Profile
“I have trained in various modalities and take an integrative approach to treatment, incorporating unstructured psychodynamic concepts as well as more guided frameworks that provide clients with tools to reduce their distress in the near-term.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I was drawn to working as a mental health professional after enjoying and greatly benefiting from my own individual therapy. In particular, I support the LGBTQ+ community and those seeking to change their relationship to substances of abuse. To that end, I have trained in various settings, including community mental health, higher education (e.g., college counseling), and spaces devoted to the needs of the LGBTQ+ community.

What should someone know about working with you?
I typically like to spend a session getting to know the particular needs of the client in whatever way they wish to share with me, which is to say I take an unstructured approach during intake. I think fit is essential and am open to meeting with folks as a means of empowering them to trust their instincts in finding the best care option. I view progress as steady but non-linear, with goals set according to the client's perspective and also with the understanding that therapy requires patience and steady engagement in order to achieve those goals.
How do your own core values shape your approach to therapy?
I approach therapy as a means of identifying the strength(s), resilience, and adaptive ways of meeting challenges that each of us has cultivated over our lifetimes and honoring and seeking to enhance those core abilities.
