Sharing your most personal and intimate details to a stranger can be overwhelming and can make a person feel judged. I try to create a safe place for clients to discuss current challenges and past experiences without judgment. I work with adults who are struggling with anxiety, depression, and trauma. Additionally, I work with many adolescents that are questioning their gender identity. I work with the parents, families, and caretakers to assist with any questions or concerns during their gender identity or the transition process.I am an International Board Certified Transgender Care Therapist (ITCA), a member of WPATH.

Psychological evaluations are my area of expertise and passion. My goal when conducting assessments is to identify an individual’s areas of strength and weakness in order to provide recommendations for treatment, work and/or school, interpersonal relationships, and daily living. In the context of assessments, I can provide diagnoses and second opinions. A diagnosis is only one aspect of the process, however, and I emphasize understanding underlying cognitive, emotional, and interpersonal processes, and how these combine and manifest in daily life.

Does is feel like anxiety and depression are taking over your life? Are you fighting that powerless feeling, trying to hold on to hope, determined to find some way out of that trap? You may already know where it all started or you may have no answers to the "why's". I can help you find, name and clear out the roots of your suffering. Once the roots are cleared, you will find that change is easy and natural. Clients tell me that it sometimes feels like a miracle, but the power of this therapy is rooted in science. It is simply working with an understanding of how memories are held in our bodies and subconscious mind.

I thoroughly enjoy working with "emerging adults." Those who may be struggling to find their sense of identity and adapting to the greater demands and responsibilities of adulthood. Have you recently had a baby, and you're struggling with the transition to motherhood? With advanced training in perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADS), I have a passion for working with women who are struggling to connect to their baby or finding it hard to feel like themselves again. I also enjoy working with couples and aim to help couples identify repetitive patterns of conflict and access emotions underlying the conflict.

Therapy is one's personal identified journey of trials, tribulations, highs-and-lows, and uncertainty. Clients who gravitate towards me are those who prefer transparency, engagement, no judgement, and genuine validation and assistance on their road to "who they themselves identify they want to be". Clients who work with me realize that days are difficult, as is change; however, they do not mind the reminders and encouraging sessions that enhance and challenge accountability and resiliency.
