Welcome! As a therapist I am passionate about providing gender-affirming care to individual adults who are transgender , non-binary, gender-expansive, or gender-questioning. I also support individuals with experiences of queer sexualities and have specialized training in grief and loss. My priority is to create a supportive and safe space to help you discover the path toward living your authentic life in a safe way. Whether that means exploring gender or sexuality in an affirming space, finding the right resources, developing tools for coping with difficult experiences, or healing from past emotional wounds, I am here to help.

There are many reasons why you might be looking for a therapist: help with a long term struggle, support during a current life situation, and/or your personal growth. Whatever your reasons, I know how important it is to find a therapist you can develop a solid relationship with. In our work together we will come to understand more about what isn't working. You may be feeling stuck, sad, alone, consumed by rage, or unsatisfied. You and I will work together to build a trusting and non-judgmental relationship where you feel safe to talk about yourself openly.

I work with individuals in both brief and longer-term psychotherapy. I practice integrative therapy that is strongly grounded in psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral and solution-focused approaches. I strive to help clients increase awareness of thoughts and feelings, gain a better understanding of how their past contributes to their development, and gain skills in coping with stress and changing behaviors. I view psychotherapy as a collaborative process in which the client and therapist work together to develop goals and treatment plans.
