Message to clients

Finding a space that feels safe and comfortable, where you can begin to face the things that are standing in your way, can be challenging. In a world that can feel so chaotic and in crisis, it is important to carve out the time and space to take good care of yourself--you don't have to do that alone. In addition to clinical expertise, I bring to my sessions warmth, good humor, hope, and belief in the changes that can be.

LGBTQIA, gender, & sexuality topics - Exploring topics of sexuality, gender, and identity; coping with discrimination and oppression; navigating relationship, family, and cultural challenges
