Let’s get you to where you want to be. I believe my clients are the experts in their own lives and I bring to the work: lived experience, training, and a sincere commitment to you living your best life. I follow your lead while also speaking up when something sounds like it might be harmful internalized messaging. I am invested in working with people of a wide range of relationship models and social identities including polyamorous/non-monogamous, trans and nonbinary, Black, Indigenous, and people of color, fat, disabled, neurodivergent, and sex workers. I come to therapy as a second career from the art and education worlds.

I provide workshops/lectures on: working with LGBTQ + clients; seeking family attunement with LGBTQ families; integrating treatment for eating disorder and addiction; bystander intervention; and power-based personal violence.
I specialize in working with clients with eating disorder, trauma, and addiction. I have a particular interest for working with marginalized voices, especially within the LGBTQ + community. One passion is helping those impacted by power-based personal violence and assisting them in reclaiming their voice. I believe in fostering mutually-empowering relationships with clients that assist in supporting them through their personal journeys and encouraging them to access their inner strength and capacity for change. I enjoy working with individuals, families, and groups, with a special interest in the emerging adult population.

*Not currently accepting new clients* Generalizations about therapy are difficult; experiences are as unique as the individuals involved and are unlike any that encountered in family, work, or personal life. Therapy requires involvement of and trust between clinician and client during and between sessions and asks questions or presents issues that may be difficult to discuss. Uncomfortable or unfamiliar emotions may arise, and exploration can lead to reduction in distressing feelings and greater understanding of one's experience, which many people experience as highly rewarding.

Are stress, anxiety, depression, ruminating/obssessive thoughts keeping you from being your true self and living the life you want? Are you dealing with past traumas that continously present themselves in your present-day life? I can help you to break out of dysfunctional unconsious patterns that are keeping you stuck, and work collaboratively with you to start developing steps towards postive, lasting changes. I primarily use a treatment called Accelerated Resolution Therapy which can help facilitate lasting changes in relatively few sessions. (I am a New York and Connecticut-based clinical psychologist)

I enjoy working with womxn who are looking to find their life work and soul's calling. Who desire a stronger connection to the earth and their ancestors and have a desire to slow down. I often work with individuals who carry a great deal of stress in their bodies from past trauma - showing up as autoimmune and hormonal issues. We will work together to find the root of the symptoms arising to allow for healing. My focus is on helping you find meaning in your life while fostering a sense of purpose. We will work together to build your own personal narrative through the use of art, nature, writing and meditation.

Don’t give up. You are not alone. When we are experiencing emotional pain, healing occurs when an empathic and compassionate therapist helps you to explore and understand what your psyche needs. Pain is inevitable at times in our lives, although suffering does not have to be. Emotional discomfort is the signal from your psyche that change is necessary and crises and challenges can be opportunities for our psyche to heal and grow. If you have experienced a loss, are trying to manage conflicts with a partner, friend or colleague, or you are seeking to improve your relationship with yourself, therapy can be helpful.

I have a deep-rooted commitment to helping individuals from diverse backgrounds, backed by professional expertise in a variety of settings. But I also believe that clients are the experts on their own lives. I have worked with clients of all ages, from as young as three to late adulthood, in outpatient therapy settings; methadone clinics; intensive outpatient programs; inpatient psychiatric units, and in-home crisis intervention. One thing remains constant: the focus of therapy should be based on what YOU wish to work on.
