I am a collaborative, calm, empathic, non-judgmental and flexible therapist, and I am pleased that you have found your way to my page.
Clinical Social Worker in Brooklyn, NY
My primary and most practiced therapeutic framework is Modern Psychodynamic Therapy, with attention to building the therapeutic alliance and, with the grounding of a strong relationship, facilitate a client's insight with regard to habit patterns, relationships, and attachment styles, exploring both childhood and present day experiences.
I have studied Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and regularly integrate techniques from this modality into my practice, with special attention to the existence and impact of unhelpful and intrusive thoughts.
I am part of a network of queer clinicians and feel quite at home supporting clients in exploring matters related to LGBTQIA+ identities.
I have worked with and written support letters for trans and gender-expansive clients seeking gender affirming surgeries.
As a white therapist with experience in anti-racist organizing, I have worked closely with clients exploring their whiteness and privilege, providing an emotional container as they deepen their understanding of their own intersecting identities.
