How do you treat yourself? Can you say you treat yourself with the same compassion and care you show your family? Your friends? Your partner? Are you your best supporter or your biggest critic? We should talk! My passion is working with adults who are not satisfied with their relationships - with friends, family, or significant others. You deserve to feel loved and important, I want to help you identify and remove the barriers keeping you from realizing the life you want.

You are not alone. Fear, anger, anxiety, insecurity are some ways our minds informs us that we are in need of something more. Maybe it is quitting an unhealthy habit, discovering who you are, or setting new boundaries in relationships. I will work with you to discover how to change the behavior or thought patterns that may be keeping you from thriving and feeling empowered in your own life.

I work with adults navigating trauma, anxiety, identity exploration, career development, and body image issues. I enjoy working with creatives, people exploring their gender or sexual identities, and adults in new life transitions, at any age. I take a relational, trauma-informed approach, and I use my dance and movement background to integrate embodied paths to healing. I will honor all of the experiences, values, and recalibrations that make you exactly who you are today: a nuanced, complex, unique individual who is worth knowing.

My approach to therapy is informed by mindfulness practices, focused on assisting my clients in "opening up" to the present moment while connecting to their values to strive toward their "Best Self!" I focus on assisting clients in attending to their relational concerns, which allows for them to overcome the emotional distress associated with a history of difficult and painful relationships. I find that it is my duty to establish a safe space where clients feel truly understood. In doing so, I feel honored to be able to "BE" with my clients, as they strive toward growth and empowerment.

At different points in life we can find ourselves "stuck," overwhelmed, defeated, or feeling disconnected from self or others. Social media has added another challenge for us to navigate while seeking connection. Therapy is an opportunity to make positive changes in one's life and relationships. By gaining an understanding of our needs, motives, and fears, we can move out of an "auto-pilot" mode and into an active role in our lives. I work alongside clients to help them develop a more balanced, integrated, and grounded sense of self and build awareness of their choices in order to work to defeat the obstacles creating distress.

Ever board a flight on a dark, dreary day, only to find yourself minutes later above the clouds in a clear sky? The truth is, the sun is always shining; it's just that at times, we can't see it. It's easy to loose track of the simple facts. I see therapy as a chance to remember or awaken some of the basic truths we may have known at one time, but through the ups and downs of life, have lost track of. Once reoriented to our truths, life feels more balanced and stable.

My life’s work is strengthening the LGBTQ community from the inside out. I do this by working with gay men to live the lives they desire. What often holds us back are layers of expectations and belief systems that we take on from society, our families, and others. When these systemic messages conflict with our authentic selves, this creates a dissonance that often results in anxiety, depression, and relationship issues. This isn’t something that is broken or bad in us. Quite the opposite, it’s our authentic selves yearning to be expressed!

We are lucky enough to have unique experiences in life that shape us into the individual we are. Some experiences can be joyful while others can be difficult. It may be easy for difficult experiences to overshadow the good; no two persons’ experiences affect them the same. I aim to celebrate each person’s unique identities in a safe environment while supporting them on their mental health journey.

As a person-centered and multicultural oriented therapist, it is my philosophy that you know yourself better than anyone else and that it is your right to guide the therapeutic process. I strive to meet clients where they are at. I believe that you are a unique individual with diverse experiences and there is value in that. The differences that make you, you, should not only be seen, but understood and validated. Over the past five years, I have worked in research concerning the health inequities of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ+) community, particularly among folks of color.

Battling anxiety, depression, and overwhelming stress can lead to feelings of loneliness and isolation. Your inner dialogue can become increasingly negative, and you may find yourself stuck in a seemingly unbreakable pattern of unhelpful thoughts. Through therapy, it is possible to break that cycle and engineer a new, positive, and healthy view of one's self and one's life. Through the utilization of an integrative approach, I am able to draw from a variety of therapeutic principles, to tailor our sessions to your specific needs.

Maybe you're feeling weighed down by memories that you've been trying to shake. You want to connect with a partner, but the same negative patterns keep playing out in your romantic life. A good night's sleep is rare, the tightness and stress in your shoulders is constant, but you have trouble pinning down what it's all stemming from. And you want things to change, even if you aren't sure exactly where to start. The good news is that you don't have to go through this season of life alone. I'll walk with you as we make sense of your current challenges and I'm confident that through our time, you'll begin to feel better.
