About Me

I have many years of experience working with individuals, couples, and relationships of all types in collaborative, strength based psychotherapy.

I support people who are experiencing distress, whether as a consequence of childhood experiences that have been unresolved, or as a result of membership in communities that have not been supported by the larger society. I have experience working with people who are members of the LGBTQ+ community; people who identify as neurodivergent, including those who may be self diagnosed; parents who are looking for support in nurturing their neurodivergent children; people in the secular homeschooling community; and people who are working hard to stay safe from covid exposure and struggle to find support for those choices. 

I support loving relationships of all kinds.  I work hard to understand the points of view of each person, and together we sort out the communication patterns so each can understand the other. I am skilled in untangling the repetitive knots that people can become stuck in when conflicts remain unresolved. Counseling can also help when there are important decisions that need to be made and  those involved have been unable to move forward. Relationship counseling is often the best choice that people can make when they want to live a happy and fulfilling life together. 

I encourage interested people to have an initial conversation with me to see if they can get a sense of whether I am a good fit as a therapist for your unique needs. If you are interested in a particular way of working, I will honestly tell you if I have training and experience in that modality. I have years of experience in couples/relationship counseling, trauma work, EMDR, and IFS. I have a special interest in and appreciation for working with people whose nervous systems are not neurotypical. 

Most important is finding something that will work for the particular client. Unlike some therapists who have particular recipes that they use with most or all clients, I tailor the work to the needs that the client brings. I look forward to working with each new client, because I know that therapy can produce remarkable relief.
