My Approach to Helping

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**
