Areas of Interests and Expertise

I am comfortable working with a wide variety of presenting concerns, with more extensive training, experience, and interest in working with the following:

  • Depression and anxiety 
  • Grief and bereavement; coping with life during or after a significant loss
  • Individuals who are therapists themselves 
  • Graduate students, particularly those in the fields of psychology, social work, and related studies
  • Individuals exploring their identity and values, often after a significant life transition or event 
  • Individuals who are grappling with stepping outside of conventions, whatever those are, and forging a own path that truly fits
  • Individuals wanting to slow down and take a kinder, less harried approach to life
  • High achievers struggling with self-care, self-acceptance, and self-compassion
  • Interpersonal/relational challenges, with a focus on how to foster meaningful connections
  • Women’s issues, particularly relating to the challenges of middle age (i.e, changes in identity and self-perception, clarifying and advocating for your own needs, honoring grief while celebrating growth, etc.)
  • Issues commonly experienced by those who may identify as sexual minorities, including:
    • LGBTQIA* individuals or those exploring their sexual or gender identity/orientation
    • Individuals who engage in polyamory and or ethical/consensual non-monogamy
    • Individuals in the kink community 
    • Individuals adjusting to the gender transition of a loved one

While I work well with many types of individuals, I work best with those who are willing to engage deeply in the therapeutic process, who are interested in understanding their own role in their challenges, and who are willing to make meaningful changes in the service of their longer term goals.
