I'm a trans nonbinary therapist who specializes in helping clients navigate OCD, anxiety, and sexual trauma (and often the intersection of all three). I help clients understand that anxiety is not actually an emotion, but a way of avoiding bigger, more unpleasant feelings bubbling beneath the surface. Much of my work consists of helping folks process their grief at the existential nightmare that is the world we live in. Using mind-body therapies like IFS and ERP, I teach clients how to get in touch with these Big Feelings without being swallowed by them.

People often come to me during life transitions when they feel anxious, scared and sad. Together we explore and develop more self awareness that leads to greater self acceptance and purposeful decision making. I work with Individuals and Couples to heal from traumas, process grief, work through shame and self judgment, improve relationships, manage career challenges. Additionally I have a special interest in working with parents during postpartum and beyond.

I am back in the office part-time! I am seasoned and approachable, with extensive training and experience. I've helped many live fuller, more rewarding lives. My training is psychodynamic in theory, but I am thoughtful and creative in tailoring my approach to each individual. While I believe that we are a product of all our previous experiences, I work largely in the here-and-now to create richer, more meaningful insights. I have worked wonders with many people who have found earlier therapies unhelpful. My little dog, Simba, is usually with us in the office; he's good at figuring out who wants to interact with him :)

I like to do a two session consultation. In the first session you will have the space to tell me what has prompted you to seek treatment at this time. And in the second, through careful and non-intrusive inquiry, we will delineate the personality patterns that might be underpinning your current concerns. From there you can decide to work with me, I can help you find another therapist that better meets your needs, or we can simply part ways. The choice is yours, and the increased understanding is yours to keep!

Often time, people begin psychotherapy as a result of feeling disconnected from themselves or the world. When overwhelmed by life, you may notice feeling drained, disconnected, dissatisfied with your relationships, and at times physically unwell. In therapy, I create a safe space to explore past, present, and future struggles and work towards goals in order to live a more insightful, balanced, fulfilled life.

I believe people come to therapy because something isn't working for them. They need someone to listen to their story, hear the deeper meanings and make meaningful connections for them. They may be depressed over a relationship, experiencing a loss of self esteem, mourning a loved, seeking a deeper meaning in life, or becoming aware of a past trauma. Sharing ones concerns with an experienced therapist can help connect past history to the present allowing one to gain meaningful insights into ones life. Therapy is a place to share, unburden and grow toward the fulfillment one longs for.

Changes in thinking, mood, and behavior affect how one relates to self, another and how choices are made. When experiencing on-going personal conflict, relationship issues, family troubles, depression, stress, anxiety, and or substance dependency to cope, many people turn to a therapist for help.

Life will always happen and my goal is to provide you a safe space to help you challenge thoughts, emotions, and patterns that are no longer helpful. Change is uncomfortable and every person deserves an individualized and clinical approach to help navigate the unpleasant changes and circumstances that are occurring. Although, there is not always complete control over what is happening, there is always control over how we think about situations. which can lead to a better quality of life and less suffering.

Have you ever thought there was a more authentic version of yourself? Maybe you’ve glimpsed this version in the eyes of someone who loves you—like a grandparent, teacher, or friend. They see only the best in you and you feel strong, confident, and content around them. Spoiler alert: this can be you all the time! Due to trauma, stress, or unhelpful conditioning, many of us develop maladaptive coping strategies and negative thought patterns, which keeps us from living authentically.

There is an intriguing complexity at the heart of therapy. Patient and therapist meet together to consider difficulties in the patient's life. From this shared experience an interesting and challenging thing happens. Versions of the difficulties being addressed in therapy begin to emerge in the therapy relationship. The question is not whether this happens, but rather whether it is noticed and discussed. So, therapy, when it works well, comes to be not just about the patient's life, it becomes a vital piece of that life. Emotionally meaningful experience is generated and dealt with in the therapy itself.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors.

Many have been licensed by the country or state where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In the US, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counselor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counselors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, a therapy session in the United States could cost between $100 and $200 or more. If you have insurance, the expense of mental health care is typically lower, but it varies based on your insurance plan details and whether you choose an in-network or out-of-network mental healthcare provider.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your zip code.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship. Therapists in the United States are bound by the regulations set out by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), which aims to protect sensitive health information. With very few exceptions, a therapist will only discuss their client with others when the client has given their written permission. The instances in which a therapist would be required to disclose personal information are: if a client poses a danger to themselves or others, if the therapist suspects the abuse of a child or an elderly or otherwise dependent adult, or if they are legally forced to by court order. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed with a client before their first session.
