Dealing with the daily struggles of life doesn't have to be faced alone. Focusing on self-growth and resiliency leads to tangible changes in our lives and fosters a mind-body connection. Whether you want to focus on a specific issue or seek proactive change in your life, seeking help is the first step. I'm here to guide that change while helping us focus on measurable results to improve your life. Please scroll to the bottom of the page and enter your contact information to have a conversation.
My clients often start seeing me when their life feels chaotic and overwhelming. It may be difficult to focus or manage their relationships, much less their daily life! As we struggle with these things, I know that it can even be tough to start therapy. I want my clients to know that I’m not pushy with knowing all the details right away. I know you’ll share when you’re ready.
Are you in crisis? Feeling stuck? Maybe some event has sent you tumbling. No matter why you’re seeking help now, I’m sure you just want to feel better -- less confused, sad, anxious, guilty or scared. I can support and help you in making changes that will lead to a more fulfilling and satisfying life. Drawing on my extensive “real world” experience in healthcare administration, training & coaching, I bring a grounded approach that will help you get from where you are now to where you want to be.
If you are struggling with chronic anger, unstable relationships, poor self-esteem, or feeling out of control with your emotions, counseling can help you reduce the suffering that comes with these issues. I can help by providing you with the specific tools needed to overcome your pain. Asking for help can be hard, and at the same time it is the first step toward regaining control of your life. Through individual counseling, you can move from surviving to thriving.
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.
The climate crisis is having an impact on human mental health and emotional wellbeing. You might be addressing it head-on in your work or activism, or maybe you're feeling the personal effects of it. Perhaps you're stressed about how to relate to family members about climate change, or feeling worried about how your life is being, or will be, affected. There are all kinds of ways we're emotionally affected by climate change. Climate-aware therapy can help.
I specialize in couples work, helping partners to find their way back to each other. If conversations with your partner seem to go in circles, and you have the same argument endlessly, I imagine you're feeling frustrated to say the least, maybe even despairing and panicked. You're wondering "are we going to make it?" Therapy offers a safe opportunity to slow it all down and to learn more about your emotions and clarify your needs. Together, we work to rebuild closeness, security and confidence.
I work with adults of all ages looking to exist more fully as themselves. I am especially passionate about and driven to provide space for LGBTQIA+ adults exploring identity, adjustments, and changes. Clients I love holding space for are the ones feeling stuck and curious about understanding more of what has gotten, and continues to get, in the way of living the life they want to be living. My clients may have experienced traumatic events that shape the way they see themselves and the world.
Many of my clients have no previous experience in therapy. Others have had limited, often negative, experiences. Most hold one of more of the following identities: they are men, they are second-generation immigrants and/or they are queer. They might not have seen themselves represented well in mental health spaces. They also might not have been taught how to express their feelings openly and may view their emotions as a weakness and as something to fear.
The couples, partners, and individuals I work with have various presenting concerns and intersecting identities, but many of them are Latinx/Latina, polyamorous, kinky, neurodivergent, LGBTQIA+ and/or QTPOC. I am passionate about supporting folks who have experienced personal, systemic, sexual, and relational difficulties due to traumatic life events (including systemic oppression) with somatic modalities and techniques to help increase regulation, pleasure, intimacy, ease, and sexual wellness.
My clients come from all races, sexual and faith orientations, occupations and genders. Our work together may include relationship issues, infidelity and affairs, anxiety, stress, depression, sex therapy, out of control sexual behavior and more. My approach to therapy is authentic, relational, and trust based. I am also a sex positive therapist who is both comfortable and competent in sex, sexual dysfunction, BDSM and kink.
You feel alone in your relationship. You want to reconnect but don't know how. Your ability to communicate with one another needs a tune up. You are in pain, stressed, and unsure what to think about the future of your relationship. Your inner voice is pushing you to focus on yourself as a means to work toward deeper connections with friends and partners. I work best with folx exploring gender, relationships, and sex therapy related topics (desire discrepancy, sexual function, loss of connection)

I specialize in working with clients who have experienced trauma, grief/loss, sexual health, LGBTQ+, anxiety and depression.

I enjoy working with clients on healing childhood trauma, processing and integrating past experiences, boundaries, communication, learning to trust yourself and honor your needs, quieting the inner critic, and finding ways to tap into joy and play again. I celebrate and honor the unique needs of individuals who experience or have been impacted by systemic inequity and oppression, especially 2SLGBTQIAA+ folx, the Black community, people with disabilities, and the neurodivergent community.
Are you struggling with stress? Are trying to find balance again? My goal is to help you discover your strengths and reconnect with the person that you are.

Depression can be a devastating experience, especially for someone with strong personal values and big life goals. As a licensed clinical psychologist and depression treatment specialist, I can help you cut through the fog of depression, reconnect with your values, and regain a sense of confidence, purpose, and direction.
Does it sometimes feel like you’re trying to pour from any empty cup? Do you find it difficult to control your worry, or haven’t been feeling like your normal self? I specialize in working with stressed college students who want to learn how to manage anxiety and tame overwhelming emotions, people who want to explore gender identity or who need support on their transition journey, and geeks of all kinds.
