Your life is complicated, and you are doing your best to keep all the pieces organized. Some aspects of your life are out of alignment and causing distress, anxiety, and leaving you unfulfilled. Maybe some experiences have stripped away your sense of control, self-worth, and dignity. It’s hard to admit that. My clients are motivated to improve the quality of their lives. They may not know exactly how to make this happen when we begin working together, but they know they want to be healthier and happier. In addition, many of my clients identify as LGBTQ+ and prefer to work with someone that is part of the community.

I enjoy working with adults of all ages, genders, and sexual orientations, and have a particular fondness for engaging with members of the LGBTQ community.
I engage with people in the here and now to alleviate distressing symptoms, patterns of thinking and interacting that contribute to a feeling of "stuckness." Working collaboratively, we examine these dynamics through the lense of your own personal history, and as they emerge in the therapy between therapist and patient. Often, self-defeating internal narratives and behaviors are learned in childhood and protect against larger anxieties. Together, we work to figure out what still serves you and what doesn't, with a goal of increasing self-awareness, improving relationships and fostering an overall sense of aliveness.

I work with adults for individual therapy and I am particularly passionate about working with folks who are LGBTQ+ or gender non-conforming and polyamorous/non-monogamous folks.
I practice with a Narrative Therapy approach. I believe that the problem is the problem and you are not the problem. I will work to open up space between you and the problem you are experiencing. Externalizing the problem creates new possibilities for interacting with the problem in a way that empowers you to have more agency in your life. I will work to help you develop a preferred storyline that is more in line with the hopes, beliefs and values that you hold dear, and work toward living life within that storyline instead of the problem-saturated story.
