individual therapy--marriage/couples therapy --- professors, college and graduate students ---sexual abuse --- gay/lesbian/queer community -- family of origin issues -- mood problems--personality patterns/dysfunctions .
It's hard being a person. We all struggle to some extent in fundamental areas of human life-- relationships, identity, work, destructive behaviors, the meaning of life itself. Satisfying marriage/committed relationships are a specific challenge faced by many. I work in both individual and couples therapy. There are many ways to approach human problems, including: how family of origin influences personality; one's relationship to one's thoughts and feelings; self-defeating beliefs, both conscious and unconscious; self-defeating behavior. I value thoughtfulness and compassion, working together, and recognizing your goals and ideas.

I have extensive experience and passion working with underrepresented populations in counseling; particularly racial or ethnic minorities and individuals who identify as lesbian, gay, & bisexual.
I believe it is my job as a therapist to empower my clients to find their own path and truth as they understand it. In terms of theoretical orientation I would describe myself as integrative with a strong emphasis on multicultural feminist theories. How this translates into therapy is most evident in my emphasis on a collaborative approach and a goal of empowering my clients. At the same time I am engaged in continuous consideration of how multiple oppressions (sexism, racism, heterosexism, classism) in the current societal and historical context may be contributing to distress.

Gaining control over body weight brings on new possibilities, yet can also bring on a new set of unexpected realities. People who knew us as overweight may distance themselves or show signs of disapproval. We may not believe in our ability to have a fulfilling career, be a good parent or romantic partner. We progress toward our goals and feel good at first, yet we may return to former habits, and run up against a set of obsolete internal beliefs about what we capable of doing. This limits us. We want to live fully, yet these thoughts keep us from achieving our goals.

Therapy can be different things to different people. Some want a sounding board or maybe they need help navigating a difficult life-transition. For others, the idea of talking to a stranger about their troubles can be downright terrifying, or may even feel shameful. Well, there is nothing too terrible or shameful to talk about. The therapy I practice is about helping my clients to see themselves and their circumstances in new ways. It's about restoring a full range of expression. It's about expressing long stored-up negative emotions and traumas. It's about releasing the shame.

I believe therapy is a space where you can unload things that you are struggling to carry alone, develop clear insight, build greater self-compassion, and address barriers that keep you from achieving your goals. The first step in doing any one of these things is building a strong relationship with your therapist. I strive to make this possible by providing an open, judgement-free, and warm space where you can share who you are and what you are struggling to manage. I regularly work with folx age 14 and up on finding ways to manage their anxious or depressive thinking, and alleviate their stress through self-care.
