I have also worked heavily with the LGBTQ + population, focusing on topics of coming out, shame, sexual identity, gender identity, and gender transition.
I became a therapist out of a passion and love in walking others through the storms of life. We all experience times in our lives that leave us bruised, battered, and beaten. As a therapist, my goal is to help you find a way out of your storm and become a stronger, more resilient, and more fulfilled person. The basis for my practice is Existential Therapy, where I help clients truly grasp their relationships with themselves and the world around them. I bring in other therapeutic techniques and styles to individualize treatment to what each client needs and wants out of therapy.

I work with many diverse people, including adults, older teens, LGBTQ + clients, and adopted individuals.
Whether you want to enhance your self-confidence, address unresolved relational issues, or gain a greater appreciation for life in general, therapy can guide the way and provide you with a plan for success. Such exploration is especially helpful if you find that you have been relying on unhealthy coping mechanisms to appreciate yourself, your relationships, or your life. Often, people turn to substances or unsatisfying relationships in order to distract themselves from their discontent; therapy offers the means to transform the unhealthy patterns so that true joy and contentment can be realized.

Life is a rollercoaster (up, down, up, up, down) and the path to healing is not often a straight line. Whatever it is you may have going on, talking about it often helps. If you are looking for a safe, supportive environment to heal, explore, learn and ultimately grow you are in the right place. Depression, anxiety and LGBTQIA + are some areas of specialization as well as any relational concerns with family, friends or one or multiple romantic partner/s.

In addition, I love helping queer folks or people struggling with trauma resolve any issues around their identity or overall functioning.
My overall goal of therapy is holding you accountable in a nonjudgmental way that supports your goals, validates your efforts, and challenges you in a way that aligns with your worldview. I like to offer feedback in an objective way and suggest skills and perspectives that you choose whether or not to implement. The methodology of my approach is conversation; two people in a room trying to figure things out while utilizing various perspectives, theories, and attempts. An emphasis of my time with you is always you; your goals, thoughts, emotions, and beliefs are valuable and I find exploring them in a therapeutic setting helpful.

Are you or your child struggling with depression or anxiety? Gender or identity issues? Have you noticed a change in sleeping patterns? Is there a noticeable difference in appetite? Has avoidant behavior or isolation become less the exception and more the norm? Is work or school suffering? Are personal relationships suffering? Have daily tasks become overwhelming? One of the hardest things we can do is acknowledge that something is not right. But that doesn't mean it can't be right again. Negative patterns can be interrupted. Negative thoughts can be replaced with self-compassion. Anxiety can be overcome. Change is possible.
