Do you find yourself repeating the same self-destructive behavior over and over? Do you find it difficult to find compassion for yourself or others? Do you find that instead of comforting yourself, you judge yourself for the way that you're feeling? Therapy can help you understand the unconscious dynamics at play and pull you out of your repetitive patterns. Finding a therapist who feels like the "right fit" is one of the most important aspects of a successful therapy. I provide a safe, confidential, non-judgmental space that welcomes all aspects of you and your experience.

Successful psychotherapy is a partnership based on trust. People do change, becoming more truly themselves when they find the right, trained therapist and are able to talk freely. I listen to you with respect and you develop greater self awareness. This enables you to communicate more clearly, to reflect on difficult issues, and to let go of outmoded behaviors that do not further your deeper needs.

I have been working with LGBTQ+ communities and their families in mental health settings for the last 8 years. I'm passionate about providing a space for all people to be celebrated for their full authentic selves. I honor and respect the strategies clients have learned that support them in coping and surviving. Together, we can work towards becoming more aware and understanding of how these coping strategies and patterns best serve us, recognize what may no longer serve us, and find new ways of coping. I support clients with any needs or goals that they bring to therapy.

Just listening and asking you "How does that make you feel" is not my approach. We will get work done and you'll get tools to use in your day-to-day life. I'm authentic in sessions, which helps clients relax and creates a collaborative partnership rather than a hierarchy. Working with people from different backgrounds, cultures, gender identities, and sexualities, I acknowledge the need for different approaches and work with you to find the most engaging methods. I am very active in sessions and keep a relaxed atmosphere as we collaborate.

In addition to adult individuals and couples, I work quite well with difficult adolescents and pre-teens, and can tolerate a high degree of intensity in therapy sessions. I am uniquely capable of providing a containing and non-judgmental space, and am particularly interested in working with issues that arise as a result of counter-culture lifestyles. I bring a social justice perspective to my work, meaning that I take the entirety of my clients' environment as equally important and formative as their early childhood relationships and mental processes.

I enjoy working with people who have been successful in their fields and yet have come to an impasse in how they think of themselves in terms of self esteem and self respect. The people I work with often question the significance of their lives and how loved they are by friends and family. These doubts often have their origin in their birth families and can be helped by an in-depth understanding of their role in their families.

I also work extensively in the treatment of alcoholism and other addictions, often treating family members of the addicted/alcoholic individual. In recent years I have been involved in the treatment of firefighters, police, and other First Responders.

My practice is rooted in the belief that there is power in knowing and telling your own story. Who are you? Where did you come from? What's important to you? Let's work together to untangle your story, identify your strengths, goals, passions, and barriers; and make you the author of what comes next. I work with people who want to make positive changes, but feel paralyzed by stress, fear, indecision, or old habits. I can also help you learn concrete strategies for managing uncomfortable thoughts, emotions, transitions, health conditions or problematic relationships.
