Because my clients are in the LGBTQIA+ community, they are resilient, have big hearts and inspire me every day with their authenticity. They have also had their share of heartache and loss, and many live with anxiety, depression, trauma, panic, and dissociation. In my practice, we work with the whole complex self and learn to embrace difficult or unpleasant emotions while maximizing self appreciation and love. I am a collaborator and facilitator; we can explore gender, relationships, sex & more.
Whether you're exploring your gender identity for the first time, need support coming out, or looking for referrals for gender affirming medical care, I can help! My practice focuses on queer, trans and non-binary people, including youth ages 14+. I'm competent at helping clients with sexual and relational concerns (including non-monogamy, kink and BDSM) as well as gender identity and expression. I am a non-binary gender therapist with lived experience and interest in unique identities.
In addition to being part of the queer and trans community, I have worked specifically with LGBTQ+ clients for a range of concerns, from exploring gender identity and pronouns, to navigating dysphoria and discrimination, to identifying and celebrating what makes them feel most empowered. I have taken specific coursework during my graduate school training for trans and genderqueer therapy concerns. I love discussing ways to build chosen family and how to advocate for your needs.
There are countless ways to have fulfilling romantic, sexual and platonic relationships, and there is always something new to learn about our partners. I would love to help you with clearer communication, discussions about sex, exploring non-monogamy, negotiating boundaries, and more. During my Marriage, Couples and Family Therapy graduate program, I took specific courses in sex therapy and couples therapy, and I'm kink and BDSM inclusive. What unexpressed need could use your attention and care?
OCD is one of the most misunderstood diagnoses, with many clinicians having no training in treating OCD at all. Intrusive thoughts and compulsions can be isolating and exhausting, so it can be frustrating to struggle to find a therapist who really knows OCD. I have attended trainings and conferences with IOCDF to sharpen my skills with treating OCD. I use a combination of metacognitive therapy, mindfulness, and exposure & response prevention (including imaginal exposures) to treat symptoms.
