About Me

As a licensed clinician, with over ten years of therapy experience, and many more on the other side of the couch, I approach this work with a unique passion and approach for each individual. I consider it my honor and privilege to be let inside your world. I‘m a queer, non-binary, ethically non-monogamous, neurodivergent, kinky person who lives with chronic illness and pain who comes from an Ashkenazi Jewish background. I integrate somatic techniques, parts work, EMDR, attachment work, mindfulnes, as well as some DBT and CBT informed therapy. What does all this mean? I assist you in bringing together the connection between your body and your mind and you end up with a strong foundation of skills as well as a deeper understanding of yourself. Have you been to therapy before for trauma and not found it effective? Trauma/Unresolved Trauma/Attachment Trauma/PTSD/C-PTSD are some of my areas of expertise being a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional. I also work with what is known as Religious Trauma Syndrome, a relatively new term specific to trauma experienced by those who were part of high control groups. My Jewish background helps inform my understanding of epigenetic trauma, with the understanding that my experience does not speak for others, even within the Jewish community.
