While the focus of my practice and orientation is gender affirming and non-pathologizing with regards to queer and transgender issues, I welcome individuals of all gender identities and orientations.
Looking for a therapist, and particularly a queer and trans affirming therapist, can be a difficult and often complex process. We want someone who will understand our needs and our background, help us grow and develop new skills, and will support us in making sense of something that remains unsettling, perhaps years after a trauma or thought pattern first emerged.

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.

I spearheaded a bi-annual transgender conference for clinicians.
I believe people come to therapy because something isn't working for them. They need someone to listen to their story, hear the deeper meanings and make meaningful connections for them. They may be depressed over a relationship, experiencing a loss of self esteem, mourning a loved, seeking a deeper meaning in life, or becoming aware of a past trauma. Sharing ones concerns with an experienced therapist can help connect past history to the present allowing one to gain meaningful insights into ones life. Therapy is a place to share, unburden and grow toward the fulfillment one longs for.

I have expertise in Relationship issues, working with Sexuality and Gender Identity( Transgender ) , Stress/anxiety and depressive disorders, Addictions, and 'Life Transitions' and challenges.
Psychotherapy lets people be their most 'authentic' selves and live at their highest potential; it also helps them understand barriers to optimal living. Expecting that you have all the answers is not realistic, and entering therapy is a helpful step to deepening understanding, resolving problematic relational patterns and simply making changes. Also,Therapy need not be a 'lifelong process'. I have a proven track record working with people achieving results. My treatment approach combines a Relational psychodynamic frame with goal-focused techniques. I tend to work very interactively with clients relationally, while also allowing abundant space for clients their own insights and self-reflection.
