I view counseling/psychotherapy as a collaborative way for anyone who feels stuck to create movement in their life. Therapy can help clients increase connections and intimacy, develop communication skills, explore the connection between their past and present, and find balance. Use your therapist as a tool to examine your perceptions, assumptions, values, goals, thought/communication patterns, and above all, your relationships. I enjoy working with individuals and couples on the relationships that work best for them. I take a sex positive and LGTBQ supportive stance as I work with individual clients and couples. My childhood experience growing up between two households, one liberal LGTBQ and the other conservative Christian, lends itself to a unique therapeutic perspective built on firsthand experience. As I focused my graduate research on LGBTQ couples, I have both personal and practical experience in this area. I have written and will write recommendation letters for hormone therapy, and am happy to work with your medical provider to ensure best practices are followed. I can also provide referrals to physicians using Ingersoll Gender Center's Consult resources.
