I provide therapy to individuals, families, and relationships of various configurations. Some of my focus areas include the following:
Transgender and gender variant/non-conforming people: One of my main areas of focus is working with transgender and gender variant/non-conforming people and their partners and families. I enjoy helping people through all aspects of identity development, social and medical transition, and navigating life as a trans and/or gender variant/non-conforming person.
I understand that people come out and discover their gender identity at various points across the life span. Because everyone enters therapy at a unique point in their process, I take the time to get to know and understand you as we work together to come up with the right plan for you. I follow your lead in determining what steps to take and at what pace to take them. I stay up to date on the latest legal and medical resources available to trans and gender non-conforming people.
LGBTQ+: In addition to working with trans and gender non-conforming people, I also enjoy working with other members of the LGBTQ+ community. No matter where you are in your process of identity development or living your life, I understand the unique concerns of LGBTQ+ people.
Teenagers: Early in my career, I spent four years doing in-home family therapy with struggling adolescents. Adolescence can be a challenging time for the whole family. I enjoy the opportunity to help teenagers learn more effective communication and coping skills as well as working with parents on understanding and engaging with their teens more effectively.
People with disabilities: Prior to becoming a therapist, I spent six years doing direct service with people who have developmental and physical disabilities. That experience gave me valuable insight into working with people with disabilities. While I am new to the Boulder area, I strive to stay informed about local resources available to people living with disabilities.
