Practice Description:
Due to the impacts of COVID-19, I am offering in-office and teletherapy options, but strongly encourage teletherapy at this time*
*For in-office sessions I follow the CDC guidelines for cleaning and screening procedures, social distancing protocol, and provide hand sanitizer & masks if needed.

I offer individual, intimate relationship, & family therapy. I am proud to help provide the safe and supportive environment, with the appropriate professional training, as a Gender and Sexual/Affectional Minority (GSM) inclusive therapist.

My personal therapy approach is attachment based and integrated. I value therapy that evolves to meet each person's unique needs. I am collaborative, process experiential, and humanistic, with a systemic lens.

My formal training includes a Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy with a specialization in LGBTQ+ Couples and Family Therapy. I work to maintain a current and knowledgable practice by actively pursuing my training and education.

My areas of focus include working with:

gender and sexual/affectional minorities


intersectionalities (intersecting identities) and minority stress

intimate relationships

family therapy

communication and conflict resolution

trauma processing

sex and kink positivity

anxiety and depression
