As a person-centered, relational, and insight-oriented therapist, I am committed to empowering and affirming my clients in their pursuit of self-growth and meaning in life. My ideal clients are those who desire for emotional healing, positive self-esteem, mental clarity, healthy relationships, and building authenticity and balance in life. Using our relationship as a vehicle for change, I strive to help my clients to reflect on their past, to gain insights into their relational patterns and coping strategies, and to engage in intentional efforts in changing their lives in congruent with who they are and what they value.

I have volunteered and worked with women with cancer and with lesbians and gay men who have lost their long-term partner/spouse.
I have a laid-back style and focus on creating safe space. My approach is pretty eclectic. Although my primary work is with the LGBTQ community--I have a strong LGBT and social justice background--it is not exclusive. I enjoy working with people willing to push their boundaries and learn about themselves. I also enjoy working with people exploring all kinds of creativity. I focus on what you see as your strengths. Building on those strengths makes the most sense to me when working with you.

How do you go from feeling overwhelmed and lost to clarity and a solid sense of self? Contemplating this journey informs my work as a psychotherapist. In my experience, the single most important factor that leads to significant change is the development of a trusting client-therapist relationship. This allows trust in new possibilities,and seeing yourself differently and considering this new sense of self. I liken therapy to reorganizing heavy furniture in a room and in some cases getting rid of pieces. The furniture represents the client's view of self. With acceptance and empathic curiosity, change can begin.

My primary focus is on helping couples and individuals with sexual issues. In working with couples, I find dissatisfaction with partnered sex is often linked to deeper relationship difficulties and the two can be intertwined. In other instances, the therapeutic focus is primarily on enhancing technique and increasing desire rather than improving the relationship. I also work individually with women to eliminate barriers to sexual wellness and increase acceptance. I enjoy working with gay, lesbian, and heterosexual clients and have respect for sexual fluidity and variance in erotic interest.
