I am an LGBTQ+ Affirming, sex – positive, kink aware therapist.
I believe in the importance of a person’s story and meeting each person where they are in the present moment, while honoring experiences from the past. There are often events or themes within a person’s childhood that can lead them to experience difficulties later in their lives if left unresolved. These difficulties often appear in the form of unhealthy traits or toxic cycles within romantic relationships or friendships. Other times, there are negative thoughts such as “I should have known better” or “I always do something wrong” that constantly circle in a person’s mind.

I am here to help someone who wants help and wants to get better. These two goals are necessary to make the therapeutic relationship worthwhile. I'm not just here to help those who have been diagnosed with something like depression or anxiety or bipolar disorder. I have been privileged to also work with clients who have negative experiences as African Americans, negative experiences as women, negative experiences as part of the LGBTQ+ community, or negative experiences connected to exploring alternative spiritualities. If this is you, know that I explicitly hold space for you in my practice and offer a safe place.

There are times in life when you need an ally. Someone to listen, offer feedback, and help you realize your potential. During such times a therapist can be an important support. Whether you are struggling with isolation during COVID, are finding it hard to move past a break up, or cope with the absence of a loved one. Perhaps the struggle of "adulting" has you in total disbelief, or at a loss for words. These are times when you have an opportunity to make great change. Not because someone told you to go to therapy, but because you want to find yourself. My goal is to help you find your way and renew your outlook on life.

I am sex positive and work with traditional and non-traditional couples on a variety of relationship struggles.
Arguing? Struggling to communicate effectively with your partner? Starting to feel resentment and questioning if you're with the right person? Perhaps you've endured abandonment or trauma and these experiences are making it difficult for you to be open or intimate. A strong connection with a loved one is the best source of resilience and comfort. Strengthening your connection with your loved one(s) is my overarching goal. We will sit together and work through structured and empirically-validated processes of couples counseling to help you open up to each other and build (or, re-build) your bond.

A couple of notes about my practice: I am an LGBTQIA ally, kink -positive & CNM aware.
I specialize in sexual health, intimacy, and relationships (especially the one we have with self). I am passionate about helping you enrich your life—by empowering you to unpack what’s preventing you from fully embracing all of life’s pleasures. I believe that we all have the intrinsic ability to heal ourselves. In my practice, psychotherapy is a journey of self healing, with me as your guide. Connection is one of our most powerful tools, and through connecting with me, together, we will cultivate transformation and uncover the peace that lies within you.

I am passionate about couple and family work, and am knowledgeable about and have experience working with the LGBTQ+, nonmonogamous and kink communities.
I fiercely believe we all have the power to heal from within and value walking beside my clients on their healing journeys while fostering a safe, collaborative space for self-exploration to take place. I enjoy helping clients break free from thought and behavior patterns that are not serving them on their path to healing, while also exploring the ways the past is influencing the present. Empowering clients to honor their authentic selves and supporting them in navigating staying true to that authenticity in our complex world is an essential aspect of my approach. There is strength to be found in our struggles.

I have been assisting people to overcome depression, anxiety and to repair relationships seemingly in free-fall for more than 40 years. Because there is no shortcut to peace and well-being, treatment is open-ended, tailored to each person's unique needs. Teletherapy by computer, tablet, and smartphone is available for individual, couple, and group treatment sessions. With COVID-19, Shelter-in-Place puts even more stress on relationships and employment. Alcohol, drug use, and porn addiction can make relationships even harder. I have much experience assisting addicts to achieve a more peaceful and productive life for self and family.

Are you struggling with depression or anxiety? Would you like to improve your self esteem? Learn to set boundaries? Better understand yourself? Move in a new direction? Need some extra support through a challenging situation? I'd love to help. I work to build a strong relationship with each client; one that promotes trust, awareness and understanding. I see psychotherapy as a collaborative effort in which we are equal partners who talk with each other rather than at each other. This approach provides you the freedom to tell your story, without expectations or judgments, while I share my thoughts and observations as food for thought

I believe we are wired to seek connection and security. Emotion is the language of connection so I work with individuals and couples to understand how their emotional world shapes their life. You may have learned to withdraw/numb feelings, deny or feel shame about them, or that your emotions are “too much”. Your feelings are valid, important, and resourceful, and designed to shine a light on what you are needing. Whether I am working with individuals or couples, I can support you to organize your emotions, understand their origins and functions, and utilize them to create secure, emotionally intimate, and responsive relationships.
