About My Clients

My clients range from those who have never had therapy before to those who are revisiting prior issues or exploring new goals. Regardless of the situation, I know that finding a good therapeutic match is important and hope the information on my listing can assist you in finding what you need. I work predominately with LGBTQIA+ people (though sexuality and gender are not always a primary issue) and on common mental health concerns (e.g. anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, coping, changes).

My Background and Approach

When working with clients I start with a humanistic approach supported by research findings. We explore not only emotional health but also personal goals, social and family life, physical health academic/career progress, as well as other aspects of identity/culture (e.g. religious background, race, ethnicity, sexuality, ability, etc.). I also use the Gottman Method in my work with couples and find it complements my overall theoretical orientation in that it is both relational and research-based. My training is in counseling psychology and I have worked in a range of settings including colleges, hospitals and integrated health clinics. I enjoy providing supervision and training as well as staying involved with professional organizations. I am a WPATH member, have authored several articles and book chapters on intersexuality, serve on SAMHSA's National Workgroup to Address the Needs of Children and Youth Who Are LGBTQI2-S and am a medical advisor to the AIS-DSD support group.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that no therapist can be completely unbiased or is a neutral party (both in treatment and in their personal life). As such, I continually examine myself and my actions and value the feedback of others. Relational work is essential to making the world a more equitable, sustainable and meaningful place. We have a long way to go but I appreciate all of those who have spent their time shaping me into who I am as a psychologist and as an overall human.
