my work with the LBGTQ community has been a gift to me and my expertise is growing every day in working with the transgender community.
A close friend told me once we are all passing on what we learn to others. Life is a journey and some obstacles are hard to overcome. Together we can find the right way to help you gain a happier and healthier life. With the use of a variety of skills, including EMDR, play therapy, Cognitive Behavioral therapy, music therapy etc we can set a course to continue your journey.

Have you always known you were different? Like, so different most people just... don't get it? It may feel like there is just no corner of the planet where you can be yourself. You have spent your whole life trying to be what everyone else wanted you to be. When you think about who you are, you can't really put a finger on what that is exactly. Maybe you believe that if you just play along with everyone else you will be safe, successful, and better off. Maybe you have reached a point where you realize that, that is no longer working for you. I am here to listen and give a voice to who you are and would like to be.

If you are ready to make changes in your life, there is help. I enjoy working with motivated clients towards healing and wholeness. I believe that therapy is very much a "team" effort, requiring input from client and clinician alike. I also believe that removing the "smoke and mirrors" from therapy is especially helpful and I work to make the process as transparent as possible. Therapy is an incredible, life-changing process and it requires participation. It is likely that you already possess your own answers. Let's find them together.

We all crave connection with others. We thrive when we experience belonging & acceptance, both within our own souls & the hearts of others. When that connection is weakened or damaged through struggles with communication, lack of safety, or fears of rejection, we often resort to strategies aimed at self-protection. While that protection is sacred, I want to help that protector within you learn to trust your Self & follow your lead. You have within you a powerful resource of connection, compassion, & creativity. I seek to assist you in reclaiming your sacred power—your internal capacity to promote healing, resilience, & pleasure.
