I consider you to be the expert of your own experience. Therefore, I will always ask my clients what they determine their therapeutic goals to be. Along the way, I will offer observations, reflections, and suggestions in order to help facilitate this process. I strive to create a collaborative, open, and honest dynamic in which feedback is not only always welcome, but strongly encouraged.
I have been told that my personality is marked by humor, playfulness, compassion, and dedication. These characteristics shape my therapeutic approach. Therapy sessions are where you get to laugh, cry, vent, imagine, and explore. I find that a healthy sense of humor and play serve as a guide in this process. My sense of compassion and dedication keeps me strongly connected to all of my clients; after all, therapeutic work happens in relationship!

MA, Drama Therapy, New York University
After graduating with my MA in Drama Therapy from NYU, I spent two years working as a creative arts therapist at The Animation Project, a non-profit workforce development program that utilizes digital art technology to promote therapeutic growth. From there, I went on to work for Dwellness In-Home Psychological Services, providing Telehealth and in-person therapy for individuals of all ages. In addition to continuing my work with Dwellness, I am thrilled to now be practicing privately, specializing in providing a safe, body-positive, and sex-positive space for individuals of all sexual orientations and genders.
