I have extensive training in LGBTQ+ issues, including the transition process for transgender individuals.
Do you feel like you’re running yourself ragged trying to make everyone else happy? Like you don’t know who you are outside of others’ expectations? I work with people who are struggling with identity in different ways. Some feel like their identity was lost to abuse or to a bigger personality in the house. Others are recovering from losing who they are because of a traumatic experience that seemed to change them forever. Still others do not feel like their true identity is within the body they were born in.

As a therapist, I believe our lives are made up of relationships - relationship with others, with the world around us, and with ourselves. When we feel "out of whack," this is one sign that at least one of these relationships needs our attention. Therapy is an excellent avenue to examine and explore these connections. My practice is rooted in client-centered approaches. While I use cognitive behavioral, motivational, and mindfulness-based techniques - each session is tailored to meet you right where you are that day. My hope is that you feel safe and affirmed during all interactions.

Clients who work with me learn to better understand their emotional triggers, work to overcome life’s setbacks, manage stress more productively, communicate with others more effectively, and set healthy boundaries. My approach involves getting to know each of my clients, beyond what has brought them into therapy. I seek to understand what your goals are for this journey, and we together discuss how I can support you in working on what can be changed, and learning to cope with people and situations that we cannot change.
