A little about me: I identify as a queer nonbinary femme and have years of experience working with folks who identify as transgender and/or nonbinary find the language for their experience and take the steps to live more fully as themselves. I am an artist, which makes my approach to therapy creative and eclectic, and I’m passionate about helping other artists find art/life balance and fuel their creativity. I also experience chronic pain, and I love nerding out about the science of pain and helping clients find a way to break out of pain/anxiety cycles.

I have particular interest in working with the LGBTQQIA++ community and specifically have 25 years of experience working with transgender , NB and other clients who are exploring issues related to gender identity.

I specialize in working with BIPOC and Latinx clients, transgender and gender non-conforming individuals, folks from queer, bisexual, asexual, lesbian, and gay communities, folks who practice BDSM, non-monogamy/polyamory/relationship anarchy, and activists.
I enjoy working with supervisees as a thought partner, coach, supervisor, and mentor. I believe growth happens when we are rooted in our integrity, engaging curiosity, leaning into discomfort, and embracing humor. I have extensive experience supervising clinical and macro social workers, advocates, counselors and clinicians in community health, non-profit, and private practice settings.

My particular areas of interest include surviving the trauma of interpersonal, sexual, and/or political violence; negotiating a lesbian/ gay/ bisexual/ transgender / queer identity; and the impact of stigma on mental and physical well-being.
I believe there are many ways to bring about change, and work collaboratively with clients to identify the ways that will work best for them. My approach to therapy is integrative, incorporating relational, psychodynamic and strengths-based perspectives, as well as cognitive-behavioral and mindfulness-based interventions. I am committed to understanding clients within their cultural contexts, and pay close attention to the impact of ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation and, when relevant, religion on development and identity.

Areas of Specialization: * Depression * Anxiety * Transgender /Gender Identity Issues * Academic/Family/Job Stress * Career Development * Life Transitions(chosen and unexpected) * Queer/Gay, Lesbian, and Bisexual Identity * PTSD/Trauma Recovery * Addictions * Communication and Assertiveness Training * Spiritual Concerns * Relationship Problems.
I bring a warm and interactive style to my psychotherapeutic practice, which can best be described as "eclectic," as I believe that not one type of therapy is right for everyone. Pulling from psychodynamic (insight-oriented) psychotherapy, cognitive-behavioral techniques, mindfulness/meditation, and somatics (the integration of body/mind/spirit), I will tailor my practice to your individual needs depending on the particular issues you would like to address in therapy.

I am a licensed independent clinical social worker in the state of Massachusetts practicing in Boston (on occupied Massachusett land). I am a queer, transgender , fat-positive, liberation-oriented therapist. I strive to practice from an anti-oppressive, non-pathologizing perspective with the understanding that the mental health field is steeped in colonialism and white supremacy. My specialty and interest lies in supporting people in healing from various traumas across the life course (single events and complex trauma). I firmly value the therapeutic relationship and believe a strong one is key to being able to do meaningful work.

I specialize in working with couples, families, individual adults, and transgender youth on issues such as anxiety and depression, ADHD, and mood disorders and have worked extensively with artists, professional athletes, and entrepreneurs.
Many people come to therapy feeling stuck or trapped in patterns of behavior or relating, and often hopeless about freeing themselves from these patterns. I believe that therapy is a collaborative process and that we, therapist and client, can work together to become aware of these recurring themes, restore hope, and formulate a pathway to alter whatever is holding you back from having the life you want. This work involves sifting through the past to create the relationships, career, and life clients seek.

I have treated a wide variety of issues including but not limited to depression, anxiety, addiction, professional development, relationship and intimacy issues, infertility, gay, lesbian and transgender issues, and parenting.
I believe that therapy is a conduit for mental, emotional and spiritual change. Working with individuals, couples and families I often see my clients grow and change in the most positive and rewarding ways. In my practice I work closely with people to identify the changes you want to make in your life. Then we focus on the strengths that have helped you thus far and the challenges that have held you back. Understanding yourself, a strong self-esteem, and emotional, mental, physical and spiritual healing are the key to moving forward in life and being happy.

***I am not currently accepting new clients*** Struggling with life transitions, creative ruts, and relationships are difficult in any situation but especially so if you do not follow the heteronormative path. It can be difficult to open up to someone when you are not certain that they understand Queer and Alternative relationship structures. I use an individualized approach with each client to build a therapeutic relationship based on specific goals. I focus my work around issues regarding LGBTQ+, sexuality, non-binary and transgender , complex relationships, power dynamics, sexual health, BDSM/Kink, and other dynamics.

In addition, I have a wealth of experience working with members of the LGBTQ community with a focus of addressing gender dysphoria /gender identity.
What if you could start feeling better? I would love to support and explore how we can make change happen for you. Maybe you are tired of managing those racing thoughts on your own or struggling to figure out the best next step for your career or relationship - either way I can help. I work with clients whose anxiety/depression has made it difficult to get the most out of their day. Together, we can work to figure out how to feel less overwhelmed and more empowered to do what you want to do without the worry getting in the way.

It is my belief that healing happens in relationships, and therapy is no different. We will orient our work toward what matters to you most, and through somatic tools, relationship building, and exploration of different parts of self, you can practice having choice over your patterns of being, relating, and feeling. I acknowledge the role of systems of oppression on mental health and wellness, and have particular training supporting an increased sense of safety, dignity, and belonging for those who have experienced trauma.

*PRACTICE FULL* I am a clinical social worker with advanced training in human sexuality. I assist clients in gaining insights about gender, sexuality and/or relationships. For example, I can help in healing from sexual harm, improve sexual functioning, address out-of-control sexual behavior, and help explore challenges related to sexuality and ability. I can help you live authentically within intimate relationships (inclusive of non-monogamy), and explore the development of sexual attraction and gender identity over the life course. I help many people heal from sexual harm and live more authentic lives from a holistic perspective.

Times of transition can often cause us to feel overwhelmed and alone. While people close to us may be supportive, we may not always feel able to share with them our doubts and discomfort. Having an empathic therapist who can objectively help us navigate the journey is invaluable. My work with clients who have struggled with depression and anxiety, survived trauma or grief, or experience the world as LGBTQ+ identified people is strengths-based, person-centered, and results-oriented.
