Thanks to COVID, I'm working only via telehealth which reduces your commute time. If you're looking for a seasoned and experienced therapist, reach out, we can consult and see if working with me is useful to you. My clients tend to be working on being awake and aware of and attuned to the complexity of our culture today. I work with issues of alternative sexuality, gender dysphoria, relationships in all forms including relationships that are kink friendly and/or poly.

**Waitlist Currently** I am highly experienced with those who find themselves stuck in unproductive or damaging patterns of thinking or actions and have been unable to move forward, even with other professional help. The feedback I receive from fellow providers and clients is that I have a high success rate of treatment and recovery. I believe that outpatient psychotherapy is a process of collaboration that provides a stable, supportive environment for achieving psychological wellness. Each of us are unique and the best expert on the stressors in our daily life.

I have a particular expertise in helping couples with issues such as infidelity, arguments, lack of communication and connection and dwindling sexual expression.

Depression, anxiety, trauma, grief and other symptoms can take away the ability to enjoy life, and make it difficult to remain socially connected and maintain good interpersonal relationships. Life circumstances, mental or physical illness, coping with transitions, and unexpected events increase stress, and contribute to feeling overwhelmed and helpless. I will work to help you find a way through these painful experiences, reduce unwanted symptoms, and improve quality of life. If you are struggling with painful symptoms or situation, call me today and we can begin working on the life you want to be living.

Emotions and relationships are hard. But, why? Your brain wants you to protect yourself/selves from "threats" in ways that cause problems and suffering for you or your relationship. Your self-protection is always running in the background. If you want to feel better you can understand what causes your need for protection and how to overcome it. Working to feel more in touch with your desires and needs; while lowering worry leads to a better life. I'm an individual and couples therapist who knows how to guide you toward new patterns of relating. I welcome all races, sexual orientations and expression, and religions in my practice.

A particular focus is helping people in crisis manage and make meaning from difficulties. My approach to therapy is supportive, relational, and client-centered, with a focus on how things manifest themselves in the here and now. More than anything, I try to create a safe space for tuning in to feelings, finding balance, healing, and working on change.

Everyone gets “stuck” in harmful patterns of thought, attention, behavior, and emotions sometimes. Working together can help you learn to slow down, see with more acceptance, curiosity, and compassion, and adopt new ways of being which support greater aliveness, connectedness, and purpose. I approach therapy with a warm and collaborative attitude, holding a strong belief in your strengths, potential, and innate wisdom.

Struggling with self-criticism, a life out-of-balance, or the past taking up too much of your present can feel lonely. Often the coping strategies that helped us survive can develop into problems themselves and figuring out the best way forward can feel overwhelming. I am honored to work alongside individuals as they discover their inner strengths and develop new, effective strategies to experience and navigate life. I work to foster self-compassion and self-worth in my practice.

Sometimes life creates change when we aren't ready. You may find that life transitions have left you feeling differently than you expected, or you're discovering things about yourself that you aren't sure what to do with. Sometimes loved ones change in ways that challenge us, and sometimes we grow and hope our loved ones will grow with us. Sometimes LGBTQIA+ identities have specific needs, particularly for couples and families adjusting to newly expressed identities and searching for a healthy, supportive dynamic. Unfortunately, coping with these unexpected changes usually isn't a smooth, easy, or pretty process.

In therapy, we’ll foster opportunities for you to untangle your authentic voice from the expectations of others and society. I work with people with identities that do not align with the dominant culture. These identities are usually in regard to gender, sexuality, race, body size, neurodiversity, ableness, and spirituality. In addition to this, I support people who are Aromantic or are in diverse partnerships such as Ethical Non-Monogamy, or alternative relationships informed by BDSM or Kink . My approach is anti-oppressive, meaning we will explore how your experiences with different forms of oppression affect you personally.
