What do we have to gain from therapy? Therapy can help with a variety of challenges. For some it can help with improving communication within our relationships. Therapy can offer us time to reflect on what it is we want, are needing, or what we feel is missing. Therapy can also assist with understanding what we can do as parents to effectively guide our children and teens in challenging times. Above all, therapy offers another set of trained eyes to help gain the clarity needed to move forward.

**Telehealth Available**NEW INTAKE availability!** I have often hoped that counseling could be viewed as routine as oil changes or perhaps, more pleasant: lunch. The truth is that counseling is often utilized during crises or when things feel “too much.” Maybe your experiences have led to challenges in your relationships, leaning on numbing agents to cope, having thoughts that are not typical for you, avoiding things in your life. Maybe old wounds are resurfacing or you're grieving something huge. You might not even know why you're reaching out. Anything is acceptable here. All I require from you is curiosity.

The world may be telling you that you are not enough, that you need to change in order to fit in. Sometimes that pressure to fit neatly into a particular box is more than you feel you can overcome on your own. That is where therapy can help. My practice is greatly informed by Anna Quindlen's quote: "The thing that is really hard and really amazing is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself". You do not need to change to meet the world's expectations, you are already perfect as you are and I want to help you believe that.

Therapy is about empowering individuals and coming face-to-face with adversities in order to create richer and more fulfilling lives. Clients are guided to explore past experiences as they impact current emotions and behaviors. I help clients process debilitating emotional issues, deal with shame, and gain a greater knowledge of themselves. Through therapy, we bring issues to the surface so that clients gain the ability to direct their own lives. I have been helping people develop their personal strengths and understand and modify their relationships for over 30 years, and have seen countless clients transform themselves.

Reaching out to a therapist is a bold move. It takes courage to begin the process of self exploration and discovery, and it takes a safe place to do that important work. I am committed to providing that safe space for my clients. I believe that the relationship between a therapist and client is a unique and healing one. It is two minds coming together to explore the ways in which current life stresses intersect with painful past experiences to create suffering. When a client feels respected and seen, they are able to grieve their past hurts and find new paths for coping.

I work with LGBTQIA kids, and I specialize in supporting kids that are easily overwhelmed. These children have tender hearts and oh-so-real struggles. Tears, shut downs, Game of Thrones-level fights with siblings, and that’s just distance learning on a Tuesday! Then, there is their LGBTQIA identity. (Or yours!) The things you celebrate and nurture at home also cause worry when you think about your child out in the world. The idea that someone could bully them for who they are is too painful to contemplate.
