I have extensive experience providing therapy to LGBTQ+ folks with particular expertise in working with transgender and non-binary people, working on issues of gender exploration, self-acceptance, and navigation of life changes, as well as issues of depression, anxiety, and trauma.
In a world of often overwhelming expectations and negative messages about who we are or who we can be, it is not unusual to become depressed, anxious, or disconnected. We can become traumatized by major life events or even the repeated exposure to discrimination or silencing of our voices and senses of worth. Therapy offers a space to slow down and come further into the wisdom of our present awareness. I work well with people who want to deepen their insight into themselves and what causes them pain or gets in their way--as well as what brings meaning, joy, and healing.

Hello! My specialty area is consulting with parents & family members of transgender , non-binary, or gender questioning youth. I founded and directed Harbor Camps for transgender youth and was the CEO for 13 years. I have worked with thousands of trans & non-binary youth and their families, and I am now doing consulting with parents to help move them on their journey toward understanding and acceptance. I work with parents/extended family members at their own pace and take time to understand their family and meet them where they are. I provide both short-term and long-term consulting.

I specialize in working with adolescent clients (gay, lesbian, straight, questioning and transgender ), which includes providing support and guidance to their parents.
Psychotherapy offers us the opportunity to have the support we need to examine those areas of our lives we find painful, confusing, and/or challenging. It is common for all of us from time to time to feel "stuck" in our lives, or faced with problems that we cannot seem to overcome. My goal is to help my clients access their internal and interpersonal resources in ways that are healing and help them gain a greater sense of personal agency in their lives. We may achieve this by exploring the past, looking at the present, or a combination of both.

I have extensive experience working with lesbian, queer-identified, transgender and gender expansive folks, individuals living with HIV/AIDS, and those exploring their relationship to sexuality, kink, and gender.
With each of my clients, I cultivate a compassionate, non-judgmental, and supportive environment. I believe that the therapeutic relationship provides a safe space for identity exploration, so that you can more fully embody your truth in your day-to-day life. While a sense of progress is integral to the therapeutic journey, we will create a personalized understanding of what growth looks like for you, rather than settling for more prescriptive goals. As a relational therapist, I help people foster deeper understanding and self-awareness, overcome unhelpful and defeating patterns, and build self-esteem.

JUNE 2022: Currently accepting individuals for psychodynamically informed, attachment-oriented, weekly therapy or couples for weekly EFT-based couples therapy (Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy). EFT-based couples therapy seeks to help couples identify the interactional patterns that keep couples disconnected. In understanding these patterns, we work to help partners learn and understand their habitual protective behaviors, their partner's protective behaviors, and to practice NEW ways of responding to one's self and one's partner.

Managing life’s challenges can overwhelm each of us. Whether juggling typical ups and downs or coping with loss, trauma, major upset or crisis, there are times we need compassion, an advocate, a fellow strategist or just someone to listen. Our relationship to ourselves, family, career, or life changes can sometimes seem out of control, leading to depression, anxiety or isolation. Therapy is a tool designed to help manage life’s challenges and bring clarity, perspective and a sense of well-being.

Rather than using a prescribed model of treatment, I work from an attuned and responsive approach to the present moment. As all of us have a tendency to get lost in a narrative or storyline, I invite clients to slow down and tune into their direct experience of life outside of the conceptual world—the raging emotions in the body, the rhythmic flow of one’s breath, the coming and going of thoughts, the feeling of shaky vulnerability, the rage, the loneliness—honoring it all as sacred portals of possibility.

My ideal client is someone who is open to using the creative process to give visual shape to thoughts, feelings and experiences that may be difficult to put into words. Collaboratively, we can identify goals and use visual art as well as talk therapy to promote insight, development of coping strategies, and behavior and stress management. As a non-binary therapist, shared experiences allow us to establish a trusting therapeutic relationship as we connect with someone who understands our unique needs in a way that enables growth through self-expression, self-awareness, and self-empowerment.

Are you a queer or trans person feeling stuck or disconnected and looking for support with your relationships, sexuality, or gender? For many of us, navigating intimacy and seeking purpose in our lives can bring up the legacies of shame, estrangement, and trauma, and make us feel anxious, overwhelmed, lonely, or empty—especially in a time of increasing uncertainty, heightened injustice, and institutional failures. But as queer people we’re also highly adaptive and resilient. In my practice, I help clients build on this strength so they can brave tough moments, heal, and find a greater sense of authenticity and trust in themselves.

At this time, unfortunately I am not taking new clients. I hope to have increased availability in the fall. I believe the most important aspect in therapy is the relationship between the client and the therapist. I take a collaborative approach and have a warm, engaging style. My goal is to help clients be their most authentic selves and feel more connected in their lives. Many people struggle because of traumas, losses, poor self-esteem, and difficulties with life transitions. We can work together to repair and heal old wounds, using a combination of approaches tailored to your needs.

Psychotherapy is a co-created experience between the therapist and client. For over 15 years I have had the honor of working with people who feel stuck in their lives, whether it be their jobs, their relationships, or perhaps in some part of their identity. By bringing non-judgmental curiosity to our work together, it is my goal to create a safe and welcoming space within which we can explore the patterns of behavior that may not be serving their purpose anymore. I enjoy working with teens and adults, providing them with support to be their most authentic selves.
