About My Clients

I work primarily with members of the LGBTQ+ community and help clients navigate the challenges of coming out, becoming their most authentic selves, and building relationships that reflect their values and prioritize their needs. I also work with clients who struggle with sex, compulsive sexual behaviors, the effects of sexual traumas, and issues of intimacy, esteem, and self-worth. I see clients in the evenings, by telehealth only, and do not accept insurance at this time.

My Background and Approach

Are you struggling with anxiety, depression, the lasting effects of trauma, or the challenges of everyday life? Do you feel stuck in place, surrounded by obstacles, and unsure of how to move forward? Together, we'll explore the patterns of thought and behavior that have contributed to your current distress and then work toward building greater understanding, empowerment, and peace in your life. I am a cognitive-behavioral therapist by training and am able to offer many different evidence-based and supportive therapies in our work together. I have extensive post-doctoral experience with trauma-focused therapies and many years of training in the the treatment of emotional disorders, including depression, anxiety, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. At Boston University, my research focused on the impact of alcohol use on sexual decision-making in gay and bisexual men.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that each and every one of us is special and worthy of love and commitment. We each deserve to be the brightest, healthiest, and most authentic versions of ourselves, free from the destructive power of mental illness and emotional distress. Starting therapy can be uncomfortable and overwhelming, and I pledge to offer unconditional support to you during each step of your journey. This doesn't mean that we'll avoid difficult topics, but that I will always respect your boundaries and honor your values during our work together.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
