I cater specifically to high-functioning adults, addressing the subtle complexities of medical conditions, caregiver responsibilities, and family or relationship dynamics.
With a wealth of experience in navigating the intricate paths of mental health, I am dedicated to fostering transformative journeys for those grappling with anxiety, depression, mood disorders, and the complex emotional landscapes of grief and loss. I take pride in creating a supportive and inclusive environment, where individuals from all walks of life, including members of the queer, transgender, non-binary communities, and those engaged in open, non-monogamous, or sex-positive/kink relationships, feel deeply valued and respected.

I'm here to help you as you work through your stress, anxiety, depression, past trauma and build resilience. We can need help in our personal life, family life and our professional life. I am in my second career as a therapist. I started out as an attorney and realized that I needed to make a big change in my life. Making that change took some hard work, but it was well worth it. I now get the privilege of seeing people make beautiful changes in their own lives and journey with them as they find their own voice and claim their own story. What an amazing thing to witness!

I welcome adults, adolescents, couples, individuals and families. Integrating a number of modalities, I offer the opportunity to safely explore and identify those issues interfering with happiness. This approach gives consideration to an individual's spirituality, community, culture, ethnicity and gender.

For many, deciding to meet with a therapist is a big decision. Often times it is seen as a last resort. Talking to family and friends is not always the preferred way of dealing with a situation and that is when talking to a professional is something to consider. I have experience working with depression, anxiety, personality disorders, mood disorders, grief, PTSD, family dynamic problems, couples, parent-child relationships and more. I strive to help my clients learn the skills to work with whatever life throws at them.

With a focus on the LGBTQ+ community, mood disorders and trauma, I have experience as a therapist in dual-diagnosis outpatient programs and inpatient hospitalization, offering individual, group, and family counseling to adults, children, and teens.
My ideal client is someone who is a teen or adult and is struggling with a mood disorder, identity discovery, and relationship issues. Their needs lie in guidance on psychoeducation, building boundaries within themselves and with others, processing any trauma-related problems, and navigating relationships. Their goals would be to manage their mood disorder to where it is not interfering with life, confidence in themselves when setting boundaries and knowing who they are, and becoming more comfortable with discussing difficult thoughts and emotions.

Your child, and you, can both learn ways of communicating and coping that can once again lead to the connected family life you want both of you to have.
It can be difficult to watch your child suffer. It is even more difficult to decide that you can't help and need to bring in an outsider. From the age of 11 on, children begin navigating more complex emotional lives. It can be difficult to deal with these big feelings when you don't have the vocabulary or tools to communicate what's going on. When your child speaks through behavior instead of words, you get things like bad grades, self harm, statements like "I hate myself" and "I'm a bad kid," drug use, sneaking out, and more.
