About My Clients

You are ready to celebrate the full you. You dream of moving beyond whatever is keeping you stuck in unhealthy patterns. You want to respond instead of react, improve your connection to others, and finally be grounded in your own body. My primary specializations are gender and sexuality, depression, anxiety, trauma, perinatal/postpartum adjustment, and life transitions. *I am currently offering in-person socially distanced outdoor therapy in Stone Ridge, NY and online therapy via secure video.*

My Background and Approach

I received a Master's Degree in Social Work from SUNY Albany in 2015. Prior to attending graduate school, I worked as a case manager, organic farmer, and environmental educator. I believe that understanding a person’s whole self is essential to create a healthy, non-judgmental client-therapist relationship. My approach is dynamic and personalized to foster a positive therapeutic space. Therapy with me can include creative arts activities, mindfulness, EMDR, CBT, and various other body based trauma informed approaches.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am an out Queer therapist. Because trauma, shame, and oppression are so often intertwined, I hold social justice at the center of my therapeutic practice. I approach therapy through an intersectional feminist lens that actively seeks to name the ways in which racism, sexism, transphobia, homophobia, fatphobia, and classism have an impact on your life. I have signed the Health at Every Size and GALAP pledges and am available to provide free gender-affirming letters as needed.
