My therapeutic practice is informed by critical race theory as well as queer and feminist theory and grounded in an understanding that as a white therapist, cultural humility and anti-racist practice are essential to my work with all clients.
Hi, I'm glad you're here! In my therapeutic practice, I work to support all clients in their exploration and healing around issues of gender identity, sex and sexuality, loss and grief, depression, anxiety, cultivating healthy relationships, and self-acceptance. I specialize in therapeutic work with queer and trans clients. I believe that the most important aspect of therapeutic work is the creation of an affirming and safe relationship between therapist and client. In this way, my approach as a therapist is one that first and foremost is warm, kind, and authentic.

As a queer identifying practitioner implementing an intersectional feminist framework, providing inclusionary environments where one feels welcomed, celebrated and supported is a focal point in my practice. I place emphasis on cultivating meaningful connections with clients that are founded in mindfulness and trust. Using modalities such as somatic psychotherapy, CBT, and motivational interviewing, I prioritize a holistic approach to healing that embodies the mind, body and spirit.

Therapy is not a “one size fits all” scenario and you deserve a person- centered approach to your care that is tailored to your individual needs. My role as your therapist is to make sure your needs are being met and that you are working towards becoming the best version of yourself. I chose to be a therapist because I saw firsthand that there was a lack of representation among the LGBTQIA + community and there was nobody who really understood the issues we are faced with as a community. You deserve to have a therapist that can relate to you and your experiences.

Feeling stuck? Want to bring some playfulness into your life and feel like something can change? Drama Therapy, an experiential approach to facilitating change, is an incredible tool for self-discovery, transformation, and connection. As a queer gender nonconforming therapist, I especially enjoy working with queer and trans folks, and focus on queering my practice away from white supremacist and ableist systems of pathology. My goal is to create a space that feels safe enough for you to expand self-acceptance, grow in ways that are important to you, and maybe even have a laugh in the process.

I offer a nonjudgmental, empathic, and genuine approach with all of my clients. I bring empathy into every interaction I have with every person & I operate from a radical, social justice, abolitionist, anti-oppressive perspective. I incorporate the Liberation Health Framework into my work, paying close attention to how oppression/systems affect everyone's experiences moving through the world. My identity as a queer mixed race woman of color strongly influences my practice and work with clients. I have experience working with QTPOC communities, disenfranchised & marginalized identities, and folks navigating mental health challenges.

I am a queer , non-binary clinical psychologist specializing in care for the LGBTQ community, and in particular, gender expansive folks.
Psychotherapy is an intimate collaboration in self-discovery, problem-solving & relief of suffering. My aim is to meet you where you’re at, beginning from where you are — depressed, anxious, isolated or lost. Together, we’ll winnow these obstacles to uncover fears/outgrown narratives separating you from your goals. I’ll offer feedback and invite yours fully; looking at our relationship deepens a mutual understanding and sheds light on your other relationships. When the fit is right, a safe and meaningful therapeutic connection supports symptom relief, fosters growth, self-esteem, and helps us (re)claim our identities.

For the past decade, I have provided psychotherapy and healthcare navigation to the queer and trans community utilizing an anti-oppressive, intersectional lens that acknowledges relational and institutional trauma bearing significant impact, especially upon those identifying as LGBTQIA +, BIPOC and people living with HIV.
Are you feeling overwhelmed, misunderstood or lost? Searching for a nonjudgemental and open-minded therapist can be a difficult process. I believe this search is an act of vulnerability and a vital step towards expanding self-knowledge and improving your wellbeing. I have experienced how therapy can serve as a catalyst to better understanding yourself in addition to improving your relationships with others. My approach focuses on helping you identify your strengths, inner resilience, and internal and external barriers that are getting in the way of having your needs met.

I work with adults whose goal is to heal from the psychological and emotional effects of personal & intergenerational traumas, minority related trauma or stress, as well as LGBTQIA and Non-Monogamous identity or relationship stressors. Their ideal goals would be to better manage emotional triggers due to past traumas, LGBTQIA related issues and Non-Monogamous relationship stressors. The objective would be to develop the insight, self-confidence, and concrete skills to shift from feelings of shame, guilt, anger or resentment to feelings of empowerment, affirmation, self-love and confidence to build healthier relationships.

I believe strongly in feminism, sexual empowerment, sex positivity and LGBTQ equality.
I am a AASECT Certified Sex Therapist (CST). I will work with you wherever you are at in your life and customize my clinical techniques to meet your needs. I specialize in sex and sexuality, but offer therapy in many other areas. In addition, because a sex therapist such as myself is knowledgeable about alternative lifestyles, identities and gender expressions, some find that sessions with a sex therapist can be helpful in resolving issues unrelated to their sexuality. I earned my Master's degree in Clinical Social Work from Hunter College in Manhattan. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and cocreator of Wise Sex Therapy Assoc.

I have worked with individuals experiencing depression, unhealthy relationship dynamics, life transitions, substance abuse, and trauma, as well as with the LGBTQ + community.
While you are uniquely special, your struggles are more common than you think. We all have challenges, and often in very universal ways. It’s all part of the human experience. Psychotherapy is a great way to help guide you through life’s trials and tribulations. It can be profoundly healing to have a safe space in which to be affirmed and productively challenged. Together we can explore issues related to ambivalence, shame, resilience, boundaries, connection, confidence, and self-development in order to help you fully show up in your life.

Hello and welcome! I'm a licensed psychologist in NY with a particular interest in helping individuals navigate identity development, especially re: race or sexuality, something I'm familiar with professionally (I have years of experience working with queer - and PoC-identifying individuals) and personally (I am multiracial and LGBTQIA +). Figuring out who you are can be challenging, especially when you feel pressure to fit a complex and fluid identity into a box or conform to norms that you do not identify with. In my sessions, I cultivate a space of validation and acceptance where you can feel safe learning about and being yourself.

I have received certifications in Trauma-Focused CBT, Assertive Community Treatment, Motivational Interviewing, and Complicated Grief Therapy, as well as in CPI's OCD, Eating Disorders, and LGBTQ + curricula.
I have had a lifelong passion for sexual health and believe it can be an integral part of our well-being. I hope to help people surmount any obstacles to engaging in the sex they want to have, whether that be due to anxiety or depression, body image or self-esteem issues, challenges with relationships or desire, questions of identity, or sexual difficulties after trauma or STI diagnosis. My goal is to help clients overcome the taboo of talking about sex and sexuality, to free themselves from the sexual shame and stigma that is inherent in our society, and to aid people in finding pleasure in themselves, their bodies, and each other.

I have specialized experience working in identity integration with neurodiverse, trans and gender diverse,.
Great therapy can be self-affirming, life-saving, and transformative. I believe that there is innate wisdom within all of us, which is clarified when we are able to assess our values and listen to the stories that we attach to our lives. I strive to create a safe space to slow down and listen to your story with the support of a warm, stable connection. My highest motivation is to help you reconnect with your internal sense of self-knowledge and live in a more authentic way. Therapy often involves deep and painful contemplation. It also is a place of joy and relief in being seen for your whole self rather than fragments of it.
