As a queer-identified clinician, I am informed by my personal and professional experiences working within the LGBTQIA+ community, as well as by my training in Relational and Narrative Therapies, Mindfulness-Based CBT, DBT, and Trauma-Informed care.
My practice is rooted in what I believe to be the principles of a just and compassionate world: It is warm, welcoming, affirming, and emotionally attuned. I am committed to honoring your reality while actively exploring the possibility of healing and practical change. In fulfilling this practice, I will work with you—in partnership—to develop a sense of curiosity about your thoughts and feelings; practice new ways of coping; and explore the systems, behaviors, and beliefs that keep you from living a full and authentic life.

In a city like New York, it is easy to feel lost. Anything from career hurdles to relationship stress can make one feel that they have lost their personal compass. It is our goal in therapy to collaboratively work on discovering ways of managing these symptoms effectively, exploring root causes and ultimately minimizing feelings of loss through finding yourself again.
