Asking for help can be very difficult, as it may be emotionally challenging to admit that you are vulnerable. However, therapy can be a very rewarding experience, and picking a therapist is the first step on this journey. Using collaborative techniques tailored to meet your needs, I aim to provide a safe, comfortable, and mindful space where you can step back and take the time to find the solutions that you are seeking.
I work with individuals, families, and couples on navigating relationship changes, answering questions about parenting, and helping families and individuals work through traumatic experiences, either in real-time or long after the event has passed. I treat individuals and families as parts of a system and help them to improve communication, resolve situational concerns, and enhance feelings of well-being for all family members.

More Info About My Practice

I specialize in working with parents and children regarding concerns about sexual identity and sexual development in any member of the family. I aim to help families connect with each other regarding emerging sexual identities or changes in existing sexual identities of either children or caregivers.

I have certificates in "Social Work Practice and Trauma" and "Childhood Sexual Abuse."

Please call for a free first consultation to see if we are a good fit for each other.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

Childhood and adolescence are the time that we are forming our sense of self as well as seeking out connections with others. This is also the time that we are beginning to feel and experiment with our sexual identities and preferences. This can be confusing for both young people and their caregivers. I specialize in working with youth and their families on concerns regarding sexual development. What is "normal"? What is acceptable and not acceptable behavior? What sexual values or hangups do I have that I might pass down to my children, on purpose or unwittingly? I am happy to work with your family on sorting through all of your questions or concerns regarding your children's sexual development or changes with your own sexual identities.

Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance

Therapy is a relationship between the client and the therapist, wherein the therapist helps the client find their own inner-wisdom. Without some level of trust and comfort between the therapist and the client, the relationship and the work fall flat. It is OK to feel a little awkward at first, after all, this is a new relationship. However, if you are still not feeling comfortable with your therapist after a few weeks, you may want to evaluate if this is the right person to help you. Don't be shy about having a conversation with your therapist; this time is about meeting YOUR needs. It could be that you have a mental block in place that can be worked through and build your therapeutic relationship, or it could be that this relationship is not right for you. You have the right to a therapist that you feel you can trust.
