About Me

My professional mission is to promote psychological healing and foster a safe space for people to address their needs. In the first meeting with a patient, their journey toward fulfillment begins with envisioning their best hopes for therapy to provide a roadmap of the steps that need to be taken to realize their desired future. I collaborate with patients to construct highly individualized and uniquely effective solutions for their problems by amplifying their inherent strengths and positive resources. Using a direct, yet empathetic style, I approach each person with authenticity, curiosity and compassion.
In service to women’s health patients who are receiving obstetrics and gynecology services, I offer individual and couples/family therapy as well as sex therapy. I also facilitate clinical hypnosis for pain and write hormone replacement therapy and gender-confirming surgery referral letters in accordance with WPATH standards of care. I am deeply committed to helping patients heal and thrive as they cope with sexual concerns and reproductive challenges, such as infertility, high-risk pregnancy, postpartum depression/anxiety, pregnancy/infant loss and menopause. I am also passionate about providing mental health services to transgender patients and offer a safe, therapeutic environment where they feel affirmed, respected and appreciated for their courage and resolve.
