My expertise addresses: anxiety and worry, addictions, disordered eating, depression, self-esteem, relationships, men's/women's issues, gay/lesbian issues.
Well-being involves having awareness of and connection to your self plus good connections with others. If you have struggled with distracting from your own experience, are lost in negative self evaluation, or if you have lost your curiousity about the world, face roadblocks or obstacles to your creativity and want to get relief, reclaim a sense of aliveness, vitality, presence, purpose or optimism - then I can be of help to you. I developed Emotional Pilates - the focus is on helping you build your core emotional strength, balance, flexibility and resilience, including learning how to speak your true experience.

The belief that you are inadequate is a myth. I believe in looking for what is right with you. I am not the therapist who is going to merely sit back, listen and tell you what is wrong with you. Together we will find the gold of you, and walk the journey towards your most alive, most authentic self. We will have active conversations. I will participate. We will laugh here and there, because I’m a big believer in the healing power of humor. I will not tell you what to do or how to live, but I will help guide you toward your own inner-knowing. ​

In an often unwelcoming world, it can be challenging for us to live authentically as LGBTQ+ people. Heteronormativity, cisnormativity, and homo/bi/transphobia can impact our sense of self, relationships, and quality of life. As an LGBTQ+ affirmative therapist, I aim to provide compassionate and affirming therapy for people who are seeking support with sexual and gender identity issues, coming out, self-esteem, self-acceptance, anxiety, depression, trauma, and relationship challenges. I mindfully work to create an inviting space that respects, affirms, and values your intersecting identities and lived experiences.

I take a strength-based and person-centered approach to therapy, meaning that while I see myself as a consultant in peoples' journeys toward enhanced wellness, I work in a collaborative way that keeps the client's goals and priorities front and center. During our time together, I will listen to your story, offer reflections, and ask creative questions to gain clarity and discover the deeper and richer meanings within your narrative. Together, we will work to understand your pain and to mutually identify your strengths, resources, and desired future.

I enjoy working with individuals who are curious and thoughtful, who struggle with anxiety and want a better understanding of themselves, their impact on the world and those around them. I work with people who are overthinkers, who long for deeper connections but often get caught in circular patterns of repetitive and persistent thoughts that prevent them from being fully present in their relationships. I help people develop insight into their patterns, establish balance in their lives, and have more meaningful relationships with others.

Self-knowledge is a lifelong journey. The ideal client is one who has willingness to move inward toward deeper understanding. This most effectively occurs as we explore ourselves in relationship to others. The fit between you and your therapist is fundamental to this process. It is imperative for a client to feel safe and supported by their therapist in order to tolerate and receive the compassionate honesty and gentle confronting which are the keys to this transformative work. If you are willing and ready to confront your light and shadow, I welcome you to move inward, together. I provide psychotherapy and sex therapy.

Choosing a therapist is an important decision. In my experience, the best therapeutic work happens when there is a strong relationship between you and your therapist. I believe that healing happens when you are able to share your inner world with another person and feel safe and supported doing so. My goal is to create an environment where you feel seen, heard, cared for, and understood. Processing your experiences in therapy helps to deepen self-awareness, and can positively impact your mood, functioning, and interpersonal relationships.
