I believe that healing is only possible in a trusting relationship. I am committed to creating and maintaining such a safe, caring, and empathic space in which you can be vulnerable and honest during individual therapy. In the absence of any pretense or judgment, you will feel completely seen, heard, and understood. As time goes on and our therapeutic relationship strengthens, you will feel safe to disclose the thoughts, fears, and concerns that you’ve hidden from yourself and others.
Many of our most inexplicable and debilitating behaviors and beliefs stem from a childhood in which emotions and needs were dismissed, minimized, or ignored. These feelings become rooted in shame and are carried into adulthood, causing you to feel inadequate, unlovable, or broken. Mental health counseling can help unpack those emotions and work toward healing.
When you are dealing with the stresses of addiction, anxiety, anger management, health issues, or depression, you most likely feel overwhelmed, frustrated, confused, and lose hope that you can just relax, feel good about yourself, and eventually achieve your desired goals.
Individual therapy is highly effective, not only because the methods of treatment are geared towards helping you cope with your stress, but also because you get the opportunity to talk to the person who is dealing with your problems. The good thing about talking with a mental health therapist is that he or she has your best interests in mind. As a result, your therapy will most likely be more effective and your recovery will take place at a quicker pace.
My ultimate goal is that my clients feel seen, heard, and known during our time together. A therapist is a witness who can mirror your deepest thoughts, feelings, and concerns in a safe and nonjudgmental space. Whenever we meet, you will find an empathetic, listening ear.

I have been working with the LGBTQ+ community for over 25 years, providing clinical services to clients. I am very comfortable and have knowledge of the community’s challenges and history. It is critical that you feel safe and accepted in a non-judgmental space as you work through issues concerning yourself, your partner or your family. I will provide that space through personal therapy.
