I work primarily with Transgender, Intersex, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Androgynous, Queer, or Questioning individuals and I myself identify as queer and gender fluid.
What if you could take control of your past, present and future? With a little support, you can. Everyone can benefit from a little, or a lot, of counseling. Counseling should not be scary or stressful. My goal is to create a safe space where you can be honest and real. It takes great courage to seek help. To heal, grow and thrive people need a truly non-judgmental space in which to explore strengths, weaknesses, fears, past, present, and hopes for the future. I am real, kind, honest, and trustworthy.

I endorse self-advocacy, racial and social justice, body positivity, and queer/trans identity development.
Restoring balance and healing our self-limiting beliefs really is possible. Often, our life stressors point to where we need to heal. My passion is working with folks who are motivated for that change. I work with brain-based psychotherapies of Brainspotting and EMDR to treat anxiety/depression, grief and loss, PTSD, past traumas or current triggers, abuse, concussion, birth/pregnancy issues, chronic pain, sports performance, performance expansion and more. We'll explore the origins and impacts of distress, develop self-compassion and grounding practices, process trauma and negative thoughts, and re-regulate your nervous system.

My 30 years as a Sex Therapist in private practice has enabled me to work with a large variety of relationships, sexual problems & intimacy issues. I can offer a safe place to discuss, explore, and create solutions for whatever difficulty you're experiencing. ​ Some Sex Therapy is short term (1-6 months) and often involves sexual education & permission to experience pleasure. Most Sex Therapy requires longer term therapy (1-2 years) because of relational dynamics, unhealthy beliefs about sexuality, anxiety, attachment issues from childhood, unresolved grief, trauma recovery, learning to identify & convey your sexual needs/wants.

Finding a therapist who respects us and remains compassionate is crucial. To have at least one other person who wants to understand us is a basic human need. At times what we feel, do and think do not create a happy life. We may focus on the "negative" and may easily find reasons to feel wretched. We may turn to substance use or other behaviors to cope with discomfort. You and I can discuss your unique situation, what your current behaviors may be doing for you, and explore how to achieve a sense of comfort, wellbeing and happiness. We will nurture your confidence and acknowledge your strengths and wisdom. We all belong here.
