My Approach to Helping
I am a therapist in private practice specializing in LGBTQ+ issues, relationship counseling (couples, polyamory, BDSM dynamic, same-sex, etc.), and HIV education and advocacy. I have spent my career focused on LGBTQ+ issues, including coming out, self-acceptance, and gender identity issues.
I work with many transgender and non-binary clients to help them with every step of the transition process, including but not limited to: determining your gender identity, figuring out what steps you want to take, HRT education and approvals, referrals to medical and community resources, surgery approval letters, etc.
Working with couples is another passion of mine. I have extensive training in the Gottman method, and using that method I help clients to improve their communication, conflict resolution, intimacy and connection. I also help couples going through separation or divorce to work through things amicably and without hostility or animosity.
