Announcement icon While we are limiting in person contact to delay the spread of COVID-19, I am providing psychotherapy using videoconferencing.
People are dynamic; we are always changing in relation to one another and to our own understanding of who we are. At times, we struggle to understand why we feel the way we do. Psychotherapy can uncover our identities and our emotions in a way that allows for honesty, growth, and positive change. I am a good match for people who want to do the work of uncovering, recovering, and discovering. This is a queer-affirming and trans-affirming practice, welcoming LGBTQAI clients, and their families and loved ones.
My practice involves creativity and collaboration within a therapeutic frame. I help people who have faced challenges including depression, anxiety, gender dysphoria, abuse, family conflict, early disappointments, trauma, and bereavement. Talking to someone who listens with care and empathy can provide relief from the pervasive effects of trauma and loss.
I enjoy helping people increase their self-understanding and deepen their insight into the conflicts underlying their presenting struggles. It is my hope that we can work together to help you feel better and know yourself in a deep and meaningful way.
