What I Offer
Relationship therapy for couples and multi-partnered relationships
I believe that every individual is unique, and will work with you to identify and apply techniques designed to fit your specific style and needs. I use a collaborative approach to ensure that you are an active part of your therapeutic experience. I draw from a variety of theories, including supportive, holistic, practical, relational, and meditative practices. In therapy we can work together as you identify and embrace both your strengths and challenges and move towards getting to where you want to go in all aspects of life.
Couples and Multi-partnered Relationships
When working with relationships, I believe in supporting every person involved, as well as the relationship itself. I strive to assist you in acknowledging and addressing daily challenges, resolving stresses that build up over time, and moving forward to establish healthy communication and partnership in the future.
I offer assessments for a variety of situations
Emotional Support Animal Assessments
I believe that animals can be a wonderful addition to our lives. Both animals and humans can benefit from the support and nurture that develops from having an animal companion. Sometimes, connection with an animal can directly impact and support mental health needs and a support animal can be a part of an active care plan. I have training and experience in the process of evaluation, retrieving tags, and navigating the world with a companion animal. I can provide assessment and documentation to determine if you qualify for having a certified service or companion animal.
The system for immigration in the United States can be complex, and challenging. I provide evaluations and documentation in a variety of contexts to support people working on immigration status. I have been trained by HealthRight 360 and have provided numerous evaluations for more than a decade in a variety of contexts.
Gender Affirmation Documentation
Many systems (insurance, medical) require or request documentation from a psychologist as you embark on you gender journey. I embrace informed consent models for gender affirmation procedures, and can provide assessments and letters that adhere to WPATH guidelines and include any specific insurance or other system requirements.
