I believe therapy is meant to be experimental, experiential, and collaborative. Carl Jung said, “The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed.” Insights in therapy have the potential to be challenging and painful, and my job is to help you through them. A spirit of non-judgment, empathy, directness, and sense of humor defines my style. My goal is to assist clients in connecting to their authentic Selves, for the purpose of overcoming negative thinking, self-destructive patterns, and unfulfilling relationships.
I am passionate about helping people on the LGBTQ+ continuum achieve a wholeness and personhood not mirrored by a cis/heteronormative society. Areas of work include: trauma, coming out, gender identity, HIV/AIDS, sexual compulsivity, alcoholism/addiction recovery, codependency, and intersections of cultural/racial/ethnic identity.
