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.

Therapy can help you free up the “stuck” places in your life, the ways of relating to yourself and others that can feel self-defeating, limiting or out of your control. These ways can lead to distress that may come in many forms: anxiety, anger, emptiness, detachment. Yet these experiences are not only a source of suffering, they are also a message that speaks to desires, passions, conflicts, and pain. Together we work to understand all this and place it in the context of where you come from and the world you live in now.

I believe every person has inner wisdom and the capacity for fulfillment in life. However, challenging events in the far or recent past can make this wisdom hard to access, or, at times, even imagine. Instead, you may experience anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, or feelings of chronic stress. Using a collaborative, integrative approach I help you connect with your strengths, develop practical coping skills, and gain deep self-understanding and acceptance. In this way you can free yourself from self-limiting patterns and become more of who you want to be in your life.
