My Ideal Client

Sometimes trying too hard to get rid of or control our emotions backfire. Instead of trying to get rid of unwanted thoughts and feelings, I will help you learn to react differently to them so that you can keep your focus on living a meaningful and fulfilling life based on what’s important to you. We will work together to set meaningful goals to address your concerns–whether they relate to life transitions, depression, anxiety, body image, grief, job or academic stress, or gender & sexuality.

My Approach to Helping

I primarily provide individual therapy with late teens and adults. In addition to depression and anxiety, I also specialize in working with transgender and non-binary youth and their families on matters related to gender identity. Transgender clients and family members seeking assessment or counseling services can expect a safe space, and respectful, non-pathologizing, collaborative care. I am a Certified World Professional Association for Transgender Health Care (WPATH) GEI SOC7 Member. I have extensive training, research, and clinical experience working with transgender and gender-diverse youth, adults, and families.

Issues I Treat


  • Anxiety External link

    Many forms of anxiety do not respond to traditional talk therapy. Making progress often requires specialized, structured treatments that have been specifically developed for anxiety disorders. I received year-long training and supervision in treating anxiety and anxiety-related disorder with exposure.

  • LGBTQ Issues External link

    I am openly queer/gay. I practice from an Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) approach. This approach focuses on helping you learn to react differently to unwanted thoughts and feelings and live your life based what's important to you even if society pressures you to do otherwise. I have taught, published, and training frequently on working sexual and gender diversity.

  • Gender Identity External link

    My experience working with transgender individuals includes over 7 years of experience. I received training conducting evaluations within a multidisciplinary transgender health clinic. I am an active member of World Professional Association for Transition Health (WPATH) and a former WPATH board member. I am a WPATH Standards of Care 7 (SOC7) Certified Member and a WPATH SOC7 Certified Mentor and co-author of the Standards of Care 8.

  • Depression External link

    Some depression might go away on its own. This is not always the case and it frequently requires treatment. A major part of treatment will be to learn how to do activities that you care about anyway. Many times, behavior has to change before your mood or feelings will change. We’ll also learn strategies, skills, and for adopting new perspectives in order to relate to unwanted thoughts and feelings that show up for you in the context of your depression.
