My practice is focused on working collaboratively with clients struggling with their sexuality, intimate relationships, and life transitions. Types of life transitions that I commonly help with include coming out, exploring non-traditional relationships, starting or ending a relationship, work/career changes, and moving. I work together with you to create change out of ongoing struggles. I want to create a safe and judgment-free space for you to explore lifestyles and desires - both traditional and outside the box.

More Info About My Practice
Along with issues related to sexuality, relationships, and transition, many of my clients also experience anxiety, depression, shame, and family of origin issues which decrease their quality of life. I can guide you in exploring ineffective patterns, expanding emotional awareness, and learning new skills to increase connections with others. I also lead non-psychotherapeutic workshops to help individuals explore sexual, relationship, and gender identity. I am honored to be with clients as they gain acceptance of themselves.
Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist
Not every therapist is the right fit for every client. We all have different personalities, comfort levels, and growth points which can be triggered, soothed, or move us forward in our journeys. The most important aspect to picking a therapist is the client's own comfort with the therapist. In line with this, I encourage clients to think about whether they would like to continue with me after the first session. Along with personality and comfort fit, it is helpful for clients to consider whether a therapist has training or specialization in the areas that need addressing. If a client's issue is related to finishing college and entering the workforce, they may not be best served by seeing an addiction specialist. The therapeutic space is functioning well if clients feel free to ask questions, express concerns, and decide what works for them!
Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance
One of the hardest things we do emotionally is allow our vulnerable sides to be seen by another - especially a stranger. I often feel humbled by the courage my clients show through bringing their whole selves into therapy. In order for growth to happen, we need safety and acceptance. Therefore, our work together will be most effective if you and I create a genuine and trusting relationship. I welcome your feedback - both emotional and practical - as a way to move both our relationship and the therapeutic process forward.
