In my private practice, I specialize in working with the transgender and non-binary community: adults, teens and children who identify as transgender and parents with a child or adult child who identifies as transgender or non-binary. While trans identified individuals face many of the same challenges as cisgender people, such as depression, anxiety and relationship concerns, I am also aware of the challenges unique to transgender and non-binary people and their loved ones including discrimination, stigma, rejection, and oppression.

I have experience working with adolescents and young adults and adults who identify as transgender, non-binary, or genderqueer, and youth and adults who identify anywhere along the LGBTQIA+ spectrum.
Ever feel like you don't matter? Feel lonely, disconnected and don't know where to turn? Well, you matter! Let's talk!! I have worked with adolescents and young adults for over 25 years. Often times people who identify outside the "norm" feel like they don't matter, they do! The world around you is so uncertain and at times and can be not safe. Maybe you have experienced trauma, anxiety, depression, bullying, or you just feel marginalized. You need to feel safe to talk and work through your concerns. It's exhausting to carry that burden alone. I enjoy working with adolescents and teens, but also have a good rapport with adults.

I believe therapy is a space where you can unload things that you are struggling to carry alone, develop clear insight, build greater self-compassion, and address barriers that keep you from achieving your goals. The first step in doing any one of these things is building a strong relationship with your therapist. I strive to make this possible by providing an open, judgement-free, and warm space where you can share who you are and what you are struggling to manage. I regularly work with folx age 14 and up on finding ways to manage their anxious or depressive thinking, and alleviate their stress through self-care.

With compassion, I will meet you where you are, and together, we will work toward goals that will empower you to live authentically.

I believe it is my job as a therapist to empower my clients to find their own path and truth as they understand it. In terms of theoretical orientation I would describe myself as integrative with a strong emphasis on multicultural feminist theories. How this translates into therapy is most evident in my emphasis on a collaborative approach and a goal of empowering my clients. At the same time I am engaged in continuous consideration of how multiple oppressions (sexism, racism, heterosexism, classism) in the current societal and historical context may be contributing to distress.
