[Not currently taking on new clients]
I specialize in working with LGBTQ+ adults and youth as they navigate self-image, coming out (to self and others), and transitioning. My doctoral research was conducted on positive psychology group interventions with transgender and non-binary youth, and providing gender affirming care is something I strive for in all my work. In addition to my work as a therapist, I have provided LGBTQ+ competency training to hundreds of individuals from in-patient behavioral health settings to U.S. Naval bases. I believe in using my privilege as a white-passing cis woman to create a platform for educating others in my field and it holds me accountable to be continually competent and up to date on recent advances in therapy with LGBTQ+ individuals.
