I value developing strong relationships and connections with clients who require a safe place to explore a variety of goals and ways to manage and overcome often painful challenges.

 

In addition to removing road blocks, I also work with specific challenges that are present for LGBTQIA folks and people with disabilities.

 

For LGBTQIA clients, our work includes dealing with the effects of homo-, bi- and transphobia, exploring the gender spectrum, and transitioning genders.

 

For people with disabilities, we work together to manage challenges including ableism, accommodations, chronic pain, and illness.

In addition to these populations, I have worked with teens for over 25 years and specialize in adolescent therapy. See my Teens and Experience pages for more information.
