Since graduation in 2003 I have been working in the field providing individual therapy to children, adolescents and adults with a huge range of presenting concerns.
Much of my work has been with survivors of trauma ranging from child abuse to domestic violence to street violence and beyond. My grounding in existential psychoanalytic therapy and training in various forms of cognitive therapy is particularly helpful for managing anxiety and distress related to the re-experiencing of trauma. Many of my favorite moments as a therapist occur in work with survivors of multiple traumas, helping them become open to a healthier happier future.
I have a passion for working with the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, genderqueer and questioning community and participate actively in these communities as an advocate. I am happy to work with people at all stages of their sexuality and gender identity development including adolescents facing gender/sexual identity questions and individuals seeking medical transition.
I also have extensive experience and knowledge in the area of chronic medical issues and disability. I am able to provide in-home appointments for clients who are unable to come to my office.
In addition to these specialties I am comfortable working with a variety of mood disorders such as depression and bipolar disorder, substance abuse issues, anxiety and stress management concerns.
