Are you feeling stuck or unhappy at home, work or school? Using food to manage stress? Struggling with a relationship? Using experiential techniques beyond basic "talk therapy," I create a safe space helping clients remove the blocks that are keeping them from living a joy-filled life. Many of the approaches I use with clients supported me in my own process of healing from depression and an eating disorder. I now happily share these techniques with my clients. Specializations: Relationship issues, Food issues, Depression, Parenting, Anxiety. Couples therapy (all couples including LGBTQ and polyamorous couples welcome).

I work with adults and offer individual and couples counseling .
We all have points in our lives when outside support helps us move through difficult times, grief, stuckness, and transitions. I will commit to your healing and help you understand your family history and relationships better. Together we connect with your core self and strengths to support the life you really want to live. I am a white, cis-gender queer therapist. I believe our identities and social locations matter in the therapy relationship (race, class, ability, culture, etc.) and in your healing. I believe we all need to heal from white supremacy and support this in our work.

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 help individuals, couples and families improve the quality of their relationships by identifying and eliminate destructive patterns of interaction that are toxic and often grow out of anxiety, depression and old/unresolved trauma.
Making the decision to seek the support of a therapist is a very personal process and often occurs when one wants to change an aspect of life. I work collaboratively with clients to build a trusting and compassionate therapeutic alliance, interweaving my training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Image Transformation Therapy (ImTT) with my background in Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) to make the counseling experience educational and empowering.

You’ve been feeling a major lack of desire and it’s stressing you out. You’re overwhelmed and frustrated because you want to want sex but feel like no matter what you try, it’s not working. And now you even find yourself dreading or avoiding sex. You’re stuck in a lose-lose situation because you’re stressed when you try to have sex, and you’re stressed if you avoid it. I help individuals and couples who are overwhelmed and stressed with low libido understand their sex drives, decrease barriers to desire, and find more helpful ways to seek out better sex. I’ll help you see why focusing only on the sex hasn’t helped… but what can!

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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Philadelphia?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider 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.
