My Approach to Helping

Welcome! I specialize in working with LGBTQ+ Adults. I also specialize in anxiety, worry, and panic. I work with clients online by video session (Telehealth) in all of Arizona and New York. I am a Therapist (LCSW) in Private Practice. I have over 10 years of experience in the field of Mental Health. I hold a graduate degree from New York University. I am currently *Accepting New Clients.* I am in-network with Aetna, Cigna, Optum, Oscar, Oxford, and United.

More Info About My Practice

I am an LGBTQ+ affirming therapist. If you have been looking for an LGBTQ+ affirming therapist who understands the issues unique to our community, please feel free to reach out. Over the years I have had great rapport with my clients who identify as LGBTQ+.

My approach for treating anxiety, worry, and panic uses a combination of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). In ACT and CBT, we focus on the present and look at ways of managing stress, worry, and anxiety better. We will look at some behaviors and thinking patterns non-judgmentally, and work together to build a life that commits to your values and where you want to be. I look forward to connecting with you!
