I am a therapist in private practice specializing in LGBTQ+ issues, relationship counseling (couples, polyamory, BDSM dynamic, same-sex, etc.), HIV education and advocacy, substance abuse/addiction, and trauma. I have extensive experience working with mood disorders (anxiety, depression, Bipolar Disorder, etc.) I spent five years working specifically with the military in a financial setting and come from a military family myself, and understand the struggles unique to being in the military or being a member of a military family. I have spent my career focused on LGBTQ+ issues, including coming out, self-acceptance, and gender identity issues. I write HRT letters, top surgery letters and GCS letters. I also work with parents of LGBTQ+ kids/teenagers. I offer discounted rates for police, firefighter and military personnel (retired/veteran/active), healthcare workers, and students.I am trained in Levels 1, 2, and 3 of The Gottman Institute’s Couples Therapy Training program, as well as their Treating Affairs & Trauma in Relationships and Couples & Addiction Recovery. I am trained in EMDR (eye movement desensitization reprocessing) for trauma, as well as several other trauma therapies.
