About My Clients

You waited years to call a therapist. It feels so hard to reach out after the experiences you've had. But now you are ready to stop blaming yourself for your trauma. You want to find you voice & learn to start caring for yourself in healthy ways. I work best with clients who can look at the areas where they feel stuck & be curious about why they think, feel, & act the way they do. When we look at how these impact your life, we can develop a roadmap get you where heart & mind are leading you.

How I Can Help You

My approach is not a one-size fits all. For high-functioning clients with a trauma history, I use EMDR to help you process the triggering memories & overwhelming emotions. With transgender clients new on their journey, I help you develop a timeline for coming out, while also unraveling the incredible distress caused by Gender Dysphoria. I can also write letters for Gender-Affirming Surgery. Our relationship is a collaborative one. I am probably not a good fit if you are looking to come in every week and just vent. I want to help you imagine your best life, and then work backwards to establish goals to get you there. I can teach you strategies to help you achieve those goals, and ultimately know when you are ready to graduate with a bunch of new tools in your toolbox. Your input is vital to our working relationship. I regularly check in for feedback about how therapy is going. What's working? What could be better? Therapy is an investment in yourself. Let's get to work!

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe you are stronger than you give yourself credit for & I want to help you uncover your strengths. Self-care is almost a mantra with me. So, what have you done lately? It often comes up in the form of homework assignments! Ah yes, homework. Life is what happens between sessions. We talk about blocks that get in the way of making changes, even small ones. I like to assign "experiments" to try for a week to see if changing a behavior has the desired effect. Then we look at how it worked and if it didn't, how can we tweak it next time? I belong to the LGBTQ+ community, and I am never a gate keeper for transgender clients seeking Gender-Affirming Surgery. You have lived through so much. Isn't it time for you to make an investment in yourself? When I am not working, I volunteer at Grammy Rose, a unique animal rescue in Maine dedicated to placing dogs from kill shelters in forever homes. I also bring my puppy, Ruby, to work for support & comic relief.
