Are you looking for an LGBTQ+ relationship expert? Does your gender diverse or gay child need help, but you aren't sure what to do? Or maybe you are an adult struggling with self acceptance, stuck in old hurts or patterns and unsure how to break free? I am committed to helping individuals, couples, and families overcome these emotional and relational challenges. I am ready for you to invite healing into your life and here to provide the tools you need to begin exploring uncharted emotional landscapes, strengthening relationships, and simply feel better able to cope with day to day challenges.
I am particularly passionate about working with trans and gender diverse youth, their families, and trans adults in romantic relationships. I specialize in working with survivors of developmental trauma, youth experiencing emotional challenges, and couples or families seeking to enhance connection, conflict resolution, and communication.
It is no easy feat to open your life to another, to embrace vulnerability, and to accept support. I take pride in nurturing empathic, supportive therapeutic relationships, as well as an overall atmosphere of hope, empowerment, and respect, using approaches that drive positive outcomes. I am ready to help you make significant and meaningful changes.
