M.A. Marriage and Family Therapy, Syracuse University

Gender Expansive Support Training, Syracuse University

When you feel understood and validated, therapy is the most effective. That's why I want to work with you to create a space that is simply founded on that safety and acceptance. You will be able to establish achievable goals, explore past experiences that are affecting you, and be challenged to lean into healing experiences.

I know that therapy can be very hard and not every therapist is going to be the right fit for you. But with me, you can expect our therapeutic relationship to be one where you are allowed, even encouraged, to express your joys, struggles, and sorrows. Because once you learn to trust in yourself, you will heal.

The way I show up in session is with warmth, humor, and sensitivity. I am going to help you celebrate your victories, laugh along with your jokes, and hold space for what causes you pain. We are seldom taught what it takes to get better, how to work through trauma rather than just deal with it, or even what the first step is to healing ourselves. Let this be the space and chance to take that first step, I want to be there for every step along the path that leads to your flourishing.

My practice is primarily an integrative approach rooted in Emotionally Focused and Experiential therapies. This means that a session with me will focus on creating a space where you feel free, capable, and competent in expressing your emotions. I will work with you to help incorporate tools and strategies into your daily life so you can become the person you know you are.

I love working with clients from all communities, and I especially value the work I am privileged to do with clients who are LGBTQIA+, BIPOC, neurodivergent, non-monogamous, kinky, disabled, or sex workers. I strive for a trauma informed practice. I believe therapy should be for everyone, and I am happy to work with you to make sure you feel comfortable to fully show up in therapy.

I am white, nonbinary, kink positive, pro-sex work, body positive, and fully believe in every person’s ability to flourish. I am passionate about people’s rights, advocacy, and joy. I strive to create a space of acceptance and support, both in my therapeutic practice and day to day life. In my personal life I enjoy longboarding, taking my dog on walks, and trying as many new hobbies as I can.
