About My Clients

Clients have often waited years to seek out a therapist. It can feel incredibly hard to reach out and be vulnerable with another person. You have been carrying around the baggage of trauma. You want help from a trans-affirming queer therapist. I work best with clients who are open to looking at the areas where they feel stuck & are emotionally curious about what they feel & how those feelings impact their life. Together we help you live the life you were meant to live.

My Background and Approach

My approach is tailored to the individual client. It's definitely not a one size fits all approach. For clients with a trauma history, I use EMDR to release you from your triggers. I graduated from Columbia University in 1988. I worked for various agencies gaining valuable knowledge about people and their struggles before opening up my practice in 2008. I see our relationship as a collaborative one. I'm not one to sit back & just tell you what you should do. Nor do I work well with clients who just need to come in and vent about their week. I like to work with you to establish goals so we know what we are working toward, 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. Research shows that the biggest predictor of therapy effectiveness is our relationship. We work together to establish a trusting one. Call 603-994-0114 for a free 15-minute consultation to see if we might be a good fit.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe you are stronger than you believe, and I help you uncover your strengths. You have lived through so much. Now is the time to get the help you know you need so we can work together to help you shed all that no longer serves you. I belong to the LGBTQ community, and I am never a gate keeper for transgender clients seeking letters for surgery. I work from a stance of informed consent, making sure risks and benefits have been discussed.
