ABOUT THERAPY SERVICES
In emotionally-focused couple's therapy sessions, we will work together to identify your relationship strengths and where you get stuck in patterns of disconnection, and then take steps to create a more secure bond in your relationship. You will learn to express your innermost feelings and thoughts in a way that will help you connect with your partner in an emotionally accessible, responsive and engaged way. I love working with LGBTQIA+ couples, interracial couples, couples navigating new parenthood, and couples in which one or both partners identify as neurodivergent.
In individual sessions, we will not start with a predetermined idea of "good mental health." We will discuss what good mental health means to you and your best hopes for therapy, and then work together toward your preferred future. I integrate evidence-based approaches, including attachment-based, LGBTQ-affirmative, solution-focused, narrative and cognitive behavioral therapies, to engage in collaborative dialogue. I believe you are the expert in your experience and aim to identify what is already working in your life and how you can do more of it (and less of what's not).
Adolescence is a time of rapid physical, sexual, social, cognitive and emotional changes that can induce anxiety in teens and parents alike. In teen therapy sessions, we hold open and affirming conversations about emerging issues and foster the confidence, coping skills and independence teens need to lead a healthy young adult life. I love providing a safe space for teens to explore their gender, sexuality and individuality.
Consensual non-monogamy means that all partners in a relationship consent to expanded monogamy or polyamory. If you practice CNM or are considering opening up a relationship, we can work together to ensure that your relationships are healthy and safe, and work through issues of jealousy, sex, time, family issues and more.
As a queer-identifying therapist, I believe LBGTQ affirmative therapy is helpful for issues related to gender and sexuality. We will embrace your intersectional identities, advance your therapeutic goals and address any negative impact that homophobia, transphobia and heterosexism have on your life.
