About

Therapy is an inherently collaborative process. As such, I believe that effective therapy begins by building a foundation of trust, understanding, and compassion. I see my clients as the experts on their experience, their values, and their goals. My role is to work with individuals to identify and develop creative strategies, tools, insights, etc., to support their growth and healing. As an integrative therapist, my work is primarily based in CBT/DBT, Gestalt, Mindfulness-based therapies, and is neuropsychologically informed. My perspective is grounded in feminist and intersectional frameworks, with an emphasis on cultural humility.
Although I see clients with a broad range of concerns, my areas of focus include anxiety, OCD, trauma, disordered eating, ADHD, and serving individuals with LGBTQIA identities. I provide individual therapy, groups, workshops, psychological evaluation, ADHD screening, evaluation and documentation for individuals seeking gender-affirming medical transition.
I am currently accepting new clients and am scheduling remote/telehealth and in-office appointments (given that the necessary precautions related to COVID-19 are met). I offer a free phone consult prior to a first session in order to help get a sense of each other and determine if I might be a good fit for what an individual is looking for.
