About My Clients

Do you want to improve your relationships? Do you want to feel more security and enjoyment in your close circles? Do you want to feel more empowered and learn to say the things that feel too hard to say? Are you afraid of feeling judged in therapy for your sexual orientation or gender identity? I am an LGBTQ+ affirming therapist, passionate about helping individuals, couples, and families-of-choice have more intimacy, empathy, and collaboration in your relationships.

My Background and Approach

I want to help you separate who you think you "should" be from who you authentically are. We will help you cultivate an integrated sense of self with acceptance and celebration of what you stand for. You will build more meaningful connections that inspire vulnerability and intimacy, engage curiosity, and develop greater awareness around fears and conflicts that can often get in the way. We will clearly identify your needs and further develop the skills required to advocate for having them met. My approach brings in thoughtful consideration of clients’ cultures & the societal factors influencing each of us. Together we will curiously explore your environment and context and identify how issues of social justice and (in)equity may be contributing to your distress. We will investigate your experience as it occurs moment-to-moment by exploring what is happening in both your mind and body, and working to meaningfully integrate the two as a powerful source of helpful information.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that meaningful connection is essential and that we possess the strengths we need to have lives full of nourishing relationships, laughter, and a greater sense of wellbeing. I believe that good therapeutic work requires an empathic therapeutic relationship built on trust, warmth, humor, and curiosity-one where both parties are influencing and learning from each other. I am a proud feminist therapist & activist, bringing transparency and vulnerability to my work. I am not your "blank slate" therapist...You will get to know me and what I stand for, and that seems only fair! I stand up for social justice values and work to combat inequality, prejudice, and isolation. I am a HUGE animal lover and big believer of the benefits of the human-animal bond. I am a popcorn eater, tea drinker, pet mama, and animal rescue volunteer. I look forward to hearing from you.
