Hello

Welcome!

 I specialize in LGBTQAI+ therapy and I have additional specialization in working with gender and identity issues and members of the Transgender and NB communities. I know how often the intersections between issues like systemic oppression, identity issues, depression, anxiety, self-esteem, aging, trauma, personal isolation, relationships, intimacy, sex, HIV, and survivor issues can affect our lives and influence how we take in new experiences.


 I offer a safe, gentle, non-judgmental and compassionate space for my clients to find solid ground in the midst of overwhelming emotions, heal from old wounds and traumas, explore ways to break old cycles and create more pleasurable, satisfying and healthy lives and relationships.


I offer culturally sensitive, trauma informed, identity-affirming individual, family & relationship therapy from a social justice informed perspective. My waiting room is child friendly and private. My office is on the 2nd floor, but the building has an elevator.
