You will also find Resolute Rainbows: Group therapy for parents and children, with whom their child identifies as transgender or gender non-conforming+.
I am unfortunately not taking new clients at this time*** I strongly believe that whether someone is simply going through some uncomfortable stress, or enduring a very painful transition in life, together we can find answers that will renew hope and help you feel empowered to change your life. I practice Solution-Focused Brief Therapy and recognize that the patient is the expert in their own life. I work collaboratively with individuals, couples, and families to find unique solutions to complex problems. I believe focusing on patient strengths, not weaknesses, elicits hope and leaves room for meaningful and long lasting change. ​

We get the message from others to “suck it up, things will get better”. Why is there such stigma around taking care of brain health? We have big emotions, intrusive thoughts, and body sensations that can be scary. Yet, we hide that and push them way down deep and hope it doesn’t bubble up. Having emotions and thoughts and sensations are NORMAL, and healthy. Learning how to manage the BIG emotions and life events are important to living a well and holistic lifestyle. Don’t do it alone, let me help you.

My services are currently via Telehealth only. I take private pay & 3-4 specific insurance companies. My primary passion is helping the LGBTQ+ community. This includes assessment/letters of support for HRT/Surgical interventions. I also support those questioning, curious or struggling with these changes for themselves or their family members. I believe everyone has their own unique way of seeing the world based on their experiences, conscious beliefs and unconscious thought. You will find that I tend to "tell it like it is". Please email vs. calling. If I am full I can provide options via email far quicker than via phone.

Making the decision to seek help is one of the bravest things a person can do and I am proud to be able to offer that help. I believe that change is possible when there is support and compassion present, which is why I use a mixture of therapeutic techniques to elicit those changes. I work with individuals, couples, and families to identify solutions and implement positive changes in the lives of my clients. Utilizing a strengths based approach allows hope to be a building block for that change and shift attention away from perceived weaknesses.

Person-centered. Trauma-informed. Solution-focused. These are the words I choose most frequently to describe my work in the therapy room. My greatest desire is to hold space for every individual that enters space with me, and support each of them as they learn to hold space for themselves. It is my goal to create a counter-cultural environment that allows us to work together to support you, your partner and your family to work to create a healthier framework for your relationships with each other and with yourself.

The most powerful predictor of whether therapy will be effective is your relationship with your therapist. Finding the right one can feel overwhelming but you are already on your way. My approach is warm, empathetic and straightforward. I am accepting and direct while focusing on strengths and growth. I do not "beat around the bush" as they say, while also being understanding and kind. I know how important it is to find the right "fit" with a therapist so I offer free 30 minute intro sessions so you can determine if I am the right therapist for you.
