Master of Arts, Clinical Mental Health Counseling
Licensed Mental Health Counselor
I work best with people who are seeking to uncover parts of themselves that have been denied or unaccepted in order to create a fully expressed life. As your therapist, I can provide a space that is dedicated to your own path with full attunement.
Some of the things I work with include exploration of identity, addiction, codependency, depression, anxiety, and developing boundaries. I specialize in working with people to heal from the impact of trauma, specifically developmental trauma from complex family systems.
I arrived at my work as a therapist through my own deep healing journey. It is through this experience that I witnessed the resiliency and strength that occurs when we are given a space to be truly seen. More generally, I am a queer therapist based in Oakland practicing psychotherapy via telehealth. As a therapist, I am grounded, curious, warm, and attentive.
I hold a bachelor of arts degree in neuroscience and religion from Arcadia University, followed by a master of arts in clinical mental health counseling from Marywood University. Most recently, I worked at the Alcohol and Drug Council in New York, where I worked with individuals navigating their relationship to substances.
I bring curiosity and compassion into our sessions to better understand your history, experience, and personal truth. While my approach is curated to your personal experience, I also draw from Relational Psychotherapy, Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Trauma-Informed Psychotherapy and Internal Family Systems.
