You are not your disorder or your symptoms. You are a wonderfully complex human with painful wounds and awe-inspiring strengths - much like the rest of us. We can work together to remove the layers of armor, defenses, ineffective coping strategies, and scar tissue to find the person underneath - the person you are meant to be. Together, we can help you thrive with happiness and meaning despite an often difficult world. My practice is sex positive, culturally sensitive, and LGBTQ+ affirming. I honor all the ways we choose to live our lives. I look forward to meeting you, fellow human.
I specialize in psychodynamic and humanistic therapies - forms of therapy that see the whole person, not just a label or a symptom. I further utilize tools from other therapies to best serve each client with whom I work. I specialize in psychological testing/assessment of adolescents and adults.
I work with many autistic and attention challenged individuals from a Neurodiversity perspective. This sees neurological differences as valid and valuable, and recognizes that the idea of "normal" changes by society and context. I am affirming of neurological differences and teach people to embrace their differences and use them constructively.
