Not Accepting Clients

I am often described by clients as a warm, compassionate, calming, and collaborative therapist with a good sense of humor.

Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Clifton Park, NY

About My Clients

My clients tend to be older teenagers (15-17), college students/young adults (18-24), and adults (25-40). Many of my clients are talking about LGBTQ+ identities and topics, transition, life changes, anxiety, ADHD, autism, trauma, family, relationships, and sex/sexuality. I currently operate as a teletherapy only practice. My clients find that teletherapy appointments fit their schedules and allow them to attend therapy in the comfort of their own space.

My Background and Approach

I earned a Bachelor of Science (BS) in Psychology and a Master of Science (MSEd) in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the College of Saint Rose in Albany, New York. I began supervised work through internship and post-graduate practice on a clinical team working with people dually diagnosed with psychiatric disorders and intellectual, developmental, and/or genetic disorders. This work challenged me to become a more knowledgeable, flexible, and active therapist. I spent almost two years at a group private practice where I worked with primarily teens and young adults. I am now working as an independent private practice therapist and maintain peer-supervision relationships with other therapists. Therapy will be a little different for each person. Some therapy will feel like a conversation, sometimes we will learn and practice skills, I may teach on a topic, or we might talk about that tiktok you saw (even the funny one). We will talk about what combination will be best for you.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Would you believe that I wrote that I wanted to be a counselor in my 8th grade yearbook? I approach my personal life and therapy practice from many important values. I am queer/LGBTQ+ affirming, and I am part of the community myself. I am continually working on learning and re-learning, viewing the world from often overlapping viewpoints, and listening to voices with the most experience or expertise. I believe that every human has innate rights. I stand in solidarity with people and groups facing discrimination, oppression, or marginalization by the groups in power, decisions made by those in power, and the systems in place to maintain marginalization. I believe we must create a safe environment in therapy to discuss these realities without risk of pathologizing these experiences and worries. Wherever we can, we will include the strengths you have and the positives in your life. The good things are an important part of your life and we should celebrate those things together.
