As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LICSW), I provide compassionate and affirming psychotherapy for individuals, couples, families and adolescents. I have special expertise helping folks who feel dismissed based on their identity or life experiences.
Our culture makes it difficult for many folk, including lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender folk, People of Color, and women. It can also be particularly hard on men who show “weakness.” In therapy, I strive to create a space where you can feel safe speaking of any concern or thought. I won’t judge you, think that you’re crazy nor immoral. Together we find ways to enhance your creative thinking, express authentic emotions, and make effective actions. We explore your life and the ways you feel you can change.
Self-acceptance and positive self-regard are possible. No matter what hardship you are experiencing, you can learn to love yourself and grow.
