Common issues associated with this population include: coming out, transitioning ( transgender ), family/social rejection and discrimination, substance abuse, depression, and anxiety.
I believe that therapy is a place where meaningful dialogue is co-created and tailored to help individuals, couples, and families achieve their goals, maximize their potentials, and to heal emotionally. My clinical orientation is integrative and includes approaches such as Cognitive-Behavioral, Psychodynamic, Mindfulness-based, and Humanistic therapies.

Have you been giving it your all, but it just never feels good enough? Do you ever feel like the world was built for people whose brains must work differently from yours? Daily tasks and social interactions seem so easy for everyone else… so why does it feel so hard for you? If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the world, you’re not alone. Anxiety can be crippling and rob you of your sense of self. Therapy can help. In over a decade of practice, I have helped people who feel different, quirky, weird, or out-of-place learn to celebrate their uniqueness, harness their strengths, and tame their anxiety.
