I am the founder and clinical director of the Maryland Center for Gender and Intimacy. As a psychotherapist, I specialize in gender, sex, and affirming treatment of LGBTQIA2+ people. I provide compassionate, skilled therapy to clients seeking to heal, connect with their authentic selves, and strengthen relationships. I support gender-diverse individuals as they pursue gender congruence. I help families to better understand their transgender loved ones and navigate gender transition together. I also provide free assessments to those seeking letters of support for gender-affirming medical care.
As a sex and relationship therapist, I work with individuals and partners of all identities who seek to heal, understand, and improve their intimate relationships. I am kink- and poly-aware and affirming. I work with relationship partners to find deeper connection, improve communication, and resolve conflict. 
I work from a liberationist, anti-oppressive treatment perspective that focuses on healing from all forms of suffering. I believe a safe, affirming therapy relationship can be a place to begin healing and brave change. I look forward to exploring the possibility of working with you.
