I have particular specialty working with individuals in the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community (LGBT) and with people from various religious and cultural backgrounds.
People seek psychotherapy for a variety of reasons. Some look to improve their relationships, some want to feel calmer, while others simply want to experience their emotions more fully. I see therapy as a collaborative conversation in which I help you reach your personal goals. I take an individualized approach and try to create a safe space in which you can explore a range of topics in an effort to learn about yourself and make changes as you see helpful. No matter your goal, I will do my best to understand you and help you better understand yourself.

Change is inevitable but the passageway to it is difficult to navigate alone. Psychotherapy is a collaborative effort between client and therapist to aid in that journey. This is achieved through a careful look at the ingredients in life that have resulted in a unique recipe for self-structure and patterning in each person. To change the recipe is to recalculate it's components, gradually sifting out past patterns that have led to disappointment or loss and replace them with others that lead to personal fulfillment. These patterns manifest themselves in work, personal and parenting concerns.

What I enjoy most about being a therapist is fostering relationships, and creating a space in which clients can build trust and learn more about themselves through the process. Often people choose to start therapy because they are seeking change. That change may involve finding new ways to navigate anxiety, depression, or other emotional pain. It may involve setting new boundaries in relationships. It may involve living life more intentionally and authentically. While change can be overwhelming, my goal as a therapist is to ease that challenge by partnering with clients to build on their strengths and deepen their perspectives.

For some, therapy provides a space to address a current crisis, chronic feelings of distress or to expand awareness of oneself and sometimes a mix of all three. I believe therapy is most impactful when it is tailored to each person’s unique needs and concerns. This looks different for everyone and might even look different throughout your journey. Good therapy can help you to make the changes you have been struggling with, identify the patterns that might be holding you back and ultimately help you to create a more fulfilling life.

Have the emotions/feelings ever been worked through your system, through your body, in order for you to find relief? Has it be processed in a way that frees your energy for purposes that YOU direct?

Most of us don't welcome difficult emotions; we try to disregard them, because we perceive them as our enemy. In fact, all of our emotions are signals that inform us about ourselves and the world around us, if we can learn to listen to them. When we accept all sides of ourselves and all of our feelings without discriminating against the negative ones, we are able to feel emotionally alive and connected. Psychological suffering occurs not because of our painful emotions, but because we try to erase them, and don't know what to do with them.
