Psychotherapy can help you make sense of complicated feelings, gain insight into relational patterns, and begin to move forward in areas of your life where you feel stuck. My focus is to help you untangle struggles, set meaningful goals, revise problematic narratives about yourself, and re-orient you toward your values. I am interested in getting to know all of you – your past struggles, present concerns, and hopes for the future. My integrative approach is informed by psychodynamic, feminist, multicultural, relational, and behaviorist theories. Above all, I value the therapeutic relationship and your personal growth.

I hold a PhD in Clinical Psychology from Duquesne University and completed a postdoctoral fellowship in LGBTQ Healthcare. I am also trained to provide psychological evaluations for trans and gender non-conforming folks seeking Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) or Gender Reassignment Surgery (GRS) to address Gender Dysphoria.

I have worked in a variety of settings, including university counseling centers, medical hospitals, and outpatient psychotherapy clinics. I am trained to provide individual psychotherapy, couples and family therapy, and psychological assessments. I have evening hours available and my office is located two blocks from the Eastern Market Metro.
