I also see parents of transgender children, another area of lived experience in which I bring a unique understanding and compassion to parents in their efforts of supporting their child.
Daily life brings plenty of stresses, but most of us manage to function pretty well in spite of them. Sometimes, however, the stresses become more than we can handle, making us feel nervous, sad or angry. We might argue more with loved ones, have trouble sleeping or difficulty concentrating. Physical problems might show up like headaches or stomach complaints. If all this weren't enough, we might self-medicate by doing things like over-eating, excessive drinking or shopping. While these activities are actually attempts to self-comfort, a more productive way to gain relief when life gets out of control is to seek therapy.

As a pastoral psychotherapist and theologian--who also happens to be queer and transgender--I am deeply connected to my faith that leans towards thoughts in Christian mysticism.
Sudden and dramatic life transitions can rock our world, causing us to frequently feel disoriented and unsettled. Whether such moments are encountered through loss of a loved one, divorce, trauma, substance recovery or something equally profound, ones faith, meaning, purpose, and direction is often called on as a means to sustain us. I welcome the opportunity to work with you to heuristically discover and strengthen your inner-self and potentiality.

Diet culture and disordered eating are everywhere around us, and the journey towards body neutrality and acceptance and mindful, intuitive eating definitely takes support and time. We can also find ourselves living pressured, stressful lives that we don’t truly enjoy in order to please others, or to fit external standards. I have worked with both adolescents and adults with eating disorders. I previously served as a clinical director for an outpatient eating disorder treatment center in the San Francisco Bay area, and have also worked in residential treatment settings.

Therapy is an amazing placebo. You do not NEED a therapist to learn, transform, and grow your awareness of yourself. I firmly believe whatever it is you are seeking to learn, change, or make peace with, you can do it. The benefit of working with a trained therapist who sees you, gives your sense of agency and innate wisdom the respect it deserves, and offers an outside perspective on your experience informed by evidenced-based theory and practice, is that the pace of growth is greatly accelerated.
