People seek therapy because of the challenges that come to them through times of transition. If you want to focus on healing without having to worry about a third party monitoring your personal struggles and demanding a diagnosis, I am happy to partner with you directly, creating terms that we negotiate together. Healing is likely the most important task that you'll tend to in your adult life. I will guide you in that process without pathologizing or labeling you. Becoming the fullest expression of yourself is a worthwhile and deeply personal task, not to be compromised by political systems.

Not currently accepting new clients. My goal is to support my clients by providing a safe, accepting environment for self-exploration. Through a relational and trauma-informed approach, I am committed to affirming the experiences and journeys of everyone I work with by providing the spaces necessary to work towards positive change. I specialize in work focused on gender identity, sexual orientation, and identity intersections. My practice is driven by the belief that no one should ever feel “less than" because of their gender identity/expression, sexuality, or any other attribute of their personhood.

In therapy we will build upon your own inner strength, and authentic self to process and heal any pain or psychological injuries that might be getting in your way of living a happy, healthy and fulfilling life. I believe that therapy is a collaborative process, that is, we will work together to help navigate and explore any problems or patterns in your life that may be contributing to the challenges that you face. I am not a therapist that will tell you what to do, but I will help you explore your own solutions and answers, which are within you waiting to be discovered.

*CURRENTLY OFFERING ONLINE THERAPY* The experience of human emotion is, by nature, incredibly complex. Navigating both the world around us and the world inside of us can sometimes feel overwhelming, painful, hopeless, and maybe even impossible. It is okay to feel these things and it is also okay to ask for help. Sometimes the hardest part of moving forward is finding the right person to be on that journey with you. I have a decade of experience working with individuals dealing with all kinds of personal struggles. My specialty areas include working with loved ones of addicts, trauma, grief/loss related issues, and eating disorders.

Finding an affirmative therapist can be a difficult & complex process. For many of us, living as our authentic selves can be challenging. Sometimes there are multiple barriers & difficult decisions ahead. You don’t have to navigate it all alone. Whether gender identity or sexuality is a focus of treatment or you're dealing with other unrelated things, a therapist with a solid knowledge base & understanding of your needs & background is crucial. Many clients work with me because of my expertise & years of experience, or because they prefer working with a therapist who has first-hand knowledge of trans/queer identities.

While I still have an office location, I am transitioning my practice to an online/Tele-mental Health service which helps minimize typical barriers to receiving counseling such as child care, disability or transportation issues. I take a collaborative approach to this work and draw on my experience and education to provide an individualized approach to therapy.

Through a compassionate and understanding relationship I guide my clients to explore the stories that constraint them form having richer relationships and a more gratifying life. During the therapeutic process I help people turn challenges into opportunities for growth and development.

I believe that each person holds within themselves everything they need to heal and grow in the ways they would like. I see the therapist's role as being one in which provides an environment of safety and care where the client can explore themselves authentically. It is through this authentic exploration, that the therapist can help the client discover how patterns and ways of being are keeping the client stuck and resulting in suffering. By bringing into awareness these aspects, the client and therapist can then work collaboratively to release the pain and explore new ways of being.
