I recognize diversity in sexuality as much more than LGBTQ as I practice polyamory-affirmative psychotherapy, kink awareness, and sex positivity without unnecessarily making these identities the focus of treatment.
My approach is warm and enthusiastic providing room for laughter and jokes as well as tears and vulnerability. While holding safe boundaries for my clients, I believe in the power of transparency and being my genuine self in my work with people. I am affirming and open-minded, while encouraging you to try new ideas or behaviors that support your healing.

Illness, caregiving and bereavement can change the ways we feel about ourselves, our lives and our future. The impacts can be immense, and intersect with everything else we've been through in our lives. While family and friends often mean well, many people find that working with a specialized therapist offers an additional level of support when it's difficult to cope. Whether you or someone close to you were recently diagnosed or living with an illness for years, caring for someone else, work in healthcare or whether you lost someone or something important to you, please reach out.

I have worked with many issues over the years, including anxiety, depression, marital conflict & divorce, absent fathers, LGBTQ, sexual, and career matters.
Psychotherapy offers a rather unique opportunity for an individual to get to know themselves better and to lead a more fulfilling life. We all get stuck in old patterns that are frustrating and self-defeating. It is the goal of therapy to unlock these patterns and allow for a new relationship to yourself and others. I love my role as a guide on this path, set by the individual, which clears over time with growing self awareness and agency. I seek to provide warmth, safety, and understanding as we collaborate to resolve the problems that bring someone into treatment.
