Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in Portland, ME

About My Clients

My clients span the spectrum of gender and sexual orientation, and often come into therapy with specific concerns or goals related to anxiety, depression, trauma, gender, sexual problems, ADHD, attachment, and/or relationships. I've found that so many people are funny, smart, resourceful, and capable beyond their current beliefs about themselves. If you read this and think, "well, not me," then I accept your challenge! ;)

My Background and Approach

I work with adolescents, adults, and partners looking for new ways to approach their lives. I believe we learn strategies for being in the world from our experiences and social circumstances - and sometimes they work better than others! I also believe that our minds and bodies are a single system, so that changes we make in one area are bound to impact the other. As a result, I like to explore creative bio-psycho-social solutions. I wholeheartedly believe that my clients are in the driver's seat - I'm here as a resource, support, and co-explorer through the therapeutic process. Through providing therapy for the past 12 years, and my prior 14 years doing sexuality education and gender violence prevention, I have come to deeply understand how important it is to have a safe place to discuss "the things we don't talk about." Additionally, understanding our experiences, beliefs, and identities within the larger sociocultural context can help to reduce feelings of shame and isolation.
