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.

As an LGBTQIA + therapist, I use a client-centered, humanistic and trauma-sensitive approach to address anxiety and mood disorders, ADHD, and issues pertaining to identity and sexuality.
Are you struggling with self-love and self-acceptance? Do you find yourself fighting with anxiety, addictions, and negative or scattered thoughts? Perhaps you are dealing with issues pertaining to your identity or even going through an existential crisis. I know how hard these times can be because I've been there myself. Therapy has helped me find healing in my own life and I know it can do the same to you.

When collaborating with individuals and couples, my queer identity and research interest in relational conflict has deepened my knowledge of diverse gender-sexual experiences and those facing relationship challenges.

I can help you discover ways of resolving your symptoms through healing from past trauma, enriching relationships, and strengthening your sense of identity and values that ultimately lead you to a more fulfilling life. We can work on understanding your relationships and how they impact you. Practice mindfulness techniques to reduce stress and reframe internalized messages that have been holding you back.

I have advanced training in psychotherapy/psychoanalysis, and in substance abuse/addictions, with particular experience with the LGBTQIA + communities, young adults, teens, and with parents around the challenges of raising healthy, self-actualizing children.

In my 30+ years as a therapist, I have come to know that it is the genuine connection between us that paves the way to successful, fulfilling therapy. I will help you to learn more about yourself, to understand why you do what you do and to uncover, strengthen and integrate the many aspects that make you authentically you.

Tired of having to educate your therapist on issues of sexuality and gender? I've been there. I specialize in working with LGBTQIA + populations, including those of transgender and non-binary experience, expansive sexualities such as polyamory/non-monogamy, kink/BDSM, & sex work. I also specialize in working with complex trauma survivors and the many effects that can come from these early life experiences. I approach psychotherapy from a holistic & trauma-informed lens, using emotion-focused, body-based, mindfulness-informed approaches as well as pulling in practical tools as needed (and consented to!) from approaches like DBT & CBT.

Specialties include spirituality, emerging adulthood, and queer identity development.
In times of crisis and questioning, it can be hard to remember our potential for joy, meaning, freedom, and connection. I believe transformation happens in the space between client and counselor, where we confront challenges within a safe therapeutic environment as a team. I am experienced in helping clients explore their diverse identities and discover who and how they want to be.

I work with young adults and adults experiencing depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, issues related to drugs or alcohol, and those recovering and healing from trauma. I have supported individuals in exploring their gender and sexuality and embrace non-binary, trans , and queer identities. I also specialize in perinatal, postpartum, and parental mental health. Many of my clients are mental health care providers themselves, who need clinical supervision or emotional support. My approach supports exploration of both the roots of emotions, behaviors, and patterns, while also talking about the here and now.

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 hold specializations in group, family and couples therapy as well as a cerification in the unique patterns established in gay .
Change is inevitable but the passageway to it is difficult to navigate alone. Psychotherapy is a collaborative effort between client and therapist to aid in that journey. This is achieved through a careful look at the ingredients in life that have resulted in a unique recipe for self-structure and patterning in each person. To change the recipe is to recalculate it's components, gradually sifting out past patterns that have led to disappointment or loss and replace them with others that lead to personal fulfillment. These patterns manifest themselves in work, personal and parenting concerns.

As one of the very first psychologists in New York City to have practiced as an openly gay man, I believe that I am very sensitive to the questions so many of us face concerning self-esteem and viability.
I am known to have a warm, yet direct style when practicing, and often utilize humor to help create a relaxed atmosphere. I believe that through exploration of one's personality and relationships with others, people are able to overcome obstructions to their development.

I have extensive experience working with clients who struggle with depression, anxiety, substance abuse, relationship difficulties, career development, PTSD and LGBTQ issues.
You are about to take your first step forward toward growth, change and improving the quality of your life. Your decision to start therapy is a commitment to yourself. By exploring both the past and the present, you will recognize life patterns and dynamics which affect your relationships, career, and overall emotional and physical well-being. I believe each person is unique and do not utilize a "one-size-fits-all" approach. Rather, we will work collaboratively to create a safe, supportive environment that encourages honesty, authenticity, connection and directness. Together we establish the direction and pace of our work.
