Are you a lesbian, queer, bisexual, or transgender woman who struggles with shame, self-criticism, stigma, or low self-worth? Difficulties related to shame and self-criticism are distressing and can prevent you from living the life you want.

No matter how long you have been feeling this way, there are practical skills, tools, and exercises that can help free you from the patterns of shame and self-criticism, and allowing you to replace those feelings with more healthful ways of relating to yourself.

You are more than your struggles and worst experiences, and caring for your well-being goes beyond a focus on mental illness and trauma. The challenges you are experiencing with regard to shame and self-criticism are not your fault, and your care and well-being is worth the personal investment in yourself.

You can choose the type of person you want to be, and my compassion-focused approach to therapy will assist you in taking the steps needed to make your choice a reality. Personal transformation is possible, and now is that time to start your journey to liberate yourself from the ways shame and self-criticism holds you back.

About Me 

I am experienced serving women, LGBQ and transgender/gender nonbinary clients. As a lesbian and transgender woman, I understand the value in seeing a therapist with a shared identity.

I provide video-based online therapy to clients throughout California and New York State.
