"In my 27 years of experience, much of it devoted to working with the transgender community, I have come to believe healing takes place when a strong therapeutic alliance has been established. Therapy is about understanding and effecting the way you feel about yourself while learning how your behavior effects relationships with others. Being able to be vulnerable and feel safe with a therapist goes a long way. Change can - and does - take place. Be open minded and prepared to laugh, cry and everything in between."

"Most of us were taught that gender, like sexual orientation, was binary. We now know this is false. Gender non-conforming, genderqueer, non-binary, agender; gender IS fluid and exists ON a SPECTRUM. Many trans people have been afraid to embrace their true gender due to societal and familial ramifications. We are entering a new age when the need for trans people to remain in the shadows to "fit in" or "please others" is being transcended. I believe every trans person deserves a safe, well-informed and empathetic environment to consider the impacts of transphobia and the destruction it leaves in it's wake. Trans is beautiful! "

"We are born into the world ready to experience life with all of the goodness, intelligence, and inner peace inherent to our nature. And yet so often we find ourselves struggling to feel worthy, safe, and meaningfully connected. The origins of these challenges may be confusing or obvious to us. Regardless, it can be difficult to free ourselves from limiting patterns and return to a more harmonious state of being. As a therapist, I believe that a relationship with a caring, trustworthy, and attentive person can shift these patterns in ways that surprise us, allowing our potential to emerge."

"Hi! I'm glad you're here. Finding the right therapist for you can be overwhelming. 3 research-backed steps can make the process more manageable: Take 3 deep belly breaths, note profiles you are naturally drawn to, and narrow your choice to between 5-9 options. Deep breaths stimulate the vagus nerve, which turns on your "rest and digest" system (overriding your fight-flight-freeze). Relational repair work you do with your therapist has a huge impact on your outcomes, so it's crucial to pick one you can see yourself wanting to build a bond with. 7+/- 2 is how many options we can process at a time. Whatever you're going through, right"

"While I love working with women in their 20's and 30's, I am also VERY passionate about working with adolescents and their families! This is such a crucial time in our brain's development, and my goal in therapy is to assist my client's and their parents in learning how to manage the complexities of this dynamic period of life. Teenage years are a time of rapid growth and desire for autonomy. This can be very disruptive to the family system without the proper tools to manage the overwhelming emotions that adolescence is infamously known for, and unfortuantely some teens turn to unhelpful coping tools to avoid discomfort and stress.
