Whether you're exploring your gender identity or making a career change, aging or managing new health conditions, you are guaranteed to face transitions throughout life. Marriage, graduation, sexuality, relationships, and more. Even what are called "positive" changes are still stressors and can impact our moods and reveal the need for new or different coping mechanisms. Whether the transition is chosen or it chose you, I am here to support you as you journey down a new path.
As a proud member of the LGBTQIA+ community, and having spent my career working with people who are LGBTQIA+ in addition to those living with HIV, this is a passion of mine. I also welcome clients who are exploring or who are in poly and kink relationships. I provide surgery evaluations and letters for those seeking gender affirming surgical procedures, and I also provide counseling to parents, partners, and (adult) children of people who identify as LGBTQIA+.
I was amazed the first time I read about Highly Sensitive People (or HSP's) as I had never seen anything that explained my way of being in the world like this had. I am continuing to develop my skills in the area of working with HSP's, including HSP-specific and self-compassion-based learning.
