Announcement icon I am currently offering video or phone sessions in response to these rapidly changing circumstances. Be well and safe.
*My practice is currently full* Therapy provides an opportunity to explore experiences and feelings in a safe, non-judgmental environment which can lead to self-acceptance, improved mood, and the development of new strategies to deal with complex issues. My therapeutic style is interactive and supportive, drawing on an integrative blend of psychodynamic, mind/body, and cognitive behavioral techniques. I work with individuals and couples from a practical, here-and-now perspective while attending to the impact that familial, cultural, and early childhood experiences can have on current functioning.
With over twenty years of experience providing psychotherapy to individuals and couples, I have a broad range of clinical skills and training which allows me to customize therapy to the unique needs of each client. Clients report decreased distress and greater self-awareness from engaging in the therapeutic process.
As an AASECT certified sex therapist, I have clinical training and experience working with a broad range of sexual health matters. In my practice I welcome LGBTQ individuals and couples as well as individuals exploring matters related to gender. I look forward to speaking with you regarding your interest in therapy.
