My Approach to Helping

*Immediate Availability!*

As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I offer individual, relationship, couples, marriage, and family therapy. I am a queer identifying therapist and understand how important it is to have access to knowledgable and affirming care for all. I am proud to help provide a safe and supportive environment with the additional appropriate professional training in working with gender, sexual, affectional, and relationship structure minorities (and their loved ones) at any stage in the journey. I can provide mental health assessment and documentation requirements needed for gender confirming medical care, gender marker changes, etc., from an informed consent model approach.

My areas of focus include, but are not limited to: gender and sexual, affectional and relationship structure diverse communities, , intimate relationship challenges, infidelity, family therapy, trauma processing, sex and kink positive communities, and working with those struggling with anxiety; depression; stress management; conflict resolution; communication skill building and more.

Finding the right therapist for you is a key part of this process, so I happily offer a free consult to help with that first step.

I\'m looking forward to hearing from you!

More Info About My Practice

I believe the relationship between client and therapist is the foundation for healing, so I do my best to provide a therapeutic space that is safe and free of judgment for all diverse individuals, relationships, and families.

I have a laid back personality and maintain an active, direct, and authentically engaging therapy space. I plan to be alongside you as a supportive teammate to help work through the challenges. My personal therapy approach is attachment based and integrated. I value therapy that evolves to meet each person's unique needs. I am collaborative, process experiential, and humanistic, with a systemic lens.

Gender-Affirming Therapeutic Services
I welcome all diverse gender identities and expressions at any stage of the journey.
I will work alongside you to help provide mental health assessment and documentation requested or required for any reason, including access to gender confirming medical care. As a member of the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH), I take pride in offering therapy services for gender diverse individuals, relationships, families, and for their loved ones of all ages. I support the Informed Consent Model for care and will work as a facilitator in your process. I am also willing and excited to work collaboratively with other affirming practitioners to help along your journey.
