I work with all types of clients (couples, children, individuals) but especially marginalized groups (especially LGBTQ+) who need a place to feel comfortable, accepted, understood and respected. A place where feelings are valued, validated and matter. You may have been displaced, made to feel wrong, unaccepted and unwelcome. You want a safe space where you can express yourself freely and not be judged as society and others may have judged you. A place where you can be heard and work on feeling proud and wonderful with who you are and process negative experiences so you can be fully your authentic self and enjoy a fulfilling life.
I am an interpersonal psychodynamic therapist. I offer a safe space for clients to talk about whatever is meaningful and difficult for them. I offer a working therapeutic relationship where together we can process feelings and experiences that can help change lives for the better. I provide options for different outcomes that we may explore together.
I am a nonjudgmental, open, warm hearted listener with a truly empathetic ear. I have experienced many things in my life that give me the unique insight and understanding to hear anything my clients care to share and say and together help them find a way through whatever is making things difficult for them. I am here for you and I truly care.

"
I often use interpersonal therapy. It's a two person relationship where together we explore your experiences in your life. In our first session we explore what brings you to therapy and what we can do together to process what you'd like to change and how we can create a safe environment to make that happen. I am here to listen and understand where you are and where you want to go.
