Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Philadelphia, PA
Open and affirming practice! I particularly enjoy working with families and youth working through sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI) concerns, people of all ages coming for support with their own sexual orientation(s) and gender identity/identities, and queer folx looking for support in other areas of their lives beyond SOGI-specific issues but also looking for a therapist who understands intersectionality and interaction of SOGI on daily life experiences.
I'm particularly adept at supporting health care workers like doctors, nurses, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and students of health professions. Other professions I support when people are feeling burnout include code monkeys and tech workers, other therapists and professional helpers, teachers, and social or environmental justice workers.
I practice from an integrative harm reduction psychotherapy perspective with regard to substance use and other potentially addictive behaviors. By helping you define what your ideal relationship to substances or addictive behaviors looks like, we can run lots of small experiments to see what helps you get closer to that ideal. I'm also happy to support psychedelic integration and have no predetermined opinion about what your relationship to substances should or could be.
