I support those who identify as intersex, lesbian , gay , bisexual , non-monogamous, transgender , GNC/gender non-conforming, nonbinary or gender fluid, as well as their partners, family and friends.
Do you identify as LGBTQIA +? Is your relationship or family struggling? Do you have a child or family member who has recently come out? I would like to support you in looking at the concerns that are renting space in your thoughts and spirit. I can help you sort out your feelings, thoughts and choices in deciding what, if anything, you may wish to do. I am comfortable assisting with individual or couples work, child or adult, parenting, family struggles, anxiety/depression, gender identity/fluidity, polyamory/ethical non-monogamy, and/or navigating any medical or social/emotional journeys related to intersex conditions.

I am only accepting testing clients at this time. Throughout life, many of us will experience some sort of emotional issue. Some we can handle on our own, and others we may want to explore on a deeper level with a specialist. I look forward to working with those who are brave enough to face these issues head on, and to explore some of the underlying reasons why these issues have manifested. I specialize in trauma, PTSD, anxiety, yoga therapy, bariatric evals, LGBTQ concerns, adjustment disorders, as well as testing and assessment (ADHD and PTSD Screenings, neuropsychological and psychological/personality testing with report).

Imagine being seen as a person, and not as a set of behaviors? My role as a therapist is about creating an environment where you are accepted for who you are , free of evaluation and judgement. As a client this allows for freedom to share your thoughts and feelings, and to cultivate your personal resources within to help yourself. Our work together focuses upon identifying and ACCEPTING your many positive attributes as well as the negative beliefs you may cling to about yourself, and those around you. When you are encouraged to think freely and creatively without criticism ...there is hope.

Currently accepting new clients - I believe that each of us possesses the power and wisdom to work through the difficult parts of life - it's just a matter of accessing those abilities. Counseling offers a space to tap into that wisdom and power by working with the aspects of life that are most challenging. Change, grief, anxiety, depression, trauma, even life’s questions and personal growth can be difficult to navigate alone. However, you don’t have to! I am here to help clients evaluate mental health concerns, identify the purpose of our time together, and support each individual in achieving their goals.

I believe that every person has the potential to create positive change in their life. Often many things get in way to achieve those goals, such trauma, depression, anxiety and fear. Far too often we struggle internally and not knowing where to turn. When life gets hard it is always wonderful to have someone there to help walk alongside with you through the hardships in life. My goal is to make this therapeutic experience as pleasing and positive for you. I am here to guide you through those hard patches along the way based on your needs.

I work with individuals and couples whose lives have been interrupted by depression, anxiety, mourning, and trauma. Psychotherapy, like pastoral care and psychoanlysis, is "soul work" - self expression in the presence of a trusted friend and guide. In this safe space of the therapeutic relationship, thoughts and feelings, dreams and fantasies, desires and fears are given voice -- loud and clear, and without judgment. Authentic verbal and emotional expression is transformative. As dysfunctional patterns of thought and behavior become clear, as shattered parts of the self are recognized and linked, a new wholeness is achieved which offers the courage to change and the joy of freedom.

It is not always easy to make the decision to reach out for help, but it can make all the difference in your life. In our personal efforts to find solutions to issues we are faced with, we can find ourselves repeating patterns over and over that keep us stuck and feeling isolated despite our many efforts to improve our situation. Connecting with a skilled therapist can help you to move beyond your struggles, move beyond repeating patterns and approach life in a different, more meaningful and effective way.
