My experience includes psychotherapy/clinical social work in a diverse non-profit setting serving clients with depression, anxiety, HIV, chronic illness and pain, trauma, grief/loss, LGBTQ +, men's issues and relationship issues.
We all, at one time or another, have faced adversity, distress, anxiety, depression and during these times we can feel incredibly overwhelmed and alone. I am often reminded by my clients that it only takes one courageous step to bring about positive meaningful change. This is the time that we should reach out for help and start to look for answers to deal with these challenges. I encourage you to take that first step. I meet my clients where they are in the moment and help them in managing their thoughts, feelings and provide overall emotional support.

Although it is by no means the sole focus of my practice, I have a significant history working with people with HIV and with the LGBTQ + population.
Therapy is an interesting thing - many people have preconceived notions of what therapy is or should be. Therapy, to me, is simple. You have some issues in your life that are bothering you - maybe you feel down, maybe you can't get your relationships to work. Everything that you've tried hasn't been helpful or, ultimately, hasn't gotten you where you want to be. That's where I come in. I can help you pick up your issue, turn it to an angle that maybe you haven't seen yet, and brainstorm new ways to address it.

I am passionate about working with young adults, shame, addiction, mood disorders, trauma, personality disorders, and LGBTQ + issues.
Is trauma getting in your way from becoming who you want to be or doing what you want to do? Imagine moving toward unburdening yourself of the weight given to you through that trauma. If you have ever found yourself struggling with a lack of motivation, feeling stuck, issues within your relationships, internal messages of inadequacy, shame, addiction, or other issues leading to life feeling overwhelming, I can help. The world is always changing and life can be difficult to navigate while coping with anxiety, depression, trauma, stress, or unrealistic expectations (set by self or others).

I am a kink-positive, and LGBTQ -affirmative therapist.
As an AASECT certified sex and relationship therapist, I believe our sexuality, and our relationships with others are important contributors to our overall well-being. When we are out of sync with ourselves, or with the ones we love, we may experience anxiety, depression, fear, and shame. I provide a nurturing place where individuals and couples can learn to experience joy, curiosity, and acceptance of themselves, and with their significant others. I specialize in sexual challenges such as mismatched desire, low or absent desire, premature ejaculation, vaginismus, inability to achieve orgasm, and erotic injuries such as infidelity.
