Therapy can be a really helpful way to address challenges in life. My approach to therapy is warm and collaborative. We’ll work together to figure out a process that works for you. I use a variety of therapeutic approaches and my priority is to make sure you feel heard, understood, and accepted. I have a particular interest in working with queer, transgender, and nonbinary children and adults. I’m also invested in working with immigrants, third culture kids, and those exploring questions of cultural identity.

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.

Areas of Specialization: * Depression * Anxiety * Transgender/Gender Identity Issues * Academic/Family/Job Stress * Career Development * Life Transitions(chosen and unexpected) * Queer/Gay, Lesbian, and Bisexual Identity * PTSD/Trauma Recovery * Addictions * Communication and Assertiveness Training * Spiritual Concerns * Relationship Problems.
I bring a warm and interactive style to my psychotherapeutic practice, which can best be described as "eclectic," as I believe that not one type of therapy is right for everyone. Pulling from psychodynamic (insight-oriented) psychotherapy, cognitive-behavioral techniques, mindfulness/meditation, and somatics (the integration of body/mind/spirit), I will tailor my practice to your individual needs depending on the particular issues you would like to address in therapy.

My experience has been deeply informed by extensive work with individuals holding lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer identities, immigrants, people of color, and persons with disabilities.
My practice is dedicated to helping clients deepen their capacity for self awareness and personal agency. As part of our work together I help clients explore and develop insight into unconscious processes, repetitive patterns of behavior, and relational difficulties to understand what gets in the way of living meaningfully and authentically while reaching desired goals. Drawing from psychoanalytic, relational, and mindfulness approaches, I work collaboratively with clients to facilitate a safe therapeutic space conducive to increased intimacy, curiosity, and creativity while building on strengths derived from their unique life experiences.

What is it like to be you? My approach lies in creating a meaningful relationship with my client where there is security and openness to fully explore areas of difficulty, pain, joy, and growth. Together, we can discuss and problem-solve around concerns of disconnection, anxiety and depression, trauma, identity and self-worth, and transition/loss that are impacting the quality of your life. I aim to help others cultivate greater understanding and compassion for themselves, and increase their ability to make choices and changes that reflect their core values and aspirations.

Psychological suffering exists on different levels and manifests in different ways, in psyche, body, interpersonally, socially, both consciously and unconsciously. Thankfully, there are many ways to address psychological struggle, ranging from working with symptoms that are consciously experienced to the exploration of underlying non-conscious dynamics, many of which originate during the early years of one's life and impact one's relationship with self and others. My work is social justice-informed and incorporates an understanding of how larger socio-political systems impact our lives. Facilitating empowerment is key in my work.
