I specialize in assisting members of the LGBTQ+ community. However, I have considerable expertise and interest in helping those suffering from a wide range of issues from mild mental health issues to severe and persistent mental illness. I believe taking the step of seeking out therapy is a positive one and one that can benefit anyone. I tailor each therapy session to the individual client as well as the therapy goals that may (and frequently do) shift while progress is made during the therapy process. I view the therapy process as a journey taken by both therapist and client.

I offer a nonjudgmental, understanding, and therapeutic approach that will help you to work through anxiety, depression, sexual assault/trauma, relationship difficulties, loss and grief, addiction, LGBTQ issues, and career counseling.
Thank you for visiting my profile. My apologies, at this time I am NOT accepting new clients. There are times in life in which we all need some help. It can also be difficult to find someone who understands the struggles and situations you face. The decision to seek therapy can be stressful but it is a healthy indicator that you are ready to take the first step to a balanced life.

I enjoy working with clients from all walks of life, and am LGBTQ affirming.
You and your partner feel stuck and don’t know how to make things better. Arguments can go in circles and never feel resolved. Sometimes the smallest disagreement can escalate quickly. You don’t know why it has to be this hard when both of you want to feel understood and cared for. Maybe major life transitions and changes have made it hard to feel as connected as you used to. You miss feeling close, and like they have your back. Talking about your issues doesn’t seem to help, but avoiding them isn’t working either.

Psychotherapy can help you make sense of complicated feelings, gain insight into relational patterns, and begin to move forward in areas of your life where you feel stuck. My focus is to help you untangle struggles, set meaningful goals, revise problematic narratives about yourself, and re-orient you toward your values. My integrative approach is informed by psychodynamic, feminist, multicultural, relational, and behaviorist theories. Above all, I value the therapeutic relationship and your personal growth.

My primary focus is on helping couples and individuals with sexual issues. In working with couples, I find dissatisfaction with partnered sex is often linked to deeper relationship difficulties and the two can be intertwined. In other instances, the therapeutic focus is primarily on enhancing technique and increasing desire rather than improving the relationship. I also work individually with women to eliminate barriers to sexual wellness and increase acceptance. I enjoy working with gay, lesbian, and heterosexual clients and have respect for sexual fluidity and variance in erotic interest.

Many people suffer under the weight of their sadness, fear, anger, and pain; others struggle to feel anything at all. Our self-esteem, relationships, or work can suffer as old cognitive, emotional, and behavioral paradigms are applied to new situations, often outside of our awareness. While it may seem daunting, exploring your thoughts, feelings, and experiences within the context of a safe therapeutic relationship can increase your access to, your awareness of, and your sense of control over your internal world. Through this process, you will find your strength, resilience, agency, and, ultimately, your freedom to more effectively shape your external world.
