About

Stress, depression, anxiety, traumas, family issues, identity concerns - so many of us of all ages face these and many other challenges. Are you hoping to reduce your distress and increase your engagement in life and experience of joy? Would you like more satisfying, healthy relationships? Looking for support through your gender journey and access to needed affirming medical services? Your experiences are valid and you matter. Positive change is possible.
I strive to assist my clients through a collaborative approach to psychotherapy. I utilize cognitive behavioral therapy, family systems, trauma-informed, and gender affirming interventions, with specialized training in CBT, transgender health, and trauma. I also provide evaluations and letters for gender affirming medical care and procedures (sliding scale).
I truly enjoy collaborating with clients on their journeys of discovery and positive change. I invite you to talk with me to see if working together would be a good fit for you and your therapy goals. My in-person office is in Portsmouth NH, but I am also licensed in ME and CA for telehealth.
