I believe in a strengths-based approach to treatment, which means I start by working to understand who my client is, what their concerns/goals are, and how they can best be approached. This allows me to collaborate with my clients to develop effective coping skills for substance use, anxiety, depression, adjustment to aging, grief, relationship stress and boundary setting, or reactions to trauma. I also have experience with queer populations (LGBTQ+). I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in Pennsylvania with 10 years of professional experience in nonprofit and an additional 4 years in therapy practice.

I’ve helped clients across the lifespan with issues like anxiety, depression, substance use, trauma, grief + loss, life transitions, identity development, and sociopolitical stress + climate anxiety.
Whether you’re feeling stuck, overwhelmed, numb, hopeless, or just curious - talking to someone can help. With the right therapist, you’ll learn to identify patterns in your thinking and behavior, improve moment-to-moment awareness and self-regulation, and deepen your understanding of the circumstances around your suffering - and eventually come to terms with them and/or change them altogether.

I specialize in working with clients who struggle with co-occurring disorders, Bipolar Disorders, and substance use disorders.
I work alongside my clients to help them feel seen and heard, achieve their goals, and live their best possible lives. It is very important to me that I provide a place that feels safe, nonjudgmental, and supportive, which is the foundation of therapy and helps facilitate change. The goals that people work on in therapy can involve anything that is important to them- learning healthier ways to express anger, finding new ways to cope with the effects of past traumas, stabilizing mood episodes (e.g., mania, depression), maintaining and establishing sobriety, improving their relationship with themself and others, and more.

You've been through some shit, and you've realized that it's fucked you up more than you want to admit. You've tried dealing with things in your own way but you feel isolated, frustrated, and irritated. Passion, fun, and focus are hard to come by these days. You've tried to avoid feelings, situations, or conversations that remind you of what you've been through. But now, even avoidance isn't working. You turn to things outside yourself - relationships, substance use, job performance, and being perfect - to define you and keep you going. You want to find a better way to manage your life.

My individual and couples work is informed by psychodynamic, relational, and trauma-focused modalities, with a focus on topics surrounding anxiety & depression, relationships, sex, kink/bdsm, sexuality, gender, and substance use.
My 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 use EMDR to help integrate the physical and emotional parts of trauma; culture-centered therapy and curiosity to help you identify ways to balance your cultures; Harm Reduction Psychotherapy for substance use to understand the meanings drugs hold in our lives.
Some experiences cannot be put into words and yet their impact lasts a lifetime. Tendrils of that impact are apparent in most aspects of our lives. I specialize in working with such experiences, whether you call it traumatic, something else, or nothing at all. I have had years of experience in crisis management, interpersonal relationship building, and coping skills support, all from a culturally-informed perspective. My culture does influence my perspective and responses in life so I hold people’s cultural identity as central to their therapy.

As an individual therapist I have experience treating anxiety, depression, shame and self-doubt, substance use, and family challenges.
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 have over a decade of experience working with clients struggling with a broad range of complex and single traumas, substance use, anxiety, depression, and more.
There are countless ways I like to describe my work, but I often think of therapy as similar to mountaineering: We tether to another person as we build trust and explore the natural landscape of our humanness. At times treacherous and scary; at times awe-inspiring and profound. The point is not to curate this expanse, but instead to build familiarity so that we can be more sure-footed as we walk through our lives with increasing skill... Comfort and ease within the chaos and uncertainty that can be everyday life.
