Hello! I work with teens and adults who are experiencing life transitions, relationship issues, problems of anxiety/stress, unresolved trauma or PTSD, or who feel lost or without purpose. I am particularly passionate about working with those who are questioning their sexual, gender, or relational identities; who identify as queer , trans , & poly; or who are otherwise transforming mainstream ideology through self-exploration. Through self-observation we focus on dismantling old, ineffective patterns and belief systems, healing self-trust, & restoring self-worth to grow a resilient & powerful sense of self in connection with community.

Therapy and reaching out for support is hard, especially being a part of the LGBTQ + community because of the marginalization and oppression experienced when seeking this support. I am actively working to change that narrative and provide a space where you can be 100% authentically yourself without fear or judgment. YOU are the leader in your mental health journey and you deserve to feel that way. Unpacking trauma, learning to communicate, and setting boundaries are things that I enjoy working with people on, though there are many other things.

My work strives to be trauma literate, sex/body positive, spiritually open, LGBTQ affirming, and kink/sex-worker allied.
If you find yourself saying things like, “everyone says they’re anxious but they’re still so productive, why do I feel paralyzed?” Or “laundry shouldn’t be this hard” or “I can’t believe I’ve been doom scrolling for 4 hours,” you’re definitely not alone. Maybe your house is a mess but you’re so stressed about it you can’t start cleaning. Is tolerating your partner's violations of trust becoming more confusing but establishing boundaries with them feels impossible? When you’re feeling hopeless, helpless, or just out of control, therapy can provide understanding and meaningful change for your life.

Prior to entering private practice, I worked for over 20 years in outpatient and inpatient mental health settings providing therapy to a diverse population. I specialize in working with the LGBTQIA + community, and often work with clients on exploring their identity. In particular, working with clients who have experienced trauma, including sexual abuse, and how this intersects with the way they see themselves, and their overall sense of self-worth. I also have over 15 years experience working with those suffering from depression, anxiety and severe mental illness.

I also work with the LGBTQ community.
Do you, your boyfriends, girlfriends, spouses, or family members disagree about too many things, communication styles, control issues, do you argue too often? Do you struggle with low self-esteem, self-doubt, depression, and anxiety? Perhaps you, a friend or family member drink too much or have a drug problem, financial inequities, impatience, short temper, or anger management issues. Do you feel manipulated or coerced or that your wishes or your feelings are discounted and rejected by others? Are there too many upsets in your own day or do others make your days more complicated?

I work with individuals to help them increase self-awareness and lead happier lives. My unique background makes me different than most therapists. In addition to being a licensed therapist, I have a PhD in Philosophy. As a therapist and life coach, I help individuals struggling with relationships, codependency, sexual compulsivity, and substance/alcohol abuse. I also work with adult children of alcoholics, those who grew up in families where emotional chaos and parent addiction may be affecting their adult relationships. In addition, I work with gay individuals and couples.

I best support women, including LGBTQ + and BIPOC folks, struggling with anxiety and the emotional effects of people-pleasing or perfectionism.

Whether you've been impacted by trauma or grew up feeling excess responsibility for others, I'm committed to long-term work with an emphasis on self-esteem, identity, and integration.

Each of us holds within ourselves tremendous potential and an innate knowing of just what we need. I look at many symptoms as a creative, adaptive response to our environment that should be respected as such. Through positive connection with others, we can learn new ways of relating to our bodies, our spirits, and our world. I use a collaborative approach to treatment, with the belief that without your perspective and input, therapy will not be nearly as beneficial.

I work exclusively with couples who are seeking a secure relationship. Relationships are complex for so many reasons, but often not the reasons you think. Together we figure out what gets in the way of you having a relationship that is based on security and true collaboration. "Peace between countries must rest on the solid foundation of love between individuals." said Mahatma Gandhi. Many couples I meet in my office lack the solid foundation to build a peaceful, vital relationship. Without a secure base and solid structure, partners can't relax and be themselves. A secure relationship both grounds and develops each partner.
