Online Psychotherapy Services
Major changes can challenge the connection and communication in any relationship.
Your partner coming out to you or learning more about their identity
The dynamics in your relationship are changing–roles, practices, partners, etc
You are transitioning to a new stage of life and it’s impacting your relationship
Your work life or family life are changing
Sometimes these changes can feel manageable, but it’s easy to get stuck. We can all get swept up in that fear and anxiety loop. What does this mean for my relationship? What does this mean about me? Does my partner love and want to be with me? Am I enough? Am I too much? Do I feel seen? How will we get through this?
Relationship therapy can help you strengthen your communication in a way that builds a more secure connection between you. Life is full of uncertainty. Relationships can feed the chaos and fear or they can be a safe harbor in the storm. We all mess up and hurt each other sometimes, especially in moments of stress and uncertainty. We can also repair harm and build a stronger relationship in the process.
Relationship therapy can be for couples, throuples, or any shape of polycule. While many people wait until a problem has really grown out of hand before they consider therapy, relationship therapy can also work to strengthen your communication and connection before problems take root.
Invest in the secure, joyful, and fulfilling relationship that you and your partner(s) deserve. Book your free consultation to find out how Relationship Therapy can help you co-create the relationship(s) of your dreams.
Most of the time we can manage the ups and downs of life without extra support. Then something shifts, and it can feel like it all collapses like a house of cards. Quickly, it can feel like you don't even recognize yourself anymore. None of the skills you were using to successfully manage your life work like they used to. You're overwhelmed and at a loss for how to get unstuck.
At times even the seemingly tiniest of changes can shake us to our foundations, and leave us feeling adrift; but change is often the perfect opportunity to grow. Even devastating loss can hold the possibility to nurture and heal ourselves in profound ways. With the right support in those difficult moments, you can not only get back to where you were, but also grow far beyond what you would've imagined possible.
In therapy, it's important to not only feel safe and understood, but also to use that foundation of trust to challenge yourself. Only you can define what your favorite version is of who you are and what your life will look like, but I can help you turn that dream into a plan.

Parenting through adolescence can be really challenging right now. The norms, expectations, experiences, and access that our children have now are often quite different from what we experienced growing up and continue to shift and change constantly. It can be difficult to know how to prepare them for the world, or even what world we are preparing them for. If on top of that your young person is trying to figure out an identity that you don’t share or even know much about, it’s normal to feel lost and overwhelmed.
You don’t know how to help your child stay safe. You want to support them, but you don’t know what the right thing to say or do is. You’re torn between wanting to talk to them and not wanting to overwhelm them. You probably feel like you have less relevance in their life now than you ever had. Maybe this has even brought up thoughts and feelings, messages you received growing up that you didn’t even realize were there.
The good news is that even in adolescence when children are experimenting with more independence from their parents and caregivers, you are still the most important people in their lives. You still have far more influence in their life than you may think. Adolescent Family Therapy can strengthen your role in your teen’s life, increase your confidence in navigating difficult moments with your child, and improve wellbeing for the whole family.
You don’t have to struggle through this alone. Book your free consultation to find out if Adolescent Family Therapy is right for your family.
Healing from trauma can be a long and complicated process, especially when traumatic experiences were long, complicated, and/or formative. The Trauma Coping Support Group is for people who have had trauma-specific therapy in the past, are currently in trauma-specific therapy (with me or another therapist), or plan to begin in the near future.
This group is not for direct trauma work or sharing trauma experiences. Rather, it is designed to complement that work. In this group, we will learn and practice skills that can help you cope with triggers, talk about the experience of working on trauma, and build a shared experience of giving and receiving support. Sometimes the greatest support comes in the form of experiencing how common the weirdest parts of trauma are. Trauma can make you feel like the only person in the world who is like this, but you are not alone.
If you are interested in joining a Trauma Coping Support Group, contact me for more information and to add your name to the list for the next group. No need to book a consultation for this service. A consultation will be included in your intake session.
You’ve been planning and preparing for the next step in your transition for months. Maybe you’ve been dreaming about it for years. Then you find out your doctor or insurance needs a letter from a therapist before they will approve you. You may be worried about how much it will cost or how many sessions you will need to get your letter.
You can breathe a sigh of relief. You came to the right place. Here’s what you can expect when you book your one session transition letter assessment:
I’ll send you all the paperwork to complete and sign through a secure portal before your appointment. You can fill it out on a computer or phone. All the information I ask for is to help me complete the assessment and letter in one session.
We’ll meet for our appointment using a HIPAA compliant, secure video conferencing system. I will ask you a lot of questions about your gender journey, but it is up to you what and how much you want to share. You may be worried that something you say could disqualify you from accessing transition-related care. I will not deny you a letter for any reason, and I will use the information you share to write a letter that has the best chance of being approved.
At the end of the session, I may recommend additional therapy or other resources that I think will be helpful to you based on what you have shared. You are never obligated to accept any referrals or resources. This process is meant to be informative and help you make the best choices for yourself, not dictate what you have to do.
I will generally be able to provide you with a letter the same day as your appointment or next day. These services are always provided on a pay what you can basis. The full fee for this service is $150. The amount you pay can be anything from $0-150, should be a reasonable amount that you can actually afford, and should absolutely not create a barrier to care for you!
No need to book a consultation for this service. Book your one session transition letter assessment, and get one step closer to your transition goals.
This service is only available to clients who are legally old enough to make transition related medical decisions without parent or guardian consent. Transition letters for minors can be included as part of Adolescent Family Therapy.
