I am also sensitive to the particular needs of LGBTQ people.
Many people come to therapy seeking relief from painful symptoms, relationship issues and self-defeating patterns. They may feel alone and isolated in their suffering. I work to create a safe, respectful and supportive environment that alleviates aloneness and facilitates connection, healing and positive change. My style is relational, warm and forthright. My clients achieve more than just symptom relief -- they also grow in their capacity to feel safe and connected with others, and they experience improved self-esteem and identity.

One of the most unifying truths is that we all seek to live our lives in relative peace. For many of us, however, this peace is elusive.
