individual therapy--marriage/couples therapy --- professors, college and graduate students ---sexual abuse --- gay/lesbian/queer community -- family of origin issues -- mood problems--personality patterns/dysfunctions .
It's hard being a person. We all struggle to some extent in fundamental areas of human life-- relationships, identity, work, destructive behaviors, the meaning of life itself. Satisfying marriage/committed relationships are a specific challenge faced by many. I work in both individual and couples therapy. There are many ways to approach human problems, including: how family of origin influences personality; one's relationship to one's thoughts and feelings; self-defeating beliefs, both conscious and unconscious; self-defeating behavior. I value thoughtfulness and compassion, working together, and recognizing your goals and ideas.

I have extensive experience and passion working with underrepresented populations in counseling; particularly racial or ethnic minorities and individuals who identify as lesbian, gay, & bisexual.
I believe it is my job as a therapist to empower my clients to find their own path and truth as they understand it. In terms of theoretical orientation I would describe myself as integrative with a strong emphasis on multicultural feminist theories. How this translates into therapy is most evident in my emphasis on a collaborative approach and a goal of empowering my clients. At the same time I am engaged in continuous consideration of how multiple oppressions (sexism, racism, heterosexism, classism) in the current societal and historical context may be contributing to distress.

Many of us reach a point when we need help and support in order to change old patterns or work through difficult issues. My goal as a therapist is to help adolescents, adults, and couples gain a deeper understanding of their feelings, thoughts, behaviors, and relationship patterns so they are better able to live more satisfying and deliberate lives. I help clients do this by working with them to connect the things that have shaped them, such as their family and social relationships, the way they think about themselves and others, as well as their attachment and trauma experiences, to their current issues and life situations.

“If it’s mentionable, it’s manageable” is one of my favorite quotes from Fred Rogers (best known as Mr. Rogers). That sentiment is at the core of my therapy practice. When we talk about our problems in a safe and accepting environment, they start to feel less overwhelming or all-consuming. I have over 15 years of experience in helping people find an increased sense of self-worth, joy and accomplishment in their lives. I can help you gain insight into your thoughts and feelings, develop coping skills and other strengths while honoring the unique person you are and the life-experiences you bring to therapy.

Some people who see me are having a difficult time with a life transition or have been unable to bounce back from a significant loss. Some have a history of being traumatized in ways that still impact them, or have problematic and unproductive ways of coping with life's difficulties.
