About

I have a deep passion for helping people find liberation from problems that bring them to therapy. Understanding why we do things the way we do them is critical to growth, change and healing. I ground my work in warmth, compassion, authenticity and an understanding of how thoughts and emotions relate to neuro/physiological processes, as well as how past experiences inform current beliefs, thoughts, feelings and behaviors. My aim is to help you gain clarity into underlying causes of problems, provide strategies for coping and support you in taking risks and trying new ways of being, to live a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
I work with individuals, couples, families and groups on a wide variety of issues and concerns, including but not limited to: LGBTQIA+-related issues, PTSD and trauma, anxiety and depression, unsatisfying relationships, overwhelming emotions, self-esteem and identity issues, sexual concerns, family discord, life transitions and career and work challenges.
As a queer identified therapist, my experience finding my own sense of self-acceptance heavily informs the way I practice. While not all therapists are the right fit for all clients, I do my best to align my practice to the unique needs of each client. While my technique varies, my style is always grounded in warmth, authenticity, compassion and humor.
