I also have specialized experience working with lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, queer-identified individuals, as well as genderqueer, gender fluid, transgender, non-binary, and other gender diverse folks.
I prioritize developing a therapeutic relationship that is founded upon trust, integrity, compassion, and non-judgment. The emphasis is less focused on "pathology" and more on strength, resilience, and developing life and relationship effectiveness. It is my hope to support you to be more content in life, learn new ways to re-engage life and to become more empowered to move toward your vision of change. It takes tremendous courage to take the first steps toward healing, change, and growth. Thank you for considering working with me to support you on this journey.

I have worked with many and varied cases of sexual assault, domestic violence, substance abuse recovery, gambling addiction and gay and lesbian issues.
My practice is designed to help clients develop effective, satisfying and nourishing relationships with themselves and others. I believe that nothing changes if nothing changes. Therefore, when we have trouble coping with our problems, it may be necessary to make changes in our beliefs, attitudes and behaviors to improve the quality of our life. I see my role as helping clients with that process in a safe and caring environment.

If you are at the point of seriously considering therapy, then you might be experiencing intolerable pain and frustrated with life. You now recognize that something needs to change and you would like help to achieve that. The process of effective therapy requires a space of safety and protection. You typically sit across from a therapist at your most vulnerable opening up about what is truly painful and unbearable. Will they understand your experience and have the ability to help you solve the problems at the center of your pain?

It's normal for all of us to feel bad at times. Most make efforts at feeling better, including diets, exercise, or more money. Yet the latest neuroscience proves that humans are wired to heal and thrive when they feel connected to and understood by a caring and capable person. I accept and support clients so they can safely resolve emotional struggles and trauma. Clients who can face their struggles and access all parts of themselves with my support and nurturing can describe feelings of "lightness" or "relief" as a result. You don't have to do this alone, call for a complimentary phone consultation.
