When facing life's difficult challenges, it is good to know that there are places that you can turn to for help and guidance. However, finding a gay therapist can be anxiety producing because when people decide they would benefit from seeing a therapist, they are often experiencing significant upset in their lives. This is usually not the ideal moment to be dealing with the stress involved in finding someone with whom it feels safe and right to be vulnerable.

For over a decade I have worked with the LGBTQ+ community, adolescents, young adults and adults regarding family & relationship issues, transitions, career stress/burnout, self image, anxiety, depression and trauma.
For some, therapy provides a space to address a current crisis, chronic feelings of distress or to expand awareness of oneself and sometimes a mix of all three. I believe therapy is most impactful when it is tailored to each person’s unique needs and concerns. This looks different for everyone and might even look different throughout your journey. Good therapy can help you to make the changes you have been struggling with, identify the patterns that might be holding you back and ultimately help you to create a more fulfilling life.

I specialize in working with the LGBTQIA+ population, artists, as well as substance misuse & addictive behaviors in a harm-reduction model.
Therapy is an experience that can benefit everyone. It allows us to take the time to mindfully look closely at ourselves. It can help us reflect on how to manage difficult life changes, loneliness and challenging relationships. Everyone experiences stress and worry, and speaking with a therapist who is nonjudgmental and accepting can help us understand how to meet our professional, personal, and relationship needs. I am a psychotherapist with 8+ years experience. I use a practical and flexible approach to treat problems such as anxiety, depression and substance misuse.

All genders and sexual orientations are warmly welcome. My approach is collaborative, relaxed, and conversational. I don't lecture you and I don't "teach" you. We work together.

I hold specializations in group, family and couples therapy as well as a cerification in the unique patterns established in gay.
Change is inevitable but the passageway to it is difficult to navigate alone. Psychotherapy is a collaborative effort between client and therapist to aid in that journey. This is achieved through a careful look at the ingredients in life that have resulted in a unique recipe for self-structure and patterning in each person. To change the recipe is to recalculate it's components, gradually sifting out past patterns that have led to disappointment or loss and replace them with others that lead to personal fulfillment. These patterns manifest themselves in work, personal and parenting concerns.
