My major specializations are Anxiety, Grief, LGBT, Gender-Variance, Parents of LGBT/Gender-Variance. After initial assessment, I may teach a basic breathing/relaxation exercise, which is especially helpful for anxiety. We will look at the causes of emotional distress and address them. I use a variety of methods, including EMDR and EFT, to help release tensions and past traumas and upsets which, even if small can cause a lot of anxiety and pain in the present. (For grief, I also offer Repair & Reattachment Grief Therapy). I am strongly LGBTQ-affirming and available to help with coming out, transitioning, family and social adjustment, etc.

More Info About My Practice

Sessions are strictly confidential. Sessions by phone or Skype may be available in certain cases. When seeking a psychotherapist, you will, of course, want someone who is qualified and ethical. But beyond that, you will want to know if the therapist has had success in working with your issue. Perhaps most importantly, you will look for a good "fit" between you and the therapist, someone you feel comfortable with and who will not judge you. You are welcome to phone or email with any questions or concerns.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

Of course I have studied to obtain professional tools and methods to help people. But because I have gone through many life stages, I also relate to many people's issues. This means I am in no position to judge you, and I do not. It also means I have a certain understanding for what others are going through because of my own experience.
