My specializations also include Affirmative therapy for members of the LGBTQIA community.
Lately, you’ve been feeling very depressed, and despite those strong feelings of sadness and worry you manage to put on a confident face because it seems like everyone relies on you. You find yourself sleeping much more (when you can actually get to sleep) noticing changes in your appetite and you've even been slowly distancing yourself from your friends and family. You’ve struggled with ongoing family concerns, and toxic relationships and for some reason, you always feel like somehow you’re the problem. You don't feel motivated, your situation feels hopeless and you worry excessively about things you can't control.

I enjoy working with persons identifying as LGBTQ .
I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist, who loves to help people create a lasting sense of happiness, meaning, and well-being in their lives. I believe that health constitutes a state of relative balance between all the "strains" put on our system (e.g. daily life stressors, losses, obligations, negative life events, etc.) and the physical, mental, spiritual and relational resources we have available to us to draw upon. In therapy, I work with people to identify "where there is too much energy in their lives, and where the energy is missing," in order to help them create more harmonious, full, and vibrant life.

The past several years have allowed me the opportunity to serve within the LGBTQ + community as a volunteer, mentor, and leader.
In a world of Snapchat filters, Photoshop, and social media posts of others ‘living their best life,’ it’s far too easy to believe that everyone (but you) has it all together. Do you wonder if you’re the only one who struggles with esteem, image, sex, and relationships? Spoiler alert: you are NOT the only one fighting those battles and you are NOT alone. I have devoted my life to helping others in their worst moments. After spending more than twenty years in public safety, I decided to be helpful in a very different way and began my journey on a new path that includes counseling, activism, and education.

As a seasoned therapist my experience includes a wide spectrum of mental health issues.

Please email don't call. Everyone has something in their life or about themselves that they want to change or something comes up and change is forced upon a person. Sometimes it is difficult and sometimes it is frightening, but the good news is that no matter what, from controlling anxiety to having medical procedures performed, you don't have to go through it alone. I am here to help. I have particular strengths and certifications in anxiety, stress, chronic pain, and medical hypnosis and I also offer general vocational and avocational self improvement services.

Thank you for considering me as a potential counselor! Seeking counseling is not always an easy decision for us to make and might feel a little scary. The challenges that life presents us are often what drives us to get help, but counseling also offers us the potential for tremendous personal growth. In my view, life’s hardships (a.k.a. “growth experiences”) may have beautiful outcomes, but the growing process itself can be slightly uncomfortable (or more than slightly!). I believe like most other creatures in nature we are more likely to blossom if we are in an environment that provides us with the elements we need to grow.
