Are you looking to have a meaningful, more fulfilling relationship with your partner or spouse? Maybe your relationship is more complicated, more than two, and you want to talk to someone who understands the complex dynamic you live in. Are you feeling stuck, or looking for someone to help as you move into the next stage of your journey? Maybe you are just looking for a queer affirming counselor. Drawing on the experience and encouragement of someone familiar with your concerns, interested in your values and engaged in your success is not a weakness, it is a healthy human need.

Seen any of the recent hero movies? Captain Marvel, Incredibles, Spiderman, and Hacksaw Ridge are some of the recent movies with strong heroes. We like the action scenes and the funny banter between characters. Another significant reason we gravitate towards these characters is because of their code. You might say principles or values. Regardless what you might label these characteristics, they describe a way of life and how we view ourselves. Our lives might not be as exciting the movies mentioned above, nonetheless we have a way of seeing ourselves and guiding beliefs that are our own unique identity

I have worked with children, adolescents, adults and families for over 30 years. The decision to enter counseling is often a difficult one, but the rewards from a positive and productive experience are abundant. There are challenges at every stage of life that are difficult to manage without support and good information. My goal is to help every client discover what will work best for their situation in the most efficient and respectful process possible. All of us function best when we know what we want and manage our behavior to reach those goals. Good therapy is worth the investment.

Through my life and work experience, I learned to view my work through the lens of anti-oppression: I acknowledge the impact that systemic, cultural, and societal expectations have on our daily existence and sense of self. We all carry with us a unique set of intersecting identities, which, taken together, influence our life experiences and shape our worldview. I believe that the foundation of mental health exists in the exploration of these identities and the radical acceptance of our whole selves.

It can be scary to come out to your healthcare professionals, not knowing what kind of response you will receive. When you believe you must explain or defend your identity and culture, it can leave you feeling misunderstood or judged. This is why I have intentionally created an atmosphere where you feel safe and accepted exactly as you are. Since my own coming out, it has been my dream to provide a place of healing for the LGBTQ+ community. I have compassion for you as your counselor and understanding as a fellow queer person. I will respect the experience and expression of your gender, sexual, and romantic identities.

Some people ask why I became a couples therapist, and my response is: "I was born a therapist." I enjoy the uniqueness of each client and their situation, how they have attempted to solve their problems, and how they are stuck. There are many situations that are similar among clients, but the interplay with each individual and their situation is infinite. Congruency for me is key. Being the person I ask others to be, holding each person with tenderness and creativity while we move toward their goals is transformative in the therapeutic process.
