Effective counseling is all about connection. We seek to be understood, to be known, and to share life with someone else. Counseling provides a safe place to try out ways of connecting with another person, with ourselves, and with our world without fear of hurting others or our own reputation in the process. The majority of my clients come to me wanting to work on navigating life with differences of gender identity and sexuality; taking time to shared in a safe place is vitally important.

Choosing to see a therapist is not always an easy decision. It is often hard to imagine sharing difficult, painful or shameful feelings with a stranger. Choosing to see a therapist is also a brave decision, filled with possibility. As an experienced clinical psychologist, I believe that therapy is most effective when it is a collaborative effort, in which client and therapist work together to know and understand the strengths and challenges that confront the client every day. Therapy is the work of knowing oneself and then setting out to manage these discoveries effectively.
