Great to meet you!

Hello! I am an openminded individual and love working with those othered by society, who have struggled with belongingness. Thus, I specialize in relationship issues (monogamous to polyamory spectrum), personality and mood disorders, LGTBQIA+ concerns (including gender transitioning), and the challenges of being a 'Gifted' Adult (2e, neurodivergent).

A bit about my approach to therapy

My focus is on creating an affirming space for you to be yourself and sort through the concerns you have. As we talk, I listen for opportunities to offer support and systems-based ideas that might spark insight for you. If you resonate with a particular idea, I will provide supporting materials for you to use between session. And as we explore what helps, and what doesn't, our growth-focused collaboration can help you and yours create meaningful change and a more authentic life.

What you can expect from our first session

From the first to the last session, we will explore your mental process and look for change opportunities, starting with the more immediate concerns. If you are seeking short term solutions to pressing issues, I have a tool belt full of cognitive behavioral and trauma informed techniques to help jump start change, but if you want to stick around to explore the possibility of more lasting change in your life, we can dig into your chronic issues from a systemic approach. Let's get started!
