"I think we can all agree, life is hard! Sometimes the most honest, brave, and difficult thing we can do is reach out for support. Kudos to you for starting this courageous (and maybe scary) process! Needing support does not mean you are weak or broken, it means you are human. My goal as a therapist is to help you feel safe and comfortable bringing your whole, authentic self into our work together. I find using humor, whenever appropriate, helps to disarm fears and facades while building a trusting relationship between client and clinician.

Looking for an empathetic, supportive, solution-focused therapist? The clients I serve appreciate the connection we share and the candid, compassionate style that structures each therapy session. You don't have to continue feeling stuck in a relationship. Anxious or depressive symptoms don't have to continue to make each day a struggle. Loving yourself is possible. Change is difficult, but if you are ready for it, and you have the right tools, you can be successful. "You can change what's going on around you when you start changing what's going on within you."

Many of us are navigating systems that were not designed to nourish us, and growing through hardships that leave us feeling isolated and overwhelmed. I work to help people (especially LGBTQ people, BIPOC, and Neurodivergent people) understand how therapy (e.g. acceptance, emotion regulation, interpersonal skills, stress-reduction, trauma work, value-driven action) can be applied to overcome and liberate. I also specialize in managing Bipolar Disorder, OCD/OCD-spectrum disorders, PTSD, & Social Anxiety. By enhancing your strengths, reworking coping mechanisms, and reframing beliefs about yourself, you can find peace and joy.

Changes can be tough. Still, your decision to seek counseling demonstrates a built-in orientation toward growth, change, and development. People often seek counseling when change seems difficult and situations feel so overwhelming: like an obstacle course of both internal and external barriers. Within a supportive therapeutic relationship, we can address those barriers and the changes that you want to see in your life. I enjoy working with creative clients, people in job, work, and life transitions, relationship issues, and diverse sexual and gender identities. My therapeutic style blends compassionate feedback, care, and humor.

This isn't the way you envisioned your life being. You are a woman used to juggling it all. Recently you find yourself laying awake at night, unable to sleep due to anxious thoughts. You find yourself scrolling through social media, wondering how everyone seems able to manage their lives so perfectly except you. You find yourself tearful, irritable and feeling on edge more often than before. It feels as though there are not enough hours in the day and that the reality of your daily life is vastly different than you had envisioned.

I am comfortable working to help you access the parts of yourself that feel both scary and powerful.

I’m a social worker/therapist in Philadelphia who supports adults struggling with anxiety, depression, unresolved trauma, relationship issues, and challenges with confidence/body image. My practice is called Talking the Walk to reflect the core therapeutic values of slowing down, prioritizing experience, integrating mind and body, and embracing paradox. I’m passionate about using these values to help you heal from trauma, reconnect to the wisdom of your body, and cultivate more authentic and fulfilling relationships—with others and, even more importantly—with yourself.

Difficult break-ups, devastating medical diagnoses, and rocky transitions to the next phase of life are all things we are used to observing in the lives of others. However, when the unexpected happens to us, we can feel powerless, anxious, and afraid of what the future may hold. These losses can shake our sense of security and our outlook on life. Though difficult times are part of being human, we do not have to face these situations alone.

Relationships are my speciality, especially issues of broken trust, communication, intimacy and addiction. While there is no perfect partner or relationship, our intimate relationships should be a source of joy, safety and support. Whether you are dating, married, engaged or divorced, "straight" or LGBTQIA, monogamous or polyamorous, kinky or vanilla, in college or in retirement, friends "with benefits" or platonic friends, I commit to listening carefully and without judgment to help you find solutions resulting in more peace and harmony in your relationships.

I believe that we all possess an internal wisdom about what we need to overcome challenges. Life experiences--whether originating from within us, or as we make our way in the world--often cloud our ability to access this wisdom. Therapy with me begins with establishing a safe and trusting relationship, which becomes the context in which we can explore and modify those parts of your experience that interfere with optimal functioning, and which block your ability to feel deeply satisfied with your life.

What type of Philadelphia mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Philadelphia?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
