Using gestalt therapy and the "Self as Therapist", I work with clients around depression, anxiety, gender identity, abuse/trauma, grief, and relationship issues.
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'm an AASECT Certified Sex Therapist and a Certified Gestalt Therapist.
I believe that everyone is capable of healing and creating a life they love. I provide a safe space for people to talk about difficult experiences without fear of judgment. I specialize in relationships. I help couples heal. I teach them how to communicate in a healthy, effective way. They learn how to have hard conversations that end in deeper connection instead of deeper wounds. I also help single people navigate the dating world successfully & create healthy, loving partnerships. I teach people the relational skills they've always needed but were never taught so that they can move past issues that are keeping them from thriving.

These range from psychodynamic to solution focused therapies, as well as EMDR, mindfulness, cognitive therapy, narrative therapy, and gestalt and existential techniques.
I believe that we all struggle with trauma, and most mental health challenges stem from how one adapts to these experiences. I specialize in working with trauma, identifying how it is held in the body, the strategies we uphold as defense mechanisms, and how to negotiate with our inner self to move toward a healthy healing of mind and body. Coming from either a top down approach for those thinker types, or a bottom up approach for those feeler types, we will compassionately reconnect the mind and body, in order to achieve relief and greater connectivity to self and others.

I have been trained in psychodynamic and gestalt therapy and trauma and attachment theory and ASCH Level I clinical hypnosis.
People often seek therapy to resolve past experiences and life complexities and the decision to enter therapy may carry feelings of ambivalence and uncertainty. I believe that therapy is most effective when persons are offered an environment that is inviting, attentive, collaborative, affirming, and safe. Subsequently, my goal is to provide a challenging, but non-judgmental and encouraging atmosphere for persons to explore concerns and difficulties as a means of achieving desired change.

I practice Gestalt Therapy and EMDR to help individuals learn about and work through any past traumatic experiences, as well difficulties with substance use.
Can you image a life where you are able to treat yourself with kindness and compassion? A life where you can discover the roots of your pain and learn new, healthy ways of approaching daily difficulties? A life where you don’t need to use alcohol and substances to cope with your pain? Whether you are new to therapy and curious about how therapy can benefit you, or are returning to healing, I am here to help. All that is needed to start this process is a willingness to be curious about your life, which is the first step to initiating the changes you would like to make.

Using a Humanistic and Gestalt therapeutic approach, together we will co-create a space where healing can be possible.
Life's complexities often give us transitions we may not be prepared for. My intent is to support and empower my clients as they learn how to support themselves. I hope to join you in gaining new clarity and perspective during times of change. I have worked with individuals who are chronically ill, older adults and their families for over a decade and have a particular appreciation for supporting those during the sacredness of end of life. Grief and loss is a complicated process, let me join you as we navigate living through loss together.

I am a certified Gestalt and IFS therapist, and am also certified in Dr.
You look in the mirror and see the "bad" traits. That you're not thin enough, not smart enough, not "good" enough. You realize that these traits were projected there by someone else--a past partner, or maybe even a parent. You want to recover from perhaps a lifetime of emotional pain and narcissistic abuse but you don't know where to begin...I specialize in treating individuals who are adult children of narcissists, and those who may be struggling with disordered eating and body image issues. I can support you in developing your inner strengths so that when you look in the mirror it will be your true self staring back at you.

My therapeutic approach includes training and influence from relational, Gestalt , internal family systems, complex trauma-informed, and mindfulness therapies.
I believe people have an innate resilience and strength to get through life's challenges and traumas. I also believe it can be valuable to have the support of a patient, non-judgmental listener and confidant to unpack what these difficult experiences are like for us. I frequently work with people who are looking for support with their experience of anxiety, depression, exploration of their gender identity, and traumatic histories. I have an interest in working with folks who are part of the LGBTQIA+ communities, though I work with clients from many different backgrounds.

Trained in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)—a third-wave Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)—and Gestalt Therapy, my approach focuses on developing mindfulness skills to improve present-moment awareness, offering clients the chance to understand themselves on a deeper level.
As a psychotherapist, I am relational, client-centered, and curious. This approach enables me to guide clients towards a deeper, richer understanding of themselves, from their strengths to their triggers to the coping strategies that work and the values that make life make sense. I have ample experience helping young adults, persons in recovery, and adults of all backgrounds clarify the impacts of their "big T" and/or "little t" traumas, lessening the impacts of anxious and depressed moods and clarifying the steps they must take to maximize their relationships with the world, others, and, most importantly, themselves.

You don't have to suffer alone. There is help. We can work together so that you experience a more fulfilled life. I work with clients on issues such as depression, anxiety, relationship problems, spiritual issues, and loss and grief. I can also help clients struggling with trauma, ADHD, and sleep difficulties. Primarily I use a psychodynamic perspective, appreciating the underlying causes to the difficulties we face. I also integrate techniques from other approaches, such as gestalt , emotion-focused therapy, short-term psychodynamic therapy, mindfulness, and cognitive-behavioral therapy, depending on the client's unique problems and goals.

My goal is to learn about who you are, what you want, and what is necessary to create change. I provide a supportive and transformational therapeutic experience that helps you to feel better.

I am a certified Gestalt Therapist and will help you become more present and aware of your body-emotions.
Developing a relationship with a compassionate, skilled therapist who can help you be present with current life stressors or past traumas, can be an important part of healing. In my practice I work with adults and adolescents with a variety of issues but specialize in issues related to sexual trauma (childhood or adult), childhood emotional/physical abuse, domestic violence, lack of parental attunement, and growing up in a home where alcohol and drugs were abused. I also work with couples who are experiencing challenges in communication, connection and how past trauma effects this. I provide clinical supervision to therapists.

I draw from relational, Gestalt , trauma informed & social justice models.
Burnout from work or caregiving. Compassion fatigue from doing important work in the world: teaching, health care, activism. Being a parent & coping with the collective trauma we are all managing during the COVID pandemic. These are some of the themes that come up in my work with clients where I believe we truly cannot go it alone. There is true power in getting support and sharing your truth, and I bring an open heart & humility to our work together. I will work collaboratively with you to support you in living a fuller, more connected life - wherever you are in your journey of self-discovery & healing.

Through a combination of emotionally focused, gestalt , narrative, and mindfulness-based therapies, we’ll work to address faulty beliefs and longstanding BS.
I work with clients 12 years and up from a wide range of genders and backgrounds. I have a particular focus in “men’s” issues, relationships, sexuality and grief. I am a Jewish, LGBTQ+, kink-affirming artist who is proudly in recovery. I hold a masters degree in Mental Health Counseling from the University of Pennsylvania. I have also spent considerable time in India studying Tibetan meditation and Ashtanga yoga. I bring all of that with me into the therapy space. What will you bring?

Gestalt Therapists
Gestalt therapy seeks to integrate the client's behaviors, feelings, and thinking, so that their intentions and actions may be aligned for optimal mental health. The therapist will help the client become more self-aware, to live more in the present, and to assume more responsibility for taking care of themself. Techniques of gestalt therapy include confrontation, dream analysis, and role playing.
