With over twenty years experience in LGBTQ counseling, research, and teaching, I have a unique understanding of our community. Among LGBTQ individuals anxiety and depression may involve feelings of emptiness, relationship problems, interpersonal sensitivity, or addictions. The roots of these struggles can vary, but it helps to have a therapist who grasps the alienating impact of growing up in a world that disavows the core of who we are. I will help you address these issues, and others, through a deeper approach that can feel energizing, challenging, and even liberating.

Therapy is a deeply personal, multifaceted journey inward in an already complex world. To those who choose to venture down this road, the process can leave one feeling emotional and vulnerable, but it will also be healing, enlightening and enriching. Taking steps down this path is a virtuous act and I am here to honor you and your process. Together we will gently explore what may be causing you pain. Healing is at the heart of my practice - what you will experience with me is empathy, non-judgmental compassion, and authenticity. My therapeutic style is warm, energetic and engaged.

Non-monogamous/Poly, Kink/Fetishist, Queer/Trans, Anti-capitalists & “others” who deviate from conventional cultural scripts know too well how normativity may act as a tyrannical agent of unhappiness, especially when preferred expressions of intimacy & embodiment are read as “problematic”. That’s why I do not equate “healthy” with “normal” nor aim to be prescriptive about how you “ought“ to experience being in this world. Living along the fringes of normativity is not an easy choice.But it can be a worthy choice, fulfilling and purposeful! And yet also accompanied by high costs, which can feel compromising to dignity and self-worth.

Life has a way throwing curve balls. From unexpected challenges to fluctuating deadlines, life sometimes causes us to feel like we are aiming for a moving target. Relationships are guaranteed to have pitfalls that can surprise anyone. Trauma often is the leftover when a home or society is not welcoming, when violence has been perpetrated on you, or when you are faced with overwhelming loss. You will need access to your internal resources when addressing past and present trauma. Living life with a centered mindfulness can help guide you to wholeness.

I work with adolescent and adult clients in individual, couples & family therapy. My personal philosophy is that through human connection, we can foster the encouragement needed to take courageous steps toward seeing an old pattern through a new perspective to create positive change. I use a strengths-based approach & believe in the inherent wisdom of each individual. Therapy thus serves as a road map, illuminating the path so the client can make conscious choices. My attitude is one of respect and acceptance of each client's self-image and world-view allowing for the creation of a safe, therapeutic container.

Early relationships shape the way the mind and brain develop from our young years into our adult lives. Our connections with caregivers induce neural circuit firings that persist throughout our lives, shaping how we think, feel, remember, and behave. When we are lucky enough to have secure attachment experiences in which we feel seen, safe, soothed, and secure—the “four S’s of attachment” that serve as the foundation for a healthy mind—these relational experiences stimulate the neuronal activation and growth of the integrative fibers of the brain.

We often forget that our first experience of the world is a shared one; that by nature we are relational beings. Which is why therapy can be so powerful. My job is to help you move away from the things that no longer work (perhaps never did), and toward a preferred way of being. Our process together is one of discovery & transformation, and honors both what you are and what you are becoming. You and I will collaborate to create an environment that is safe and supportive (I don't do that alone -- only you know what is safe). Through compassion & curiosity, our therapy will find new narratives and make meaning of old ones.
