I also teach seminars and doctoral level courses on topics including: LGBTQ mental health, gender dysphoria and evidence-based/integrative psychotherapy.
Psychotherapy is an intimate collaboration in self-discovery, problem-solving & relief of suffering. My aim is to meet you where you’re at, beginning from where you are — depressed, anxious, isolated or lost. Together, we’ll winnow these obstacles to uncover fears/outgrown narratives separating you from your goals. I’ll offer feedback and invite yours fully; looking at our relationship deepens a mutual understanding and sheds light on your other relationships. When the fit is right, a safe and meaningful therapeutic connection supports symptom relief, fosters growth, self-esteem, and helps us (re)claim our identities.

I work with adolescents and adults on a wide range of challenges from general counseling and adjustment issues (feeling "stuck") to more clinical issues such as depression, anxiety, trauma and sexual issues. I focus on LGBT clients, particularly in the area of transgender identity, but have a diverse client base overall. I have experience working with clients that have issues related to polyamory, the kink community, and navigating these issues within relationships. I also have interns and supervisees that can see sliding scale clients from various populations.

I welcome clients of all backgrounds and identities with a focus on working with the LGBT community, specifically gay men and trans folks at all stages of their personal/ sexual identity exploration. When we work together you can expect to see a mix of the following: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to challenge negative automatic thoughts, good for anxiety and depression. A psychodynamic approach which looks at family development, past and present relationships. Or Gestalt/ parts work, which could take the form of role plays with others, or conversations with our childhood selves.

I work with people who have engaged active lives who find themselves troubled, or at an impasse. You may want to move forward and notice inhibitions holding you back. You struggle with procrastination or anxiety. You may have trouble making big decisions or find it difficult to get what you want. Perhaps you question your relationships with others, or you fight with yourself. Maybe you notice, no matter what you do you feel dissatisfied or even depressed. You long to feel free and energized yet you don't know how to get to that sweet spot. Speaking your words, words you may not have said aloud before, takes courage.

Throughout life we encounter a variety of ways which we have been holding ourselves back, feeling stuck, repeating patterns. I want to help you thrive. You might feel that you're not fully present in your day to day life. You might begin to experience increased feelings of distress about your state of being, a wish to change, a wish to enhance your skills in relationships, or an urge to expand your sense of potential. Maybe it's a wish to feel whole rather than a bundle of contradictions, a yearning for transcendence or for surrender of a sense of falseness to our lives.

Starting therapy can be intimidating and finding a therapist you click with can seem daunting. The success of these relationships is more than just the sum of a therapist’s qualifications and credentials. Therapy is built on trust. The difficulties we find in our relationships and in life itself, can be scary to confront alone, but having an ally who we trust can give us the courage to face them and the ability to resolve them. I prioritize compassion and non-judgement, allowing us to co-create a safe space for vulnerability, self-exploration, and the cultivation of a fuller, and more authentic life.

I work with clients to build insight and skills that help to clarify challenges and maximize joy. Whether you're transitioning into a different phase of life or feeling stuck (hello, pandemic!), I will meet you there with curiosity and compassion. Together, we'll use a variety of techniques to identify both the barriers and the opportunities to lead the kind of life you want. While there is great strength in practicing healthy coping, self-care, and positive self-talk, I know that this is often much easier said than done! Sometimes we just need help developing, prioritizing and applying these skills and awareness in our daily lives.
