My experience with therapy began as a client. When therapy helped me, I realized I wanted to help others. I believe in therapy. I know it helped me, and believe it can also help others. I know it can be challenging to make that first call to a therapist. Will they understand? Will it work? I have been there, and I had to meet with several therapists before I found the right one. Your relationship with your therapist is vital for the effectiveness of therapy. For that reason, I offer a free initial session. I don't want you to suffer a financial loss if we are not a good fit.
I collaborate with the client to identify therapeutic goals and find ways to achieve those goals. I endeavor to create a judgment-free space where clients can safely explore their lives and goals. I am honored to be a part of this process, and to observe my clients embracing their inherent worth and value. We all deserve to thrive in a life we have designed based on our goals. I strive to help every client achieve this opportunity.

More Info About My Practice
Every relationship is different, and what works for one couple might not work for another. How a relationship is defines is up to the relationship's participants. Those definitions may change over time, and resolving differences arising from these changes can be a goal in therapy.
Couples often seek therapy because they struggle with communication. What I often find is that they communicate well, but don't like the message and want the other person to change.
Couples therapy centers around clarifying the messages each partner sends. Couples typically have similar goals: experiencing less pain and conflict, increasing pleasure and joy. Each couple must define what pleasure and joy look like, and how to accomplish both goals.
LGBTQ Affirmative Therapy:
LGBTQ affirmative therapy is not neutral. It does not just tolerate LGBTQ people, but accepts and celebrates their value in our culture. This value is critical for effective therapy, since it can counteract the many years of hostility LGBTQ people encounter within a heterosexist and homophobic culture. Shame and self-hatred are common in a homophobic culture, and may be expressed in many ways. Therapy can help.
The healing process of therapy transforms self-loathing into compassion. It helps you work through your pain instead of turning it into suffering through avoidance, helping you become empowered.
