My Approach to Helping

Are you questioning your gender identity or sexual orientation? Are you wondering how to "come out" or to transition to a different gender? Are you a parent of a child who's struggling with their gender identity or sexual orientation? Are you wondering if you will be able to find a therapist who understands what it is like for a LGBT individual and their loved ones? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you'll want to talk with me. I work with children/teens, their families, adults, and couples who are Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Questioning (LGBTQ). Whether you are seeking therapy related to your LGBTQ status or not, regardless of if you identify as LGBTQ, and whatever challenges have brought you to therapy, I am here to listen and to help you reach your full potential.

More Info About My Practice

I provide LGBTQ affirming therapy. This means that my framework and approach is one of acceptance and acknowledgement of diversity; I challenge stereotypes, and I advocate for all LGBTQ people and their relationships. However, this does not mean that you need to identify as LGBTQ, or that you are seeking therapy related to your LGBTQ status, in order to benefit from my therapeutic services.

As a therapist, I listen to my clients and assist them in achieving results. Together we will identify your strengths, which will assist you in achieving the goals of what you want to accomplish - i.e. what brought you to therapy. It may not be quick, and it may not be easy, but we will focus on solutions and get you to where you want and need to be.
