My Approach to Helping

I take my work very seriously, which means that I strive to take myself very much not-seriously. Some sessions, you may need to cry. Some sessions you may need to laugh. This is a space for healing and growth. The most necessary ingredients for both of these things are warmth and play. My sessions can best be described as an abundance of warmth and play.

I hold a Master of Applied Positive Psychology (MAPP) from University of Pennsylvania, which I obtained with a focus on positive sexuality and living your best sexual self. I hold a Master of Arts (MA) in Psychological Counseling and a Master of Education (EdM) in Mental Health Counseling from Columbia University, which I earned with a heavy emphasis on applying a social justice and multicultural lens to therapy. While at Columbia, I also received an Advanced Certificate in Sexuality, Women, and Gender with my focus on LGBTQQIA and open and polyamorous clients in therapy.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

You might have hesitations before trying therapy and that hesitation is incredibly valid--for so many reasons! I believe that successful therapy can only happen when you and your therapist are matched well. That is why I give a free, thirty-minute consultations so we can see how well we work together. If that sounds like something you're interested in, please feel free to message me or give me a call. I'll be looking forward to meeting you.
