I also have specialized experience working with lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, queer-identified individuals, as well as genderqueer, gender fluid, transgender, non-binary, and other gender diverse folks.
I prioritize developing a therapeutic relationship that is founded upon trust, integrity, compassion, and non-judgment. The emphasis is less focused on "pathology" and more on strength, resilience, and developing life and relationship effectiveness. It is my hope to support you to be more content in life, learn new ways to re-engage life and to become more empowered to move toward your vision of change. It takes tremendous courage to take the first steps toward healing, change, and growth. Thank you for considering working with me to support you on this journey.

I have worked with many and varied cases of sexual assault, domestic violence, substance abuse recovery, gambling addiction and gay and lesbian issues.
My practice is designed to help clients develop effective, satisfying and nourishing relationships with themselves and others. I believe that nothing changes if nothing changes. Therefore, when we have trouble coping with our problems, it may be necessary to make changes in our beliefs, attitudes and behaviors to improve the quality of our life. I see my role as helping clients with that process in a safe and caring environment.

I often sit with people experiencing anxiety and confusion about growth, change, grief or disappointing events. When our lives are destabilized it's hard to think and emotions are rocking. At the very same time that more is asked of us, new stressors may amplify old self-doubt. A therapist can ask questions that lead to new behaviors - helping you find your wise mind and accepting what you must - so you may reclaim strength. There are tools that can support your path towards resilience. If symptoms have made their way into your daily functioning, don't stay in a place of misery. Let me help you get back to your best self.

While I work with a wide variety of ages--from youth to adults to elders--for most of my clients depression or anxiety is impacting life in a negative way. Sometimes grief causes this disruption; sometimes a history of early life trauma continues to undermine a sense of well-being; sometimes low self-esteem or feelings of being alone are intensifying. One may be struggling and hasn't yet found a way to make sense of why--"something just feels wrong inside of me but others cannot see or understand it."
