About

I am a NYC based psychotherapist who specializes in helping teens and adults who struggle with anxiety, depression, ADHD, complex trauma, attachment, sleep, identity, artistic/career blocks, and life transitions. I have extensive experience working with survivors of intimate partner violence and sexual assault, within LGBTQ+ and kink communities, and with neurodiverse clients. I adapt evidence-based therapy techniques for individual needs, including DBT mindfulness and distress tolerance skills, ACT, psychoanalysis, and arts therapies. I strive to create a compassionate environment rooted in trust, warmth, and partnership.
It is important to me that you feel understood. I believe there are reasons for every decision we make—you revisit maladaptive coping mechanisms (ie: returning to exes, avoiding tasks) because they work at providing temporary relief. Even in your darkest moments you love yourself enough to want to stop yourself from experiencing intolerable pain.
Diagnoses isn’t a necessary component of every treatment, but many of the clients I work with find that it can be an opportunity for relief, healing, community, and validation. I am your advocate wherever possible - I have written supportive documents for clients applying for gender affirming surgeries, asylum in the US, and work/school accommodations.
