About

In facing life’s challenges, I believe in the importance of asking ourselves, “What’s right with me?” and identifying and building on our strengths. I enjoy accompanying people in exploring themselves with non-judgmental curiosity as they develop greater awareness of their thoughts, feelings, and ways of dealing with whatever life has in store. How have these been influenced by personal experiences growing up and by larger social factors? Gaining this insight allows us to discover what changes might be right for us or to come to accept ourselves just as we are.
I have experience working with adults of all ages. My primary approach is person-centered, strengths-focused, psychodynamic counseling. I also use cognitive behavioral, dialectical behavioral, skills-based, and solution-focused approaches to assist clients in defining and making progress toward their goals.
Promoting social justice and combating stigma are fundamental to my practice. I’m particularly committed to creating a comfortable space for LGBTQ+ people to receive support and work on whatever has prompted them to seek counseling. I have training in providing affirming care to transgender and gender-expansive individuals. Kink-aware and poly-affirming.
