My approach to therapy is to help my clients work their way through the layers of injury, loss and protection that surround them, to reach the more open, undefended core inside. I believe it is the experiencing of that deepest part of ourselves which makes us feel alive and makes us feel connected to ourselves and others. I work to create a safe, compassionate environment in which healing can happen in moments and over time. I work with couples and individuals to help them recognize and alter the patterns that seem to get them stuck in their relationships.

Do you feel like you are not like yourself anymore? Are your relationships suffering now because you're lost? It can be confusing, frustrating, and painful. Often times, the power of having a safe space to share what happened, express your emotions, and notice the unhealthy beliefs has been overlooked. It can quickly become isolating and feeling misunderstood. It does not have to be. You can be yourself again and reach your full potential by reaching out for help.

Marriage is an intimate partnership that requires sharing yourself with someone else. A partnership between two people who have made a commitment to each other. This commitment has to be considered more important than any individual desire. The relationship has to come first. Couples therapy is a positive experience. It brings couples closer and makes life less stressful. Therapy adds a new dimension to your mutual communication. It may be hard to hear from your partner at first, but you may find that your mountainous challenges are really molehills.

My philosophy in working with youth and adults is to share cognitive and mindfulness techniques, in a supportive setting, to help my clients make positive changes in their thoughts and actions. Utilizing personal accountability, combined with humor and lightness, I aim to help clients cultivate compassion for themselves, so they may be willing to experiment with new tools. I strive to help clients come back into their bodies, more effectively process their feelings, and move decisively toward wellness. My theory is to be flexible and sensitive in my approach while moving clients toward a more confident, realized version of themselves.

Reaching out for help often takes time--there are so many reasons we give ourselves for putting it off! I recognize your courage for being here at this time. You are at the point in your life or in your relationship, in which taking action towards healing feels necessary. With warmth, creativity and insight, I help people who are yearning to live an authentic life - a life that is real, instead of perfect. One in which you learn to listen to your inner wisdom, to express your thoughts and feelings, and to face challenges with courage and integrity.

As LGBTQ people we often find ourselves wondering "where do I belong in this world?" and "why can't I just be myself?" It seems like we've tried everything but we don't feel like we belong or we are in a safe place to live & work. We often wonder... when is this going to get better? When can I just live my life fully how I am? Sometimes we feel sad and it can be a very lonely place. We can even forget just how special and unique we are because we are so different and surrounded by those who just don't get it. We really want someone who can connect to us and make our experiences feel validated, reminding us that we are beautiful.

The last 15 years I have worked extensively with individuals struggling with many forms of trauma and substance use disorders - as well as the resulting relational, emotional and physical disconnections.
We all need a safe place to unpack stress and explore unhealthy patterns in order to create the meaningful changes we want in our lives. I encourage clients to approach therapy with an open and curious mind. For my part, you can expect compassion, collaboration and an unwavering authenticity in each session - with a healthy dose of humor when welcomed.

My clients typically fall into three categories: 1) individuals with existential angst, questioning their trajectory in relationships, careers, and/or life; 2) individuals suffering from a myriad of compulsive behaviors/addictions; and 3) couples experiencing communication difficulties, misaligned values, discordant desires, or desiring archetypal reconstructions. My work emphasizes identifying & isolating troubling emotions that lead to negative thinking and behaving, and learning to think & act according to reason. I am offering in-person sessions and teletherapy.
