Growing up and feeling different from one's peers and family with regards to sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression can feel alienating and isolating.  Some may have had more positive experiences than others.  I provide a caring space to talk about these experiences and the effect they've had on your life.  Positive, not so positive, and anywhere in between.

I have found that developing an affirming LGBTQ identity can provide a richer lens through which to see one's world.

My work with the LGBTQ community includes work with: 


Individual Adults

Couples and Partnerships


Parents of LGBTQ teens
