As a therapist, I aim to create a warm, attuned space where you can bring your full self, and get a better understanding of struggles you’re experiencing and patterns that are showing up in your life. Maybe there are ways you’ve been surviving for a long time that you want to let go of, while honoring how far they got you. Maybe there are dynamics in your relationships that you’re hoping to get help making sense of, or shifting.
I hope that by listening carefully and showing up with genuine curiosity and compassion, I can support you in feeling a deeper sense of ease and stronger connection to self and others. I believe that you are the expert on your own life, and I bring a deep respect for self-determination and a commitment to challenging white supremacy, transphobia, ableism and other forms of oppression to all of my work. I am collaborative, relational, and trauma informed.
I’m working towards my MSW degree, and am currently in my second year at Smith School of Social Work, under the clinical supervision of Leah Cohen, LCSW. I come to this work from organizing work to end prisons, jails, and other forms of involuntary confinement and I bring an understanding of how racial capitalism is inherently traumatizing. I have experience working with queer, trans, and austistic adolescents and supporting people who are navigating depression, anxiety, and trauma.
I’m a white, queer and trans, disabled person. When I’m not working as a therapist or organizer I’m often (very slowly) teaching myself guitar, learning about plants, or cuddling with my cat.
