Sexuality, gender, race, donor conceived people, masculinity: identity is complex. Wholeness is possible when your complexity can be held.

About My Clients

My clients are interested in how they became who they are: both the parts they cherish & the painful parts they can barely talk about. Like them, you may struggle to remember aspects of yourself that you love because difficult experiences overwhelm you. You may find yourself repeating patterns that you returned to despite vowing not to. Seeing things you don't like about yourself, you may resort to self-criticism. You may need a thought partner to sort through difficulty.

My Background and Approach

People willing to work on something that is painful or where they feel stuck can make good use of therapy. Relief from self-doubt and self-judgement is not a simple endeavor. Our work together is about change: both within you and in the life you construct for yourself. You may be suffering with discrimination, invisibility, anxiety, fragility, self-doubt, self-hate, fear or feeling like a fraud. You may be going through a loss, job change, relationship challenge or end, infertility, mid-life re-assessment, divorce, financial instability or any number of crises. In response to pain you may either act out or become immobilized. Either way you may not be living the life you want. My previous practice in New York and Connecticut included individual, family & group therapy. My clinical degree is from Smith College School for Social Work after getting an undergraduate degree in physics from Harvard University.
