Psychologist in Philadelphia, PA


About My Clients

Life is stressful! Relationships, work, oppressive systems, exploring sexual and gender identities...these are some of issues that bring clients and me together. In each of these situations, we creatively sift through a variety of emotions and pulls, and the anxiety and depressed feelings that often emerge. In our relationship, we'll work to expand patterns of thoughts, behaviors, and feelings and explore new solutions to reach your goals.

My Background and Approach

I am trained as a counseling psychologist. My first goal in our work together is to get to know you so that I understand how the issue that's bringing you in has come up in your life and how it's impacting your well-being, relationships, and day-to-day life. I use therapeutic approaches that address thoughts, behaviors (Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy); emotional life and family dynamics; cultural context (Multicultural and Feminist Therapy); awareness and consciousness (mindfulness and breath work) and relationships (Interpersonal Process Therapy), along with a trauma orientation that includes EMDR and parts work. I am EMDR trained. Whatever approach we take, our process will be collaborative and engaging. As a therapist, I bring a number of years of experience in providing therapy, training therapists - and even experiences in going to therapy. I am a Pennsylvania licensed psychologist who is authorized by PSYPACT to practice interjurisdictional tele psychology.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

As an LGTBQ community member, I've hit some bumps along the road. And in trying to find my way, I've learned so much about how my path has been shaped in part by my own hard work, partially by work in therapy, and partially by systemic issues that are not entirely in my control. Along my journey, I've found that everyone has a story that's worth sharing with someone else. My approach in therapy does assume that large social systems, along with family, community, and social experiences, influence people's development. My understanding of people and of the world is also informed by a longstanding meditation practice.
