About

I provide ADHD solutions-focused therapy and DBT solutions-focused therapy to gender expansive, queer, and neurodivergent clients. This work is skills-based, fun, sometimes honestly hilarious, compassionate, non-judgmental and meant to help clients reach their goals with distress tolerance, behavior change, executive functioning challenges, task completion, short-term blocks or hurdles, and long-term planning, organization, and emotion regulation.
With 14 years in the counseling and psychology field, and as many years in management and leadership, I utilize evidence-based as well as holistic approaches and my motivational sense of humor and ease to help clients achieve their targets as well as their sense of Wise Mind, or Intuition, to move forward in their lives effectively and with self-compassion.
I lead with compassion, rapport-building, and discernment, assisting clients in identifying goals, where they are stuck, and together we find the strategies to get through those barriers and towards lasting change. Sometimes the work takes very little time, for others, the work may take longer. Whatever length the journey, I approach you like it's worth it.
