Do you often feel misunderstood, even excluded? Do you feel as though there are things about you that make it difficult for you to fit in? There can be a significant tension between who we really are, and who other people would like for us to be. Maybe I can help with that. I use a personalized, positive, practical approach taking elements of CBT, DBT and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. I have extensive experience working with people with anxiety disorders (including OCD) and borderline personality disorder. I believe that everyone can change, when they want to, and that problems have solutions. I am good at seeing the potential in others.

I specialize in working with the LGBTQQ community, transgendered people, people with sex addiction, and people in alternative relationships.

I fully support the LGBTQQ community

**I have recently expanded my practice and am currently accepting new clients**
