The only constant in life is change. I see my primary role as therapist to be acting as steward and support for a client as they grow and change. I strive to create a safe a supportive space where a client can explore their identity without fear of judgement. I also seek to support my clients during their road to recovery from past trauma, attachment issues, and relationship struggles. I have been working as a therapist trained in supporting folx identifying as LGBTQIA+ as well as trans and gender variant, and have had the honor of supporting teens and adults during their gender exploration and transition. I have exensive training and experience in this area, including training from the CHOP Gender Clinic and through the Mazzoni Center in Philadelphia. Seeking therapeutic support can be a frightening and stressful experience and I seek to be a grounding support person who can provide the feedback and tools necessary to survive and thrive during this process.
What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?
In our first session together we'll go over your history and what issues brought you to therapy
Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.
I have worked with many trans and gender variant folx who have been able to utilize their strengths as well as the therapeutic relationship to live authentically and fully. I have provided family support during transition, empowering clients to live their truth.
