Society tries to put us into binary boxes every day, and I believe in living life in the space in between. Therapy is a place where we can shed the expectations of others and give space for our authentic selves. Together we will explore your past experiences in order to identify your intentions for what comes next. You can rest assured that I will be here to help you navigate your self-exploration, but also you will need to be prepared to be in the driver’s seat. A mentor of mine told me, “One of the most caring things you can do for a person is holding them accountable.” I carry this motto into the therapeutic relationship as my style is direct but stems from a place of non-judgmental empathy. I practice LGBTQ+ affirmative therapy and also maintain an integrative relational and trauma-informed lens.
I received my bachelor’s degree in psychology, with a minor in philosophy, from Catholic University, and am equipped to work with issues surrounding religious trauma. I am currently a graduate student at New York University in a dual degree program for Counseling Mental Health & Wellness and LGBTQ+ studies.
