It takes courage to start therapy. The very fact that you’re considering it probably means you’re getting ready to make some significant changes in your life. My approach to therapy focuses on understanding and accepting you as you are right now, and creating a safe space where you can figure out where you want to go from here. We’ll work together as you get ready to make the sometimes tough (and rewarding) changes that will give you a better life. As a therapist, I am guided by intuition as well as research, as reflected in my books "Eco-Anxiety and Pandemic Distress," "Eco-Anxiety and Planetary Hope," and "Transgender India."
You probably lead a complicated life that’s not easy to summarize. Maybe you’re feeling stressed about work or relationships… or global warming. Or you’re exploring ways to express your gender identity. Or maybe you’re just trying to figure out what you want out of life. I enjoy working with people of diverse ethnicities, gender identities, and professions.
Specialties include working with individuals who identify as transgender or nonbinary, active military members and veterans, tech professionals, and people with climate anxiety. Our motto at Green Psychotherapy is "Your Life. Your Future." Call for a free, initial phone consultation to see whether we're a good match. I look forward to talking with you soon.
