I work with clients from a non-judgmental, compassionate, yet practical approach to help you achieve your goals. I believe that therapy works best in collaboration with you as your own expert. We can work together to explore ways in which your current thoughts and actions are not resulting in your optimal desires. I continue to work in Community Mental Health with expertise in the LBGT population, HIV/AIDS and crisis intervention. I work with a wide range of sexuality issues including coming out, alternative relationships and gender identity.

I also have an extensive background working with pets and offer support around grief and loss and other pet relationships. Many people's lives can be enhanced with support from their animal companions and I offer support to help maximize benefit for both you and your pet.
