In addition to my clinical work I am an active volunteer with The Trevor Project, The Human Rights Campaign, and also belong to the Florida Association of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender issues in Counseling (FALGBTIC).
I use a variety of treatment styles, theories and interventions in my work, but underneath it all my main focus is providing a safe, empathic environment for you to truly explore yourself and every facet of your experience. This includes exploring sources of pain and hurt, as well as celebrating sources of hope and joy. I believe that one of the most powerful things we can do is truly learn to understand ourselves, accept ourselves, practice compassion for ourselves, and move forward in life allowing ourselves to be as authentic as possible.

Sometimes our inner critic can be relentless by telling us we aren’t good enough, strong enough, smart enough, skinny enough, outgoing enough, attractive enough, or likeable enough to do something. That voice can become so common that we don’t even question the validity of it anymore. It eventually becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy because at some point we begin viewing the world through that lens of never being able to measure up. We then begin to seek out information that agrees with our inner critic. We can also misread others’ comments, gestures or facial expressions so that it aligns with our own doubts about ourselves.
