About My Clients

I specialize in working with transgender clients, using play therapy to work through difficult conversations, and helping parents develop skills and strategies to combat their child's defiant behaviors. I work with clients from all walks of life and am a queer-friendly provider.

My Background and Approach

All people are affected by our own personal system--our experiences, our surroundings, and other people in our lives. Together we'll explore ways that your relationships with the important people and institutions in your life have impacted the way you move in the world and interact with others. As a marital and family therapist, I am always looking at the client's systems, even when there is only one person on the couch. I am trained in experiential and narrative family therapy, play therapy, EMDR, and a variety of other therapeutic techniques.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

As a therapist, it's my job to walk beside you, to listen to your struggles and dreams, and to discover paths leading to what you believe will best help you achieve your goals. I will be your support through this part of your journey, whether it's recovery from trauma, gender transition, family struggles, or identifying ways to live a fulfilling and mentally healthy life. "If you find a path with no obstacles, it probably doesn't lead anywhere." --Frank A. Clark
