About

In my practice, I emphasize both change and acceptance, seeking to help you build the life you want to be living. Sometimes when individuals are in therapy, they begin to understand the causes of the problems they are experiencing while continuing to feel stuck. I focus on balancing an understanding of these external influences while supporting you with specific tools to help you to react differently. Often this work begins by focusing on dismantling the disproportionate levels of guilt individuals have internalized which blocks their ability to change.
Part of finding this balance is about recognizing how we as individuals are inclined to internalize larger cultural messages in ways that significantly impact our mental health and expressions of identity. Disengaging from these internalized messages helps you to find a path which leads out of distress.
I work with adults and adolescents with a variety of mental health issues. I also focus on working with transgender, gender variant, queer, and genderqueer individuals using ICATH standards as well as working with LGBA individuals. I also have experience working with autistic individuals and their significant others.
