About My Clients

I have worked extensively in partnership with people experiencing anxiety, trauma, concerns regarding chronic illness, issues related to self and sexual esteem, improving communication in relationships, and coping with family matters. My practice focuses on individuals, couples, and the LGBQ/TGNCNB community using a combination of art therapy, CBT, and sex therapy.

My Background and Approach

Each session will offer tools and ways to help confront thoughts and behaviors that are not working for you, identify your strengths, and feel a sense of empowerment. With this work comes a greater ability to express yourself and acknowledge all of the accomplishments throughout the process of your growth. To do this, I use an eclectic approach which includes psychodynamics and CBT. We want to understand what makes us the way we are so that we can purposefully and respectfully make changes that will help us become more fulfilled with the life we live. With couples, I utilize the Gottman Method to identify strengths and build healthier communication which leads to more satisfying friendship and sex.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a proud bisexual woman and actively support the LGBQ/TGNCNB community. I value freedom of expression and fully believe that love is love is love is love... Supporting my community brings me joy and a satisfaction in my career that is beyond measure. As a white person, I am aware of my responsibility to dismantle white supremacy and help other white people understand that Black and Brown Lives Matter. Climate change is of utmost importance to me and is a social justice issue I feel strongly about. Science matters.
