The first step toward change is awareness. The second step is acceptance.
Working together, we design and establish a non-judgmental space for you to explore the possibilities your life holds. We honor your unique, whole self, the truths you carry, the light you hold, the passions that drive you and the connections you have with yourself and with others. Through cultivating a deeper awareness of who you are, and how you move through the world around you, you can uncover a life with less fear and more joy.
A significant focus of my practice has always been centered in LGBTQ communities and in those affected by trauma. Often the two go hand in-hand. Many of my clients are seeking to moderate or change their relationship with drugs or alcohol. Frequently, substance abuse is rooted in trauma. Using a harm reduction approach, the goals we set and nurture on this path offer opportunities to experience less frustration with the psychotherapy process leading to fewer disappointments and greater satisfaction along the way.
