How do I know if we'll be a good fit?

That is a great question - and an extremely important one! Decades of counseling research has proven that the relationship between client and counselor is one of the most influential aspects of how effective therapy will be for the client. After all, how much weight would you give a conversation with someone you trusted vs. someone you didn't? 

I sincerely hope we are a good fit, but the reality is is that I am not everyone's cup of tea - and that is okay! I would much rather refer you to a counselor who I think can provide what you need instead of trudging through sessions where neither of us is seeing any benefit. 

I may be the therapist you've been looking for if you:

  • like to laugh

  • are ready to put in the work

  • prefer a laid-back office setting 

  • are open to a wide range of treatment modalities and coping skill sets

  • want yourself or something in your life to CHANGE

  • are intrigued by working with a unique professional who sometimes uses swear words, has tattoos and a nose piercing, despises the word "normal," believes May 4th is an official holiday, and considers 8 pm  a desired bedtime

I have experience with:

  • Depressive Disorders

  • Anxiety Disorders

  • Post-traumatic Stress Disorder

  • Complex Trauma

  • Self-harm

  • Suicidal Thoughts and Attempts

  • Break-ups and Divorce 

  • Affair Recovery

  • Problematic Sexual Behaviors

  • Gender Identity

  • Gender Expression

  • Sexuality

  • Differing Sexual Desires in Partnerships

  • Polyamory and Non-traditional Relationships

  • Kink & BDSM
