I specialize in providing effective and compassionate treatment to individuals navigating gender and sexuality, mood and anxiety concerns.
Counselor in Hamden, CT
I help people who are struggling to understand their identity, need support to determine how and when to reveal their identity to others, or are processing loss or stress related to living their identity fully. I also work with individuals, couples, and families who require mental health care outside of sexual or gender identity, but whom benefit from a counselor who understands the community.
I work with people of all ages, and their families when appropriate, who are exploring their gender. I offer help with understanding gender identity more fully and, if desired, securing gender affirming procedures.
I work with mood and anxiety disorders using a behavioral approach, wherein clients are encouraged to better understand their emotions as well as develop health coping patterns.
I have completed intensive training in DBT and currently off comprehensive DBT which includes individual counseling sessions, DBT Skills Groups, and a Consultation Team for the Therapist.
For individuals who are looking to move past surviving to thriving, or prefer not to operate from a diagnostic or insurance lens, I offer coaching sessions.
I have completed Basic and Specialized training in ACT and currently offer ACT or ACT informed therapy for individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, and OCD.
