My particular areas of interest include surviving the trauma of interpersonal, sexual, and/or political violence; negotiating a lesbian/ gay/ bisexual/ transgender/ queer identity; and the impact of stigma on mental and physical well-being.
I believe there are many ways to bring about change, and work collaboratively with clients to identify the ways that will work best for them. My approach to therapy is integrative, incorporating relational, psychodynamic and strengths-based perspectives, as well as cognitive-behavioral and mindfulness-based interventions. I am committed to understanding clients within their cultural contexts, and pay close attention to the impact of ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation and, when relevant, religion on development and identity.

Historically, I’ve worked with adolescents in the areas of anxiety, gender dysphoria, trauma and mood disorders.
If I’ve learned anything in my last 15 years of working with couples, adolescents and families, it’s that we are all evolving, always. I suspect that’s why you’re on this page, looking for a therapist – to improve your relationships, your life, or something related to your ability to function in the world. With me, you will find a companion with whom to do so, someone to assertively, but empathically, help you navigate through life’s complex scenarios, and who will aim to help you make the changes you want to see in your life.

My approach to therapy centers on building a trusting relationship with the individuals I work with. I recognize that entering in to therapy can be a vulnerable and challenging experience – to speak to a stranger about your thoughts, feelings, fears, and dreams. First and foremost, I strive to create a space that feels grounding, safe, and compassionate. From this space is where I believe individuals can tap in to their inner wisdom, challenge themselves, explore their depth of mind and achieve a greater sense of understanding and peace.

Psychotherapy has always been for those who are ready to experience healing. Along with alleviating symptoms, my approach is most effective for individuals who are seeking a deeper understanding of underlying causes and who strive for personal growth. Together, we explore the root of current feelings that led things astray. We can gain insight into self-awareness, understand our behavioral patterns, build resilience, and develop better coping mechanisms. Doing so empowers us to reach emotional maturity and enable more fulfilling relationships.
