I specialize in marriage, relationship, individual, and family therapy. I work with adults, teenagers, and children.

Appointments can be scheduled on a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly basis. Priority is given to weekly clients for scheduling times and dates. I see clients by video, online, or teletherapy counseling sessions. Phone sessions are also available to established clients.

My approach is both directive and accepting. I am a client-centered therapist. I can help solve problems that can take years to resolve on their own by teaching new skills and giving homework to practice in between sessions. At the same time I allow clients to dictate the goals, pace, and intensity of their counseling sessions. I don't fix people. I look for what is going right and help you or your relationship do more of it.

My expertise include working with clients with ADHD, anxiety, behavioral issues, career counseling, chronic illness, codependency, coping skills, depression, developmental disorders, divorce, emotional disturbance, grief, infertility, infidelity, internet addiction, learning disabilities, life coaching, life transitions, men's issues, parenting, peer relationships, relationship issues, school issues, self-esteem, spirituality, stress, and trauma / PTSD.

I am a bisexual, gay, lesbian, open relationships, non-monogamy, queer, transgender, racial justice, and cancer allied therapist.
