About My Clients
Are you dealing with the weight of the world on your shoulders? Do you feel like you're an "outsider" or "pretender" wondering where your contentment is? Are you not sure who you are and what you want in the world? If you answered yes to any of these questions, I have something to say to you: You're not broken and you're not alone. I can help you live the life you want to live, deserve to live, and were meant to live -- on your terms. It's time for you to have control of your life. You decide.
My Background and Approach
I take a positive, strengths-based, collaborative approach to therapy. Everyone's therapy is different, so I work with each every patient to customize treatment using evidence-based, proven therapy modalities like CBT, DBT, ACT, and Brief Psychodynamic Psychotherapy. I have a few specific specialty areas that I work with: Anxiety, LGBTQIA+/SGM issues, Eating Disorders, Chronic Illness/Pain, Identity/Meaning, and Life Transitions. These are areas where I have special training and experience that we can use to help you live your life on your terms and to your values.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I'm a member of the LGBTQIA+ community myself, and have specialized my training and practice to serve this community. I believe that each person deserves the dignity to define themselves as they are and decide what's best for themselves. I also believe that transgender rights are human rights.
