My passion is creating a positive working relationship with my clients in which they can feel supported and challenged so that they achieve the positive changes that they desire. The unique experience of lesbian identity in a heterosexist culture impacts our sense of self worth, personal power and emotional and physical well being. Attention to development of awareness around
internalized shame as a source of pain and internal conflict is a vital part of therapy for lesbian women and their partners.
