You are at a place in your life where you want to feel heard, validated, affirmed and respected. You are tired of feeling dismissed and not important. You are exhausted from trying to just survive and you want to LIVE. You want a therapist who makes every session worth your time and energy, someone who engages with you in a very active way. Someone who will challenge you but also celebrate with you every victory. You want to finally just be able to feel the way you want to feel!

My practice LGBTQA+ affirming and I have extensive training and consultation in providing services for those struggling with gender dysphoria or gender issues.
The choice to start therapy can be a difficult one. Sometimes life’s greatest challenges also present opportunities for transformation. My desire is to provide a safe and comfortable space where that can occur. Psychotherapy can be a wonderful process to take much needed time for yourself. The world throws a lot at us. I believe therapy needs to be a conversation-tailored to each persons individual needs. Collaboration is key and my goal is to help my clients learn skills and strategies to increase coping and find peace. I also believe that change is possible for every person. My pronouns are she/her.

I have worked with a diverse population, presenting with depression, anxiety, relationship conflict, low-self-esteem, gender dysphoria, exploring sexual identity, trauma, grief, & career dissatisfaction.
I see therapy as a process in which you and I work together towards helping you overcome obstacles to living life authentically, as a healthy, integrated person. This can be achieved by helping you gain insight into relational themes and patterns, learn new coping strategies, and become empowered to take the steps needed to create the change you desire. Often we experience symptoms such as anxiety or depressed mood that interfere with our ability to achieve or even form goals. Through alleviating these symptoms, you can increase understanding of yourself, honor your needs, and develop more satisfying relationships with others and with yourself.

I am a parent of a transgender child of whom I am proud.
Are you feeling overwhelmed, stressed or anxious? Do you have child or are you questioning their sexual identification/ expression/ orientation? Through stress management, identity exploration, mindfulness, and active listening, I hope that I can help you to understand yourself better, love yourself more and manage your feelings and behaviors better. I use a combination of counseling, art therapy and play therapy, (depending on interest and age) to help you to be comfortable with the person that you are instead of the person you think you should be. Currently I am only seeing clients on-line.

Anxiety, depression, and difficulty coping can significantly impact your life and prevent you from reaching your true potential. As an experienced psychotherapist, I help my clients overcome these problems and take back their lives. I understand the fear, lack of motivation, mistrust, hyper-vigilance, hopelessness, sadness, and other suffering these problems create.

As a white, nonbinary trans, polyamorous, fat, and nondisabled music therapist, I strive to foster creative, affirming healing spaces that allow clients to find meaningful growth. I emphasize a collaborative, nonpathologizing approach informed by feminist, resource-oriented, trauma-informed, queer, disability, and liberation theories. This means that we will both bring our knowledge, resources, and life experiences into the therapy space, guiding us in our work. It also means that I'm not here to question "what is wrong with you" or give you the answers to life's problems but rather to support you in finding those answers yourself.

*Not accepting clients* I view therapy not just as a way to address concerns or issues that one might have but as an opportunity to better understand yourself as a whole. When we take the time to explore how we act, think, and feel we are able to access new parts of ourselves and how we interact with others in our life. The process of therapy can be powerful. I can offer this opportunity for you to explore yourself and the things you want to change in your life in a setting that is safe, supportive, non-judgmental, & welcoming.
