My Approach to Helping

Relax. Stay awhile. You deserve to feel heard and understood. I help lgbtqia+ clients in their 20s & 30s understand relationships and build closer, more loving connections. Are you feeling alone? Stuck in the same old relationship patterns? Want to deepen your communication? Anxiety about dating? Many of us have blocks to feeling close with others. In a cis-hetero-patriarchal world, many of us have survived interpersonal trauma. But healing is possible. Together, we got this. Now, let's get to work.

All genders and sexual orientations are warmly welcome. I identify as gay, and that experience of otherness has always informed my therapy practice and my stance as a clinician. An anti-oppressive lens is central to my work.

If you want to better understand your relational patterns, you're in the right place. Therapy with me will help you feel closer and safer with people, especially the people you love. You can flourish in your relationships, and I'd love to help you get there.​

More Info About My Practice

My approach is warm, collaborative, relaxed, and conversational. I don't lecture you and I don't "teach" you. We work together. I create a safe environment where you'll feel validated. You'll be productively challenged to face the struggles that brought you into therapy.
Weekly individual appointments are 45 minutes in length and take place online via a telehealth platform. This means you get to choose any comfortable space for your therapy sessions. The only strict rule is that telehealth clients must be in the state of New York during sessions due to state licensing guidelines.
Appointments are scheduled on a weekly basis.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

You might feel nervous before the consultation call or the first session. That's okay. I'm just going to ask you some questions about yourself and your relational style and the conversation will get flowing. I'll move at your pace and I'm happy to hang out with you in the shallow end for a while. We'll move to deeper waters when you're ready.

Groups I Work With

    We all bring our identities into the therapy space. In order for us to have an authentic connection in our work together, it's important to acknowledge our intersectional identities.

I make space for conversations about identity, privilege, and power in our work together. All are welcome.
