I am a therapist in private practice with a caseload consisting of adults, adolescents, and varied family and relationship groupings. My approach is client centered and collaborative, tailoring each therapy to the individual or family culture. I am most interested in helping people improve their lives and harnessing their own strengths and resources. My techniques emphasize cultural competency and are informed by many theoretical foundations including psychodynamic theory, family systems theory, and cognitive-behavioral theory. My practice is currently only virtual due to the pandemic.
I have a specialty in working with people around sexual identity and gender identity and maintain an open and non-judgmental stance so as to allow for maximum exploration and growth. I use a sex positive approach, and will affirm all relationship structures and Identity configurations. I identify and present as gender non-conforming.
Starting therapy can be daunting, my style is relaxed and informal and it is my job to help those in my office feel comfortable, accepted and seen. I am committed to helping people make their life work better for them, without judgement. My pronouns are she/her/hers.
