Announcement icon I am offering teletherapy on various platforms including Zoom, FaceTime, or on the phone.
I utilize an eclectic, psychodynamic approach to working with people that is tailored to your individual needs. I have specific experience with issues related to substance misuse, LGBTQ identities, HIV/AIDS, anxiety, depression, sexual compulsions, romantic relationships, spirituality & religion, and trauma. I welcome the opportunity to talk with you and be a part of your process of growth and development. Feel free to contact me for more information or an initial consultation.
In addition to my private practice, I am currently the Director of Clinical Services at Footsteps, an organization that helps people from fundamentalist religious communities lead more independent lives. Prior to that I worked as the Assistant Director of Behavioral Health at GMHC providing services to LGBTQ and HIV+ populations.
We are living through an incredibly challenging time and I am committed to providing services and support to all those in need. I understand that therapy can be very expensive for many people and have therefore designated some of my hours to work with folks who may need to pay a lower fee.
