My Approach to Helping

If you feel anxious, sad, overwhelmed, or stuck, if you are frustrated by your family or relationships, navigating a challenging life transition, or are worn out by disordered eating, my practice may be a good fit for you. My therapy style is collaborative, warm, and nonjudgmental, with room for humor. Together, we will work to improve your symptoms, gain a deeper understanding of your concerns and bring about lasting change.

I have extensive experience with college students, young adults, and mid-career professionals, with a particular focus on individuals navigating life transitions such as the postpartum period, relationship changes, and moves. I work well with clients who feel stuck professionally, struggle with work-life balance, or are considering a career change.

My Guiding Ethical Principles

I am firmly supportive of individuals of all sexual orientations, gender identities, faiths and national origins, full stop. I have felt particularly privileged to work with trans clients at all stages of exploration and transition, and with HIV+ individuals. I am sex positivekink-friendly, and work often with clients who are non-monogamous or childfree. I encourage exploration of intersectionality with all clients, and find this particularly fulfilling with individuals of color or first-generation American members of the LGBTQ+ community. Whether you are confident in your identities or beginning to explore and learn more about yourself, I look forward to supporting you in your path forward. While I do not currently treat suicidality, I spent three years volunteering for the Sunday 9pm to midnight shift at the National Suicide Hotline before pursuing my doctorate. It left me with a deep appreciation for human resilience through pain, and the importance of pets to our mental health.
