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.

Short term therapy in order for transgender and non-binary people to access medical services is also offered.
I provide trauma-informed, socially just therapy to people of all genders. The lingering effects of living in a racist, misogynist and transphobic culture can manifest for many people as depression, anxiety, and panic. I see the connection between the external world and our internal experiences as central to the therapy process. Individuals as well as people in relationships of all configurations are welcome: couples, triads, and any and all open configurations. I trained at Northampton Sex Therapy Associates for 2 years and enjoy working with sexual issues and problems in therapy.

My specialty is working with members of the LGBTQ+ community, in particular transgender and nonbinary individuals.
We all just want to be happy, but what that means is different for every person. If you're LGBTQ+ and don't have the support you need from people in your home, work, or school environment, it may be more challenging to live your happiest self. Especially since the pandemic, we may feel even more isolated and in need of support. Coming from a social justice framework, I use a blend of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Therapy, and mindfulness based therapy, to help my clients build coping skills, greater trust in their innate healing abilities, and finding their inner truth.

I will also provide letters for transgender , non-binary, and gender expansive clients seeking access to medical services, through an informed consent model of practice.
Are you finding yourself feeling more overwhelmed, numb, having difficulty focusing, or enjoying your favorite activities less than you used to? Do you identify as part of the LGBTQIA+ community, & need a safe place to explore your gender, transitioning/ coming out, or relationships with others? Have you experienced minority stress, and noticed that frequent microaggressions have effected your energy levels? Are you a survivor of an abusive or traumatic experience, & need a safe place to process and build the ability to cope? Or are you a parent seeking support for their child, to build healthy coping tools and communication skills?

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.
