For Individuals & Couples

See profile on Psychology Today.

Everyone: I work with folks who would like their perspective on life to change and grow in ways that supports greater well-being, empowerment, and a sense of balance. Life is constantly changing and presenting challenges, and I support people who are ready and willing to look honestly at themselves, to learn new skills, and to make changes that may initially be scary but – with my support and growth of your confidence – changes that are possible.

Couples: I also work with couples who wish to deepen their relationship, to be more present with one another, and to communicate more effectively. Whether or not you are experiencing challenges in your relationship, there is always room to grow intimacy – which not only may bring more joy and fulfillment in your relationship, it may also build skills and a sense of unconditional connection that can help to prevent or ameliorate the effects of challenges or misunderstandings in the future.

Challenges: My clients tend to be experiencing challenges with: anxiety, depression, body image, self-esteem, sexual orientation, gender identity, transitioning, relationships, communication, grief/loss, being highly sensitive, and adapting to change.

Modalities: I share with clients mindfulness, Gestalt Therapy, relational therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), existential perspective, social justice perspective, and a strengths-based approach.

Philosophy: My approach supports safe space for self-exploration and is truly integrative, working with awareness of mind, heart, body, and spirit. My work is informed by: 20 years of LGBT and women’s rights work; being a yoga and mindfulness teacher; ordination as an Interfaith minister; social work masters.

Rates: Because of my commitment to social justice, psychotherapy rates are on a sliding scale based on annual income.
