Often there is hesitation and fear when we take those first steps toward seeking help. Many people envision a therapist as a disconnected observer; however, my clinical approach is very relational and collaborative, meaning you and I both work together toward your healing. Once we've established a foundation of trust, my style tends toward creative and playful, as I feel the role of laughter is often undervalued in the therapeutic process. Our struggles are not silly, but we human beings often are. People typically enter treatment expecting tears, and they often come, but joy is equally powerful and cathartic.

We all grow up and live in a society which favors conformity. Not "fitting in" or being "different" can result in feelings of depression, low self-esteem, and isolation which can effect all aspects of our lives. This can be especially true for the LGBTQ population. As a psychodynamic therapist, my goal is to assist you in your personal development from unsatisfying or painful patterns of living and to a life that you can celebrate. While we can't change the past, we can work together to change how it continues to impact your life and resolve challenges and issues that have resulted from it.

My hope for each client is that therapy sessions leave them with curiosities about themselves and others, and a feeling of empowerment and possibility. I believe that families, our environment, and the way that we've grown up continue to affect us throughout life. As an experiential therapist, one of the main goals I have with clients is to work towards congruence; the ability to genuinely express what you think and feel with others and with yourself. In session, I use a variety of mediums depending on client preference, including typical talk-therapy interventions and creative arts.
