I work with individuals in both short and longer term therapy. Having a consistent, regular time to meet on at least a weekly basis allows the safety necessary to do deeper work and facilitates growth. The therapy relationship itself has healing potential and relational difficulties that you experience in your life will likely arise also in the therapy relationship and this allows for the possibility that these can be understood and worked through in a productive manner.

I have worked as a licensed clinical social worker for over 30 years and have had both outpatient and inpatient mental health experience . I completed a two year advanced training program in psychodynamic psychotherapy over 20 years ago and continue to seek out consultation and training that is beyond the requirement for renewal of my license. I I am LGBTQ friendly and have training in transgender mental health through WPATH . I provide supervision for licensure for social workers and counselors.
