much. My role is changing, and I am focusing more on work with adults. For families, I offer parent training and still have some contact with children, but the focus is now more on parents and communication in the family.

Finding the right therapist can be a daunting process, yet it is one that really matters. It is understandable to feel out of sorts, isolated, or misunderstood when experiencing relationship, family, peer, or workplace stress, during a life transition, or when recovering from trauma. It may be due to a death, the end of a relationship, a relocation from another state or country, an adjustment to a health issue of yourself or a loved one, or being in an environment in which you feel you don't fit. It can be painful to experience these feelings and to try to find a way forward. You don't have to do this alone.

We will not try to make you do what somebody else wants you to do. We start with your goals & find ways to help you develop the necessary skills. We have found that, if a person's individual wishes are not represented in the solution, it will not work in the long run. So there is a strong emphasis on helping each person take responsibility and control over their own happiness. Some things are better handled individually, and some things are better handled with both people in the room. Our unique blend of individual & couples therapy is quite effective.
