The most important aspect in beginning therapy is finding a therapist who is a good fit for you, one who you connect with and feel you can trust. I believe therapy is most effective when it is a collaborative effort. I am not a wizard with all the answers, here to dole out my sage, bearded wisdom and tell you what to do. My role is not to pretend I know what is “best for you” (you probably have enough of those types in your life already!)
The truth is, I can learn just as much from you and your experiences as you can from me. I hope that by approaching our therapeutic relationship as equals, we can work together to mold your therapy experience into something that works for you and helps you reach your goals.
I use an integrative approach drawing from person-centered, psychodynamic, narrative, strengths-based, feminist, and cognitive-behavioral therapies, among others. Some areas I have particular interest and experience in are trauma and how it affects the brain and body, grief and loss, chronic illness and disability, consensual non-monogamy/polyamory, LGBT issues, intersectionality and how our layered identities impact our experience of the world, and the destigmatization of mental illness. I am also very passionate about expanding access to mental health care, especially for members of marginalized communities.
I am completing my final year in NYU’s counseling for mental health and wellness program, with an additional certificate in LGBT health, education, and social services. I previously obtained a BA in psychology from the University of Tennessee.
