My Approach

As a client, you will find that I use a compassionate approach that recognizes your authenticity and is often direct yet empathetic. Together, we will come to understand your individual values and hopes for your life. We will use those values to guide the positive changes you want to see in your life. Achieving personal goals are important to my clients. We will find incremental steps to achieve those goals. My clients often need and want to process difficult feelings and emotions and our sessions are a safe space to do that. I use a combination of solution focuses therapy, mindful self-compassion, cognitive behavioral therapy and existential therapy as well as other techniques to help you become your authentic you. I also practice from a secular, non-religious perspective while still being able to honor your personal belief systems.

I have experience in helping people who identify in all sexual orientations. In the both the past and present, my experience includes treating clients with severe depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, grief, as well as over nine years of experience working with children and adolescents.

I am a member of WPATH (World Professional Association for Transgender Health) and am WPATH GEI SOC v7 certified and follow their V7 standards of care. I also support the model of informed consent when working with the transgender and gender expansive community.

I am also a public speaker and educator on topics about the LGBTQIA community and gender identity. I have spoken, among others at THEA, (Transgender Health and Education Alliance) and I am a previous speaker at The Philadelphia Trans Wellness Conference, Gender Odyssey, The National Trans Health Conference in 2018 and USPATH in 2019.
