I am a psychologist who has experience working with adults from various diverse backgrounds. Using a collaborative, relational approach I help individuals with their struggles with anxiety, grief, depression, trauma, relationship difficulties, multicultural identity concerns, and life transitions. The foundation of my psychotherapy work focuses on developing a shared understanding of your current struggles and how personal, relational, familial, and cultural experiences helped shape your unique life circumstances. While doing this I help you expand and enrich your ability to cope to help empower you to create change in your life.

I provide identity affirming therapy for transgender, non-binary, and gender expansive individuals, including offering assessments and referral for gender affirming medical care. I equally have a passion for providing identity affirming care for the queer and LGB identified communities. I also enjoy working with loved ones/allies of these communities.

To help me with this process I use many therapy approaches, including Psychodynamic, Gestalt, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), as well as Attachment Theory and Systems Theory.
