I have also worked extensively with gay and lesbian patients, in various phases of their acceptance, openness and capacity to live a full life with a true appreciation of who they are and the relationships in their lives.
I believe all people desire peace of mind and contentment. I have helped people with emotional struggles for over 25 years, empowering them to attain greater acceptance and compassion for oneself as well as the people in their life and family. I take a mindful approach to therapy which encourages peace of mind and an appreciation for one's own uniqueness and strength. By listening to a patient's life story from a compassionate, non-judgmental stance, I have witnessed the development of strength, confidence, and courage necessary to gracefully weather the storms that are an inevitable part of life.

It is valid to feel anxious, out of control and experience feelings related to depression especially with our world in its current state. In addition you may be dealing with personal trauma, relationship issues, loss, mental illness and more. It can be difficult to find a place where you feel comfortable and safe enough to be real without fear of being judged. I want our sessions to be that place for you. I know that one size does not fit all and that everyone has their own unique experience and needs. I want to hear your story and to create a plan together that promotes well-being, healing and self-acceptance.

I believe psychotherapy can help with almost anything. Sometimes clients come in needing assistance with making a tough decision, while other times they’re needing tools to help better cope with anxiety or depression. I feel called to work with younger folks - children and adolescents specifically. I typically see children who are experiencing familial issues, ADHD, learning difficulties, and behavioral issues. Adolescence can be uncomfortable and confusing. It is a painful time for teenagers. I am deeply passionate about providing them with unconditional support, empathy, and a safe space to share their emotions.
