For the past 4 decades plus, I have specialized in LGBTQ issues. I currently focus on gender identity issues and assist my transgender clients with navigating their often challenging journeys. As an "out" cisgender lesbian practitioner, I strive to help my LGBTQ clients travel from a place of shame to pride. Much of our work centers on self- esteem and the ways in which homophobia and transphobia impact so many areas of our lives-including family, career, and our intimate relationships. I love animals and also do veterinary counseling and consulting. My style is interactive and casual. I highly value your confidentiality.

I am LGBTQA + friendly, and comfortable with all religious expressions or personal spiritualities.
When we have suffered a traumatic experience, we feel broken and believe our safe, comfortable world has been shattered forever. The event does alter our world, but we are not broken…we are survivors. Although our perception of the world has changed around us, we can cultivate the skills we need to meet the challenges of this new world. You hold the key to this transformation. My job is to help guide you to the answers you already have inside you, no matter the trauma…childhood abuse, military, first responder, civilian, sexual assault, etc., you can become the very best version of yourself and take charge of your own future.

I specialize in trauma, race based trauma, anxiety, depression, grief, low self-esteem, and other relationship related challenges, such as interracial, gender and transgender conflicts.
All clients are unique as are all therapists. Research has shown that clients benefit the most from therapy, when there is a strong match between client and therapist. I encourage my clients ability to unpack and explore their worldview in a safe place. I am sensitive, to how considering new perspectives can be both scary and challenging. Courageously re-framing severe distress as a logical, biological and psychological response to environmental conditions, guides my practice. I work with adolescents, adults, individuals and families.

Hello! I am located in Atlanta, Georgia, but provide telehealth in MD, VA, FL, NC, and MA. I specialize in working with children, teens, families, and adult individuals who have difficulty with anxiety, depression, ADHD, emotional regulation, behavioral concerns, or have experienced trauma. I also have extensive experience supporting the adoption triad, and LGBTQ + youth, families, and individuals. Rather than have a “one size fits all” perspective, I use a blend of treatment approaches to meet each client’s individual needs including play therapy, mindfulness and body-based work, CBT, ERP, attachment and trauma-informed approaches.

Relationships and intimacy require work and attention; I’d like to help you with that work, building a road to a more fulfilled future. I am an experienced Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in private practice. I work with the LGBTQIA + community and people, (individuals, two or more), interested in learning more about developing stronger emotional connections with themselves and their partner(s), exploring ethical non-monogamy and kink, stimulating love and desire, building communication skills around sex and intimacy, and exploring sexual confidence, eroticism, and self-esteem.

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.

My areas of special interest are attachment and adoption issues; social-emotional challenges of giftedness; LGBT / questioning youth, and the adult legacy of difficult childhoods.
You have decided that something in your life needs to change: perhaps chronic stress or emotional pain, confusing behaviors or needs in your child, or your way of dealing with ongoing family issues. Therapy is a collaborative process in which I facilitate these changes. I have significant experience with issues around giftedness and its social-emotional challenges, anxiety, trauma, attachment, and adoption. I treat all clients with respect, interest, and openness. I am a relaxed, approachable person who feels privileged to work at a job I love with children and adults who teach and inspire me with their courage.

Feeling listened to with care, respect, and curiosity helps you gain clarity and self-understanding. Patients tell me they feel stronger and more confident through our work, and their relationships and careers often show the benefits. Together, we can examine and explore your life. We can untangle your strengths, conflicts and questions. We can identify things you keep doing even though they're not working for you. When we find issues interfering with your goals, passions, or relationships, we can work together toward change. More info at tppsych.com

Could your eyes use a break from screen time? Would outdoor therapy help you reset your week? As a Certified Nature-Informed therapist, I integrate nature-based therapeutic methods into my work with clients. This approach supports rejuvenation through connecting with the present moment and with the senses in the natural world. Majority of sessions are held walking and/or sitting at parks and on trails in Takoma Park. Pushing beyond traditional confines of a physical counseling office or telehealth, together we can utilize space and time in nature to help work through stressors, anxieties, and life transitions.

My work is built on the belief that people naturally want to heal and grow; sometimes we just need someone to help us channel those instincts for change. We need a space to hear our thoughts outside of our heads, a space to observe and examine our feelings and what we hold true about ourselves. You are the expert in your life, and the question I ask myself as a therapist is how can I provide a space and relationship that you can use for personal growth. Some of the most important values that I focus on bringing to that relationship are trust, openness, and curiosity.

It can be hard to change our habits and ways of relating with ourselves and with others even when old patterns are causing significant emotional pain. For real change to take place, something beyond motivation and a commitment to change is often needed. What can make a real difference involves finding a receptive person and an accepting environment that fosters a deeper understanding of one's self. I strive to provide such a receptive and safe environment to my clients with the hope that they feel listened to, understood, and recognized in their desires to get to know themselves, to connect with others and to feel alive in the world

My goal as a therapist is to support clients in making meaning and finding peace. My approach may involve anything from us working together to soothe your anxiety, to sorting through unspeakable trauma. I aim to create a space that is warm and devoid of judgement. I will walk beside you and explore with you, and other than the occasional gentle nudge, I won’t push you where you aren’t ready to go.

I believe that people enter psychotherapy because the ways in which they have been managing their pain are no longer working, they have become disconnected from their true sense of self, and no longer feel authentic. My goal as a therapist is to help you to claim a deeper level of self-understanding, genuine intimacy with others, and a sense of purpose and agency in life. Change can be difficult simply because we fear the unknown. A relationship with a therapist can provide a place of acceptance and safety from which to explore new ways of thinking and behaving.
