About

I believe that everyone is in the process of change. We have worked to become who we are now and we will continue to grow into ourselves. That is why I do not judge people, but instead help clients to accept and appreciate their struggles as a foundation for healing. Very little shocks or surprises me so I am particularly well-suited to issues of sexuality and personal expression; and associated issues of shame and fear. I have a sub-specialty in transgender teens and adults. I have an affinity for those with anxiety disorders, depression, trauma, and grief. My primary method is Cognitive-Behavioral talk therapy.
Together we create change though understanding feelings and motivations, developing goals and appropriate actions. We may examine family trees to uncover learned behaviors and dynamics, use creative expression and/or spiritual themes. We will increase your strengths and focus on your life's positives as a philosophy for productive living.
As a licensed social worker I have provided therapy to children and families, mentally ill adults, people with AIDS and other medical conditions. In 1997 I graduated from the Howard University School of Divinity. I served the Unitarian Universalist congregation in Provincetown from 1999-2010, before starting private therapy practice.
