For the past 4 decades plus, I have specialized in LGBTQ issues. I currently focus on gender identity issues and assist my transgender clients with navigating their often challenging journeys. As an "out" cisgender lesbian practitioner, I strive to help my LGBTQ clients travel from a place of shame to pride. Much of our work centers on self- esteem and the ways in which homophobia and transphobia impact so many areas of our lives-including family, career, and our intimate relationships. I love animals and also do veterinary counseling and consulting. My style is interactive and casual. I highly value your confidentiality.

Our relationships with others can be the source of our greatest joys and our greatest pain. I see therapy as a collaborative process where we work together to help you develop healthy, supportive, relationships - be they with partners, children, parents, friends, or co-workers. With over 25 years of experience providing individual, couple and family therapy, training family therapists, and teaching about families at the university level, I am committed to the important yet often difficult work of enhancing self-understanding and improving relationship/family functioning.

TELETHERAPY APPOINTMENTS AVAILABLE. Ideally, I want to create an environment that allows my clients to find their way, learn about themselves, and grow to be leaders in their treatment. The approaches I use give clients the ability to take the initiative, evaluate and then make a plan of action. Making the decision to enter into therapy is a challenge in itself. But in the end I want to meet the client where they are at and go from there. Where applicable I use Motivational Interviewing, mindfulness, play therapy, career/coaching and other modalities in practice.

Are you, or is your child, feeling distressed and frustrated ... do you feel stuck , prevented from meeting life's inevitable challenges? During 40 years as a psychologist, I have been generously "trained" by hundreds of individuals, families, couples, children and adolescents seen in my practice. These experiences have taught me to approach treatment holistically, giving equal attention to the psychological, biological, social and spiritual aspects of life. While respecting the importance of scientifically validated therapeutic techniques, I also appreciate the fundamental role of the therapeutic relationship - a relationship grounded in trust, respect, compassion, and (hopefully) wisdom borne of experience.

Do you feel stuck either in an unhealthy relationship, or find yourself thinking that healthy relationships are never going to happen? Do you find that you blame yourself for things that involve other people? Or do you feel like you lost a connection with yourself? Regardless of what brings you to therapy, this search is the first step towards feeling better. We all have the capacity for emotional health, but during difficult times we may lose our sense of balance. That can leave us feeling anxious, overwhelmed, sad, stressed, frustrated, or hopeless. You deserve to feel a sense of peace.
