About Me

Patients describe me as insightful, invested, humorous and grounded. I believe that therapy can and should look different for each person engaging in it, while also being rooted in evidence-based interventions and clear goals. I have a background in creative/performing arts and years of experience providing highly effective treatments for trauma, depression and anxiety including CBT, Trauma-Focused CBT, Cognitive Processing Therapy and EMDR. I have special interest and experience in working with the LGBTQ+ community as well as with medical/mental health professionals.
