The first step is often the hardest part of beginning therapy, and you already took it.
Every relationship comes with its fair share of issues. Navigating the complexities of life together is hard enough, but when you start to feel regularly distressed or hopeless, about your relationship, it may be time to seek professional help. No matter what your issues seem to stem from (disagreements about money, sex, stress, chronic illness, mental illness, infidelity, trust, emotional distance, parenting etc.), if you and your partner are arguing more frequently and experiencing feelings of resentment or contempt, it is likely that there are some underlying problems to address. Because many problems in relationships are a result of communication issues, a qualified mental health therapist can teach you to find new ways of talking to each other to help you find your way back to common ground.

In order to serve clients with a broad range of diagnoses, I provide therapeutic interventions tailored to each individual case. Whether you are a couple looking to improve your relationship, or an individual hoping to gain insight and coping skills, your goals can be addressed.
My clients have often struggled to work well with therapists who don't understand who they are, who they love, and how they live their lives. I work with queer, trans, gender non-conforming, kinky, ethically non-monogamous individuals who want to get to work in therapy, not spend sessions educating their therapist about their identities or being questioned about their choices.
Greetings! I have 5 yrs of experience working with diverse, adult populations facing mental health challenges. I've been on both sides of "the therapy couch", as a survivor/thriver with Bipolar I Disorder & as a LMHC. I completed my internship assisting survivors of Domestic Violence & have a great deal of knowledge about Healthy Relationships vs Unhealthy ones. I am a committed, reliable & hard worker. It is a privilege to be able to help others navigate the curveballs life will throw!
