Knowing that we can be loved exactly as we are gives us the best opportunity to grow into the healthiest people. I believe therapeutic relationships can help ease worries and struggles and restore hope, even during seasons of immense pain and suffering. Having a place where you can be heard and feel understood is essential to your healing. As our therapeutic relationship deepens, individuals gain insight into what initially brought them to see me.
Do you feel caught up in indecisiveness, afraid of making the wrong decision? Or, maybe intimidated by the changes to come even if you make the right decision? Fear and doubt can feel debilitating and complex, impacting your relationships, work-life balance, ability to find pleasure or meaning, and your view of yourself. Navigated with thoughtfulness and purpose, talk therapy can facilitate growth as you feel understood and discover freedom to make new choices in your life.
Do you feel stuck, or at an impasse in your current life? Perhaps a certain behavior, worry, or the use of a substance has become a larger piece of your life than you wanted. It could be that anxiety or depression have kept you from achieving what you want, or being who you want to be. Maybe you’ve had a change in your life that’s been difficult to handle. I work with adults, teens, and children with a variety of needs to provide a safe and encouraging space to learn and grow.
Being human is often tough. Sometimes we lose our way and can feel stuck and overwhelmed. Sometimes we would like to change parts of our lives or ourselves but don’t know how. Therapy can be an empowering way to promote healing, growth, and wellness. Often, we initially seek treatment to address a specific concern and then begin to uncover other areas of our lives in which we want to make meaningful change. My goal is for this process to feel supportive, affirming, and appropriately challenging.
My clients are multicultural—I work with anyone regardless of genders, religion, background, sexuality, or favorite ice cream flavor. My approach is to empower individuals to achieve their goals while supporting lasting positive change in their lives. The scope of my practice includes teens and adults in every stage of life. My goal is to put myself out of job and I'd love to work with you--contact me for a free 15-minute phone consultation!
I welcome people of all races, ethnicities, gender, and sexual orientations. People have worked with me to explore things like depression, anxiety, gender identity, grief/loss, life transitions, recovering from infidelity, and more. I specialize in working with trans, nonbinary, and queer-identified clients. I provide knowledgeable support through social and medical transition and provide HRT/surgery letters. I enjoy supporting and educating partners and family members through therapy as well.
My practice is centered within the queer community. As a queer relational therapist, my passions are fueled by identity formation, improving self-worth, relational therapy, challenging systemic oppression, and managing symptoms of depression and OCD. I also love working with queer men to create emotional maturity. My ideal clients are men who are ready to put in the work and take their next steps in their journey to better mental health and more sustainable relationships.
I love working with clients who have chosen alternative lifestyles, disenfranchised individuals, and those who face the stigma of being different! Facing stigma, prejudice, and judgemental ideologies can be traumatic. Getting the help you need, from a Psychologist with 25 years of experience working thru these issues will be a comforting and enlightening journey. I also specialize in trauma recovery and Adult Children of Narcissistic Parents. I am a PsyPact Psychologist and able to practice in
Always second guessing your comments and over explaining is exhausting. Not knowing what to expect you walk on eggshells questioning what will happen next? Narcissistic-like behaviors include swinging from being caring and attentive to being irritated, demanding and manipulative. We continue to tell ourselves they will change, as we have invested so much time and energy into the relationship. Now, walking away does not seem like an option or maybe you are "done".
We provide counseling services to children, teens, and adults and are able to help with concerns such as anxiety, depression, social issues, family issues, and academic struggles. We also provide diagnostic assessments for ADHD, learning disabilities, and autism, as well as other mental health issues.
Adults with ADHD are often overlooked, under diagnosed or misdiagnosed altogether. Most of my clients find me when their kids are diagnosed with ADHD, and they start to wonder.... What a relief it can be to have an explanation for all the things you may have struggled with in your lifetime!
My clients are often the ones who have been bounced around, have been given many diagnoses, and have struggled to find help. By the time they reach me, many of my clients have all but given up hope that they can be helped. My clients are struggling with insomnia, PTSD, or dissociative identity disorder, or a combination of these issues. My clients are brave and strong and I am honored to work with them.
