Are you exhausted, struggling, longing for more, constantly committing to "get your life together?" Do you feel like you're constantly dropping loose ends and wonder how everyone else does it? Or are you overwhelmed, overstimulated, and overextended, jittery during the day and not sleeping at night? Has a moment in time caught you in its web and you are ready to become untangled? Are you "different" ( LGBTQIA +, ethically non-monogamous, Pagan or pagan-friendly, etc.) and looking for a therapist who "gets it"? Whatever the journey has brought you, your courageous heart has led you here.

I have particular experience and interest working with clients on topics of sexual orientation and gender identity, particularly within the LGBTQ + community.
I believe in a safe and open relationship between client and therapist is the foundation of change, and I value getting to know each of my clients to best understand your experiences. I believe in identifying and using your strengths and values to help you progress toward your therapy goals. Social justice is an important value of mine, and I work with clients to identify systemic factors that impact you, your relationships, and your mental health, to view the bigger picture of client problems and avoid over-pathologizing clients, especially those from marginalized communities.

I work with adolescents and adults struggling with anxiety, depression, step-parenting challenges, life adjustments and transitions, and the LGBTQIA + community.
You are worthy of a peaceful, fulfilling, meaningful life. So many of us struggle with emotional pain, insecurities, or symptoms of mental health conditions like anxiety and depression. You may find that the ways you have learned to handle these struggles are not moving your life in the direction you want. People pleasing, perfectionism, overworking, and self-sabotaging are among many ways people cope. If you want to make a change, but don’t know how, therapy can help. You deserve to be seen and understood, and you don’t have to do this alone.

I work with straight and gay alike.
I have 38 years experience counseling people with relationship issues; couples with family and marital problems; parents needing help with teens; straight and gay / lesbian couples wanting a healthier relationship. Relationship problems trigger issues like low self esteem,depression, and anxiety. I believe that most unhappiness stems from one or more problem relationships. My ideal client is tired of others trying to control or change them through behaviors like criticism, nagging, threatening, blaming, and complaining. And, my ideal client is one who wants to stop using these same behaviors that are harmful to their relationships.

While this is my niche, working with LGBT clients, women in recovery and those with concerns with their spirituality are among my primary specialties as well.
If you are looking for a compassionate therapist, you have come to the right place. Being with the dying with 25 years of hospice experience and listening to grieving loved ones provides a gentle, caring backdrop for my work. If you are dealing with loss of any kind, have 1 year or more in your journey with 12-Step recovery, or in relationship struggles, I will walk with you in this journey. My work is client focused and strengths based . If you are in the LGBTQ community you will find a safe haven here. Come and find peace for heart and soul. During Covid-19 I am using telehealth and see clients now in office. Masks preferred.

My goal is to make the first step into this journey for you safe and comfortable.

I work with clients who are ready for change and are eager to honestly examine their lives-- clients who are ready to explore issues which have generated disappointments, resentments, loneliness, pain, anger, or heartache. Life is hard, and at times we all need someone who will see us, hear us, and help us explore who we are and why we do the things we do. My approach is primarily psychodynamic and it is highly influenced by object relations and attachment theory. I believe our work is a collaborative effort. I provide a compassionate, engaging and respectful environment for clients.

“Why am I like this?” Not enough... too much...!! You’ve always felt misunderstood by the people closest to you, and here you are AGAIN attempting to find a therapist that gets you. The more you're misunderstood by others, the more you lose touch with yourself. A new medication, googling life's problems, scrolling your fyp for answers to why life seems to hate you. Your relationships are shallow and dissatisfying in person and online. It's hard to connect when you are deep and different. Life is f*@#ing lonely. You’re ready to start liking yourself which means working through the hard shit! Fear won't hold you back anymore.

As guys, we don't really like to talk about it. You know, the stress, the dissatisfaction with our lives, our relationships, our jobs. Hitting that point in life where things just aren't what we thought they were supposed to be. So we shut down. We get angry and irritable. We stuff it down because we're never supposed to let them see us sweat. The problem is we end up exhausted, frustrated, and just plain lost. But if you want to find your way again, you've got to stop and ask for directions at some point, right?
