My areas of focus include anxiety, depression, PTSD, grief, and phase-of-life transitions. My practice affirms gender non-conforming individuals and persons of trans experience, as well as queer, lesbian, gay, bisexual, and asexual persons. I also welcome individuals practicing alternative relationship styles such as non-monogamy, polyamory, and BDSM.
My Background and Approach
I use an integrated approach which draws on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Existential Therapy, and Mindfulness-based techniques. I believe that we are the experts in our own lives. We live, work, and play in ours bodies everyday; we are the first to experience our thoughts, feelings, and emotions. We all grow and change moment to moment as we interact with the world and those around us, seeking to create meaningful lives–to find happiness and fulfillment. With this in mind, I strive to make each therapeutic relationship a collaboration; the client leads their own therapeutic journey, identifying and setting their own goals while I shore up their process through support in developing skills that the client needs to reach those goals.
