Pronouns: she, her, hers

Have you ever desired change from yourself but felt unclear where to begin?

Have you experienced loss in your life or want to explore what loss means to you?

I have worked with LGBTQIA+ and other sexual and gender minorities, including older adults in these communities, to excavate and explore meaning and how identifies inform our actions and the choices we make every day.

I see therapy as a space where you can share your story, uncover hidden meaning, and discover pathways to change that are satisfying for you. Are you ready to take the next step? Give me a call to learn more about how we can work together. I look forward to meeting you!
