My Background and Approach

As a clinician, I draw primarily from relational-psychodynamic and attachment theory. I utilize interventions from family systems, emotionally focused therapy for couples, somatic approaches and sometimes mindfulness and behavioral therapy. I seek to create working relationships that include safety, attunement and trust through collaborating on goals and remaining non-judgmental and transparent with my reflections and questions. I strive to see my clients holistically and uniquely, while remaining aware of the larger cultural context and complexity of identities that exist within each person.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I have been a clinical social worker since I graduated from Smith College School for Social Work in 2010. Prior to that I completed a bachelors degree in Peace, Justice and Conflict Studies, from Goshen College. I have had the privilege of working with folks from many walks of life, including youth in the foster care system as well as tech executives. Over the years, I have come to see that while suffering is different for each person, we all experience pain and hardship. In that, I approach my profession as a spiritual and social justice calling. In supporting people as they connect to the authenticity of their own emotions, the universality of the human experience tends to reveal itself. In that, I hold great hope for human connection, compassion and social action across lines of difference. I have a strong desire and passion to work with LGBTQ people, activists/social justice oriented people, as well as anyone wanting to look at issues of privilege and power.

  • Agnosticism
  • Atheism
  • Buddhism
  • Christianity
