I have experience providing affirming therapy to the LGBTQIA + community and individuals impacted by HIV+/AIDS.
I strive to develop a collaborative environment with each client so they can feel safe and comfortable discussing what brought them to therapy, identify their goals, and take steps to building a meaningful and rich life. I am interactive in the therapy process and support clients with practical tools and strategies to challenge old patterns, while incorporating new skills that aim to improve the client's ability to live more intentionally and authentically. I employ elements of ACT, DBT, and CBT to respond to the unique needs of the individual.

Finding a queer affirming therapist can sometimes feel impossible, but I specialize in working with people within the queer community. Are you struggling with finding a therapist that is queer affirming or are you feeling like you have to educate your therapist about the distinct experiences you have as a queer identified person? Have you been unable to find someone that specializes in working with trans spectrum clients? I dedicate my practice to primarily serving folx in the queer community and specifically trans clients.

I specialize in treating lesbian , gay and transgendered clients and the myriad issues that accompany their lives.
I believe people often become stuck in unhealthy patterns of behavior just because they have not learned another way. Many clients have strengths and abilities they have overlooked. These are the gems we will discover to aid empowerment, growth and achievement of life goals. Effective communication and coping skills are incorporated into treatment giving clients the tools to make positive changes. Therapy often includes alternative modalities such as guided visualization,writing, art and relaxation techniques. Each client is honored as an individual, with therapy adapted to their specific needs and comfort levels.

We work with a diversity of people, all ages, who deal with a variety of life stressors. Job/school stress, mounting anxiety, persistent sadness, parent-child problems, divorce, panic, LGBTQ concerns, life transition, and grief and loss are among the issues we most commonly work with. Our approach to therapy is first to really understand you as an individual - your goals, your areas of concern, your family, your job environment, etc. Sometimes, we find diagnostic tools helpful in clarifying issues and generating therapy goals. We work to hear and understand your needs so together we can improve the problems.

I am a LGBTQ , and poly friendly therapist.
Therapy is about finding someone who matches your style. Someone who will listen with an open ear and remains non-judgmental, all while pushing you outside of your comfort zone. I believe the therapeutic relationship is the most important piece of therapy. In life you will encounter a lot of experiences that can leave you with feelings of uncertainty, overwhelmed, and overall dissatisfaction. The decision to seek therapy is positive and courageous, and I’m glad you have made this choice. As a therapist, I believe in bridging the gap that can ultimately lead you on the path to being the best version of yourself.

WHEN THE GOING GETS TOUGH, THE TOUGH GET GOING You may not feel tough right now, but deep down you know you have the strength to tackle the problems you are facing. These problems may be extraordinary stressors, life transitions, combat fatigue, post-partum depression, unexpected/expected loss of close relationships, trauma, abuse, or relationship problems. I can be part of the team that assists you in strengthening the resources that you have inside. RELATIONSHIPS AND FAMILIES CAN BE LIKE DOMINOS Families and couples are linked. If part of that link is broke or off balance, other members involved can be affected.

I believe that all people have the potential to overcome whatever obstacles are in their life path, and our relationship is very important in helping you overcome those obstacles. So with that in mind, I will initially spend time just getting to know you and helping you feel comfortable and understood. You can expect a compassionate listener who will help you express issues that sometimes are uncomfortable to talk about. I will also help you establish goals for our work together that will be clear from the beginning of your treatment until the end.

As a professional counselor I seek to work with individuals in a non-judgmental, understanding and compassionate manner. I hope to assist people to bring about choice and empowerment that they may feel is not possible. Life can be difficult but help is out there and available. I do tend to take a reality based and person centered approach within my sessions, however every person is an individual and therefore my interventions will be tailored to that particular person. I specialize in working with depression and every day issues that bring anxiety or despair to a person.

We all have the capacity within us to effect positive change in our lives, but sometimes we get “stuck” in vicious cycles. In these times we may need additional guidance and support in order to get through some of the things life has thrown our way. If you are here, it means you are at least considering making those changes. I utilize an integrative, harm-reduction approach which draws on the unique strengths of each individual as the key to narrating their own healing process. I enjoy working with a wide variety of clients, but specialize in adult and young adult populations.

We all struggle at times, and sometimes family and friends are enough to help us manage, but there are times when these struggles become more than we can handle alone. It is at these times that we need a non-judgmental, supportive person who will be accepting and listen, and collaboratively work to help find solutions.

Whether you’ve experienced trauma, loss, grief, or are experiencing depression, anxiety, and stress, I can help you. I understand how scary it can be to befriend the dark places within. Yet, relief from our pain comes from turning towards our pain – with reverence and compassion. If we do not go within, we go without. Are you ready for deeper levels of healing and expansion? Perhaps you need support coping with life transitions or processing difficult emotions and experiences, or maybe you’d like to improve your relationships, increase self-acceptance, self-awareness, and joy – I can help you with that, too.
