I have life experience, but I also have worked with parents involved with the court, adoptive parents, adults and youth with ADHD, parenting skills, couples therapy, LGBTQ +, and caring for older/disabled parents or individuals.
I view therapy as a dynamic and evolving relationship. During my 30+ years working with youth and families, I’ve found my approach should be as unique as you are. You can expect me to be interactive, honest, and caring. Still, I will comfortably challenge you to talk about those issues holding you back and interfering in healing and becoming the person you want to be.

I am particularly interested in supporting families working to co-parent during/after parental separation, and LGBTQ + parents/families.
I believe that parents/caregivers are not only their child's first teachers, but often their best therapists. I seek to support parents (biological, adoptive, step, foster) and families of all types as they navigate the often-challenging work of nurturing and supporting the children in their care. I believe in helping parents to "secure their own oxygen masks before assisting others," by providing a safe space for parents to explore their own identities, values, challenges and experiences as caregivers. I am also experienced at providing practical guidance to parents facing challenging moments with their children.

Have you ever felt stuck in the same cycle over and over no matter how hard you try to break away? These type of patterns can often make it feel impossible to stay connected, be at peace, and thrive. I want you to know there is hope. Together we can explore how past patterns and trauma affect the present while building on your strengths to manifest a feeling of inner strength and freedom. I value creating an affirming therapeutic space where clients of LGBTQ + identities, kink/sex-positive practices, and polyamorous relationships are safe and welcomed.

individual therapy--marriage/couples therapy --- professors, college and graduate students ---sexual abuse --- gay / lesbian / queer community -- family of origin issues -- mood problems--personality patterns/dysfunctions .
It's hard being a person. We all struggle to some extent in fundamental areas of human life-- relationships, identity, work, destructive behaviors, the meaning of life itself. Satisfying marriage/committed relationships are a specific challenge faced by many. I work in both individual and couples therapy. There are many ways to approach human problems, including: how family of origin influences personality; one's relationship to one's thoughts and feelings; self-defeating beliefs, both conscious and unconscious; self-defeating behavior. I value thoughtfulness and compassion, working together, and recognizing your goals and ideas.

I am sex-positive and have experience with lgbtq , kink, and poly relationships.
Many times in life we find ourselves stuck in a phase of this is just how it is right now. Frequently during those phases, the only thing we can do is hang on, keep our heads above water, and wait for life to settle. Once the how it is phase comes to an end, there is commonly a new version of our life that emerges, and there is work to be done. Work that we may have never done before, challenges that seem so great that we have no idea where to begin. Luckily, you do not have to do this alone.

Hello and welcome. Healing involves a sacred trust rooted in relationship.

We will work together to explore your lived experiences, relationships with family and community, and economic and social systems that impact your story and overall wellbeing. While my work primarily focuses on trauma and its effect on the body and mind, I dedicate my practice to co-creating transformative spaces in support of BIPOC, LGBTQIA +, and gender-expansive people who navigate life in the margins.

I am a non-binary, queer therapist dedicated to upholding gender-affirming, sex-positive, and social justice values in my personal and professional lives.
Sometimes we all need somebody to genuinely meet us where we are at in life with radical acceptance and compassion for who we are and where we want to go from here. But searching for the right person to connect with can be a daunting prospect, especially if you or your loved ones have lived experiences enduring societal rejections and systematic oppression. As such, my primary goal in therapy is to cultivate an inclusive, warming environment where you can safely and freely express your authentic self, which is why you deserve to know a little about me as well.
