About My Clients

My clients are individuals living with anxiety, depression, and PTSD related to chronic illness and/or lived experience of violence (individual, community, intergenerational, historical) and are seeking a safe and compassionate space for tending to and processing the past, connecting to the present, growing skills, and healing. I specialize in working with those living with complex medical diagnoses (or multiple symptoms with no diagnosis), challenging prognoses, and "watchful waiting."

My Background and Approach

I am a licensed clinical social worker (Washington, Oregon, New York) and psychotherapist with additional certification in the treatment of traumatic stress, and holistic health counseling and nutrition. I have been an adjunct instructor on trauma-informed care and abuse and trauma at the graduate schools of social work of Columbia University and Portland State University. I believe in working with every client as a whole person, not just as a collection of symptoms. My approach is trauma-informed, insight-oriented, mindfulness-based, cognitive-behavioral (but eclectic), and most importantly collaborative. I partner with my clients to create new awareness and understanding of the impact of life experience on personal narrative, feelings, and behavior to develop helpful and safe coping skills to effect lasting change in overall well-being. Perhaps even more importantly, I listen. You know yourself and your life experience best. I truly consider it an honor to be a part of your process.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My interest in social justice stems from growing up as a queer kid in 1980s NYC watching my father work tirelessly to make sure the law served those impacted by violent crime (including police brutality). And later as a documentary TV producer where I had the privilege of meeting people from all walks of life - many of them survivors (and perpetrators) of violent crime. After 10 years, disillusioned by working in media that focused more on ratings than people, I quit and went to social work graduate school where I worked with survivors of domestic violence, sexual /physical assault, gun violence, child abuse, and medical trauma in community mental health clinics and as the crime victim social worker in a large public hospital in NYC. It was in these spaces that I found my calling. I am also a person living with invisible disabilities and have had to learn firsthand how to navigate ableism, including within medical systems.
