My clinical focus pertains to helping my clients combat anxiety, depression, LGBTQIA-related issues, grief, sexual health concerns & trauma while increasing mindfulness, confidence, and emotional intelligence.
Therapy is not a one-size-fits-all approach. I aim to provide my clients with a customized approach fit to their unique & modern needs. I offer my clients empathy, support and transparency. I am passionate about working with couples/co-habitators, queer folks, college & masters level students, creatives, parents, fellow mental health providers, and professional caretakers like teachers, nurses, nannies. I work with adults in their 20's, 30's, 40's & beyond as they juggle the stress and demands of modern life such as transitions, marginalization & more.

For the past 4 decades plus, I have specialized in LGBTQ issues. I currently focus on gender identity issues and assist my transgender clients with navigating their often challenging journeys. As an "out" cisgender lesbian practitioner, I strive to help my LGBTQ clients travel from a place of shame to pride. Much of our work centers on self- esteem and the ways in which homophobia and transphobia impact so many areas of our lives-including family, career, and our intimate relationships. I love animals and also do veterinary counseling and consulting. My style is interactive and casual. I highly value your confidentiality.
