About My Clients

I work with a variety of adults individually and in relationships who present with issues such as depression, anxiety, and relationship issues. I like to work with young people in their twenties, , musicians, academics, rural residents, and children/grandchildren of Holocaust survivors. I am a sex positive therapist who is LGBT and polyamory friendly.

How I Can Help You

I have been licensed since 1981. I describe my approach as informal but professional. I am actively engaged, helping you learn how to help yourself. My theoretical orientation as a clinical social worker is that of Person-In-Environment, meaning that it is important to understand the person and their behavior in the context of the multiple environments in which they live. This involves a social justice orientation. The personal is political. I am a sex-positive therapist and also believe a harm reduction approach can be useful in dealing with behaviors such as the overuse of substances. I am primarily psychodynamic in individual therapy and am Gottman Level 2 trained in relationship therapy.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I identify as a white, cis gender, able bodied, pansexual polyamorous woman from a working class background. As the daughter of a Holocaust survivor, my personal mission is to do whatever I can to reduce human suffering. I am attracted to clinical social work because of its focus on the person-in-environment and its commitment to social justice.
