As an LGBTQ+ affirming therapist, I want you to know that if you are here, you are strong. I am passionate about supporting LGBTQ+ identifying people who want to feel better and live authentically. I offer individual psychotherapy and support groups. If you are struggling with feelings of shame, anxiety, depression, and experiencing lack of family acceptance, discrimination, or bullying due to your sexual, transgender, non-binary, or gender non-conforming identity - you are absolutely not alone. Let's work together to increase your self-acceptance, improve your relationships, and build self-worth.
My focus is on providing a caring, safe, comfortable space where you will feel heard, understood, and able to speak freely. We will explore ways to handle feelings, experiences, and relationships, while staying true to yourself. We will cultivate skills and practices to help you get "un-stuck" and feel that you are moving forward again.
My therapeutic style is warm, direct, and highly empathic. If you have had negative experiences in the past with therapy but still find yourself looking for someone to help, we may be a good fit. I am a sex-positive clinician and aware and affirming of sexual diversity, including poly/kink/altsex communities, sexuality professionals, and other identities.
