Introduction:
We all face times in our life when we need someone to walk beside us, help us think through a problem, or face a challenge with us. These can be times when we feel overwhelmed, sad, worried, tired, afraid or lonely. We may be having a problem at work, in a relationship with a loved one, partner or spouse, or with changes in our lives. If you are dealing with depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, loss or grief, I can work with you to discover new ways of thinking and acting that bring first relief, and then growth, change and balance to your life. If you are facing hostility from family and friends or confusion about your own feelings, therapy can help you find your inner strength and increase your ability to deal with stress.
I specialize in working with members of Bisexual, Transgender, Lesbian, Gay, Queer (LGBTQ) and Polyamorous, Kink and Sex-positive communities to help them overcome internal and external barriers, know themselves, and live life to the fullest. I especially enjoy collaborating with people in alternative relationship structures to help them build strong, lasting connections with their partners while maintaining their individuality.
