I believe that therapy is about more than "working things out." The therapeutic relationship is just that: a relationship. I provide a safe and supportive environment to express emotions that are often difficult to express in other settings; anger, grief, sadness, despair.

I use an approach called Systems Therapy. Have you noticed that there are reliable patterns in your family and relationships? Maybe conversations escalate in a very predictable way. We all exist in a system of relationships; family, friends, co-workers, your relationship with teachers, the grocery store staff, and so on. We engage with different components of these systems through interconnectedness, circular dependency, or even by strict cut off. How we show up in relationships is a direct result of the relationships that created who we are.

Feminist and Queer Theory both serve as tools to look at the intersection of your identities; sexuality, gender, socioeconomic status, immigration status, ability, etc. Each of these individual identities offer their own strengths and challenges; feminist and queer theory looks at how the culmination of your identities have shaped who you are.

Using both of these theories, I incorporate aspects of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), as well as Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) into my practice alongside traditional talk therapy. I certainly do not have strict rules for sessions, and if we end up playing Uno, Trivial Pursuit or even Charades, it's clearly what you found to be helpful, and that's what I care about.

It is my hope to work with you to better understand yourself, and create a sense of safety within yourself. No person exists in a vacuum, so I will encourage you to reflect on your past, and how it influences your present. I believe that lasting change requires diving deep to address deep rooted patterns.

Are you ready to work with a therapist who gets you?

I work with preteens, teenagers, and young adults. We focus on issues like identity formation, trauma, body image, and disordered eating, and they get to bring their authentic selves to the therapy space. As a queer person, I understand how important it is to feel safe in bringing your whole self to therapy. I'm here to listen to your story and let you be the expert on your life.

I received both my undergraduate and graduate degrees in social work from West Chester University of Pennsylvania. Trauma theory and somatic theory are the guiding principles behind my practice; I believe it is important to understand how our past experiences influence our present reactions. Additional perspectives such as systems theory and minority stress theory help me to conceptualize my clients and their experiences within a broader culture--none of us exist in a bubble, and your therapist should acknowledge the ways in which your identity shapes your experience in the world.

I practice through an anti-oppression framework that seeks to be trans and queer affirming, anti-racist, and espouse the principles of Health at Every Size. The modalities that I use most often in practice are narrative therapy and acceptance and commitment therapy.

When we're jumping from task to task, event to event, and screen to screen, it can be easy to lose track of who we are and want we want for ourselves. As a therapist, I strive to create an intentional space for self-exploration, healing, and connection. Reach out and connect with me for individual and family sessions; let's grow together.
