About My Clients

I have lightheartedly told my clients that I don’t want them “to be my clients forever”, meaning I want you to find healing, connection, and relief as soon as possible. This requires all of us to do our parts both in and outside of our scheduled sessions. I work best with clients who are open to feedback, routinely complete assigned tasks between sessions, and are consistent with their care. I primarily serve intimate relationships but also work with individuals and families affected by trauma.

My Background and Approach

I have extensive training working with intimate partners who are seeking to rekindle connection, reconcile, or are in the discernment process. I also have specialized experience in working with queer/LGBTQ+ clients, especially those who were raised in non-affirming environments. I taught undergraduate courses in family trauma, family diversity, and intimate relationships and I currently conduct and consume research on a regular basis. I incorporate any relevant, current findings in my clinical work. ***My personality has been described as “gentle, but firm”, meaning compassionate and empathetic yet also driven to help with the change process. However, I also bring a healthy dose of humor to occasionally lighten the mood. Therapy can be fun, too! I strive to privilege the positive as we tackle difficult issues together.***I earned my Masters degree in 2016 and am a current PhD candidate at the University of Minnesota. I live in NY and I am finishing my dissertation remotely.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I bring an evidence-based, trauma-informed, and systems approach to individual and relational therapy. My clinical focus is primarily rooted in attachment theory, which states that we are all hard-wired for connection and that secure attachments with others are some of the greatest indicators of overall well-being. As such, many of our most profound healing experiences and deepest emotional wounds happen with those closest to us. It is my goal to help you explore your attachment history, identify patterns that contribute to gridlock issues, and then work to communicate your needs in new ways that strengthen connection, trust, and security in your present and future relationships.
