Announcement icon As a response to the COVID-19 pandemic, I am now offering teletherapy services to residents of California and New York.

About

I specialize in the treatment of trauma and PTSD/c-PTSD with adults and LGBTQ individuals. I have years of experience working with people who have experienced traumas like emotional abuse, burnout, intergenerational trauma, attachment trauma, womb/birth trauma, sexual assault and the impact of the criminal legal system. I also support people who are sober, sober curious or seeking harm reduction strategies for substance use.
I draw from Relational Psychotherapy, Psychodynamic Psychotherapy and Somatic Psychotherapy. I am also trained in Parts Work and EMDR, which can help to heal past traumas, transcend limiting beliefs, develop more day to day ease and gain a greater sense of agency. As a therapist, I meet client’s with authenticity, warmth, curiosity and full attunement.
Together we will uncover and heal what has been shamed, denied and rejected, bringing you closer to self-compassion and self-acceptance. It is my hope that our work together leads you to living a more fully expressed life. If you live in California and New York and have an interest in psychotherapy sessions, please feel free to contact me. Email is best!
