​​The focus of my practice is the LGBTQ community and Veterans, but I do see a variety of clients. I also work with addictions and court ordered therapy. I have background in anxiety, depression, PTSD, personality disorders and life transitions. I see clients as young as 3 and my oldest client has been 84. I write letters for gender confirming surgery and hormone replacement for the LGBTQ community. I truly care about the LGBTQ community and I am always looking for ways to help. I run a gender expressions psychotherapy group. This group helps to bring together the community and explore common issues with comfort and safety in mind.
