About My Clients

You waited years to seek out a therapist. I get it. It can feel incredibly hard to reach out and be vulnerable. You have been carrying around this baggage called Trauma. You want help from a Trans-Affirming Queer therapist. Face it-you needed Caregiver Support for burnout yesterday! I work best with clients who want to look at the areas where they feel stuck & are willing to be emotionally curious about what they feel & how those feelings impact their life. It's time for you to start living!

How I Can Help You

My approach is tailored to YOU. It's definitely not a one size fits all. For clients with a trauma history, I use EMDR to release you from your triggers & overwhelming emotions. With transgender clients new in their journey, I help you develop a timeline for coming out or figure out how to deal with the daily microaggressions that hurt to your very core. I 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 like to work with you to establish goals, 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. 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 give yourself credit for, and I help you uncover your strengths. Self-care is almost a mantra with me! So, what have you done lately? It often comes up as homework assignments! Ah yes, homework. Life is what happens between sessions. We talk about blocks that get in the way of making changes, sometimes even small, incremental changes. Then I like to assign "Experiments" to try for a week to see if changing a behavior has the desired effect. We look at how things worked out and if it didn't, how can we tweak it next time? You have lived through so much. Now is the time to get the help you need so you can shed all of that baggage. I belong to the LGBTQ+ community, and I am never a gate keeper for transgender clients seeking Gender-Affirming Surgery. When I am not working, I spend time volunteering at Grammy Rose, a unique animal rescue & sanctuary dedicated to placing dogs from kill shelters in forever homes. I am in heaven there!
