My individual and couples work is informed by psychodynamic, relational, and trauma-focused modalities, with a focus on topics surrounding anxiety & depression, relationships, sex, sexuality, gender identity, and substance use.
My ten years of experience working with LGBTQ people and clients of various backgrounds in mental health settings has shown me that personal change occurs best through relationships based on trust, and a common purpose. Relationships where you are encouraged to say what’s on your mind, be challenged, take risks, and gain new insights. In our sessions, I will focus on honoring your autonomy as we work towards your goals for therapy. My intention is not to teach you a “correct way to live" but instead to learn what already works for you and help create a space to explore yourself further leading to new possibilities for your life.

I offer relational (for friends, couples , polycules, and other significant relationships in people’s lives) and group therapy, as well as individual and group supervision for other therapists.
I work with people to help them explore, understand, and heal from the ways life has left its imprints upon them— be that from trauma, oppression, or simply the complexity of our messy and beautiful interconnectedness with each other. My approach is creative, humorous and relational. It is rooted in values of anti-oppression, abolitionism, and harm reduction.

My strengths as a clinician are working with young adults, young couples , and women who have survived traumatic events, including ongoing interpersonal trauma, and who want support to process these experiences in order to show up more fully for their lives in the present. I also really enjoy supporting individuals and couples as they are making transitions in their lives and in their relationships, growing their family, navigating pregnancy and postpartum stages, striving to better integrate their careers and family, and deepening intimacy and connection with each other.

In couples counseling I can offer experience identifying and healing stubborn patterns of miscommunication and conflict that wear down openness and intimacy.
Therapy works when you feel genuinely seen and heard, and when we can build the trust to clearly imagine and move towards the ways you want yourself and your life to change. My approach to this work is warm, caring, and candid—and, above all, responsive to what you need. We might also laugh sometimes.

I am a licensed clinical psychologist in Philadelphia who has been offering counseling to individuals and couples for over 30 years.
Are you feeling anxious, depressed or overwhelmed? Struggling with your relationships? We humans are wired for connection. When life's experiences damage those connections, we end up depressed, anxious, angry & unhappy, often turning to unhealthy lifestyles including alcohol, food, drugs & overspending. We suffer & our relationships suffer. Therapy allows time for exploring these disconnections & learning new skills for connecting to ourselves, others & the world, so we can live the life we want. I can help you clarify & work productively with these issues, develop your strengths, & experience a greater overall sense of well-being.

I have experience working with trauma, depression, anxiety, substance use, life transition challenges, self-esteem, relationship issues including intimate partner violence, and immigration matter.
The desire to know and to be known is a normal human experience. I value the trauma-informed safety and client-centered connection we collaboratively create through a systematic lens. I am particularly sensitive to diversity in culture and self-identity, including with respect to race, gender and sexuality. I believe the importance of affirming the unique individual experience with cultural humility. Through compassion, sensitivity, and empowerment, we will work together respectfully to acknowledge vulnerability, unearth patterns, attend complexity, and gain ownership change to achieve the most authentic and expansive self.

I work with individuals and couples (including non-monogamous/polyamorous relationship structures) both virtually and in-person.
Throughout the course of our lives, all of us experience challenging relationship dynamics, family expectations, losses, traumas, societal pressures, oppressive structures, and/or shifts in our identity. Due to these, over time we may find ourselves disconnected from our sense of self and no longer clear on what we need, want, or feel. We may struggle to be present or to be in tune with our bodies. We may feel like we're living for others, rather than for ourselves. Therapy is one way that we can process, heal, and understand these experiences in order to re-embody who we are and who we want to be.
