*Yes, I am gay :)* I believe that therapy is for everyone, because everyone deserves this sacred space to look into the mirror and see themselves. Sometimes the reflection isn’t pretty. Sometimes there are things we wish we didn’t see. However, witnessing and recognizing the pain and sadness is the first part of moving through it. That’s where the therapist comes in, to stand by patiently and point out the behaviors, beliefs, thoughts, and feelings that are causing us pain. They are the person who helps us shed everything that is holding us back so that we can finally become the person we always knew we could be.

We might be a good fit if you’re feeling stuck or as if you’re going through the motions, feeling anxious or depressed about everyday life, identify as LGBTQ + and want support in your identity or relationships, or if you’re ready to start healing from past trauma.
Showing up as your authentic self in the world can be scary. Will I be accepted? Why am I the way that I am? What are these feelings I’m experiencing, and can I trust them? I provide a safe, non-judgmental space for you to explore and process all of these questions and more.

I specialize in working with LGBTQIA clients but I work with many heterosexual clients as well.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor 20 years of experience working both as a therapist and doing community-based crisis intervention. I enjoy helping clients to maximize their potential by focusing upon their strengths and past successes. I believe that therapy is a cooperative endeavor that should assist the client in discovering his/her/their own abilities and coping strategies. I relish the opportunity to support clients through trying situations and to help them to process grief. I have spoken at conferences on HIV/AIDS, work with LGBTQIA clients, and other topics. I served on the HIV service funding Planning Council.

I have 25 years of experience in mental health, working in a Cognitive Behavioral framework with clients dealing with a variety of issues including: depression/anxiety, LGBT issues, codependency, relationship issues and religious/spiritual issues.
If you are exploring the option of therapy, you may have already made attempts to improve your situation on your own. You may feel depressed, anxious or lack assertiveness. Though you desire to make a change, you may be skeptical about the idea of counseling. You may also feel that finding a therapist who listens without judgment and who balances honest feedback with empathy, is a confusing and difficult task. If this describes your situation, I hope that I might have the opportunity to speak with you about a practical strategy to bring about the change you desire.

As a transgender therapist, one of my passions is working with clients who identify as part of the LGBTQIA + population. I enjoy collaborating with individuals who are exploring their gender and/or sexual identities and hope to offer guidance and compassion as they let go of any residual societal expectations. I have undergone the entire process of hormones, top surgery, and bottom surgeries and I am open with my clients about my experiences as we work to decrease their gender dysphoria and move toward the eventual goal of gender euphoria.

Therapy is a partnership between the client and the therapist, and I feel honored when I am allowed to walk the path towards hope, empowerment and healing with another individual. You deserve someone who sees you, and will listen with an empathetic and non-judgmental ear. Life itself can be a struggle at times, and part of my role is to help you to recognize your strengths and assist you with concrete tools. For Black and Brown folks, as well as the LGBTQIA community, the stress can be overwhelming. It is ok, and at times necessary, to have that safe place, and safe person to hear you out. You are worth it!

In addition to traditional behavioral techniques, I specialize in a strengths-based approach to counseling. I work with clients of all genders and sexual orientations, with a special interest in LGBTQ + concerns. As an individual in recovery myself, I also have a personal interest in working with individuals impacted by addiction. As well as working with the trials and tribulations of the addiction itself, I work with the Client to teach how to identify, and address, the underlying stressors to their addiction. I believe in the strength of personal empowerment as I partner with others to achieve their fullest potential.

I am a queer -identifying therapist, who believes in equitable human rights for all. I hold strongly, that we are all so much more than our brain, and that an integrative, holistic, and embodied approach is the pathway to self-awareness, understanding, growth, and healing. Anchoring in curiosity and Internal Family Systems (IFS) also known as “parts work”, I will help you come to understand the many parts of you, that make you, you: How these parts work in harmony and opposition, and ultimately, how these parts came to be as means of finding clarity, confidence, and courage. My hope is to help you tap into your truest Self.

One important mission for me is to provide lesbian , gay , bisexual , transgender , and queer communities an affirming therapeutic environment where one's sexual orientation and gender identity are understood and supported, free from the judgment that homosexual, bisexual or transgender experiences are pathological.
As a licensed clinical psychologist, I administer, interpret, and prepare culturally sensitive reports based on psychological test data. Cultural considerations play a crucial role in understanding an individual’s beliefs, learning styles, educational attainment, and values and which provide a foundation for her or his pursue of happiness, attainment of career success, and development of a sense of purpose and situatedness. I conduct aptitude and achievement evaluations, assessments to evaluate an individual’s intellectual and emotional intelligence, assessments to evaluate an individual’s personality and social functioning.

My practice is LGBTQ + celebratory and welcoming of all identities and expressions.
You face unique challenges and feel alone in sorting through all life throws at you. Constant demands pull you in every direction, leaving you feeling inadequate; as if you’ve lost you own voice and vision for what you want out of your relationships, life, and future. Maybe it feels like a struggle to make a meaningful connection, a decision, or time to focus on your own well-being. You’re left feeling stuck and unsure of how to move forward. You want your relationships to be a place for support and understanding. You want to have balance, peace and stability.

My practice is explicitly queer and trans -affirming, sex-positive, pro-abortion, and feminist.
I work with individuals on a variety of different issues directly impacting their lives: pregnancy, abortion, sexuality, gender identity, relationships, and the intersection of these experiences with religion/spirituality. The things we most need to talk about are often the things that make us uncomfortable, challenge our worldview, or are deemed “socially unacceptable”. Exploring these issues and our feelings in a safe environment expands our horizons and helps us to better understand ourselves and the world around us. Learning allows us to grow and develop as human beings. Personal growth can help us heal.
