As a psychologist, I believe that the most important factors in therapy are a good fit for the client and a working relationship where clients feel heard and understood. In working with clients, I start with learning about what a person's life looks like, both what is working and what clients would like to change. I often describe the work as a client and myself examining the different sides of an issue together, and that it is the client who decides what to do with the information.

I recognize that my clients have knowledge and expertise about their lives and their current struggles and see my role as providing an additional perspective into the room. I strive to create a collaborative and respectful working relationship focused on the goals that my clients bring with them.

My main area of professional focus includes working with individuals around issues of identity development, specifically in the areas of sexuality and gender identity. Additional areas of clinical interest include working with trauma survivors, exploring meaning making, and the development of parenting and creation of family within queer relationships.
