About My Clients

If you know, or suspect, that you need mental health care outside the status quo, we may work well together! It’s normal to feel unwell in an unjust world. Many of us are struggling to find care that recognizes the political in mental health, encourages creativity, and focuses on experience over diagnosis. I aim to honor and meet these needs. If your body-mind is suffering, you're not crazy, you're not failing at being happy, and I'd be humbled to learn about your story.

My Background and Approach

My approach is flexible and incorporates feminist, anti-racist, trauma-informed, anarchist, body positive, and LGBTQIA-affirming practice. If it feels right for you, I can offer empowerment-focused knowledge, resources, and coping skills for us to experiment with. I have the most to offer in the following areas: trauma (including intergenerational, historical, complex, and interpersonal trauma), painful relationships with food, mind-body connection, social isolation, and healing from narcissistic abuse. We’ll figure out what feeling well/alive/free/safe means for you, how to move towards that, and what to do when much of the world around you systematically harms your health. We can also get creative in connecting to other resources for healing and wellness. I will never ask you to adapt to oppressive systems. I’m here to create a different experience with you, in our own space, that’s focused on being what you need it to be.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My cooperative mental health practice, Alliance Psychological Services of New York, was founded upon anarchist and intersectional feminist values. We believe in non-hierarchy and resistance to authority. We actively oppose the mental health industrial complex and its use of the power to define "sanity" as a method of social control. I use radical leftist sources of education and accountability in the ongoing development of my social consciousness, and I participate in a peer group for radical leftist therapists. Building authentic connection and community is crucial, both in my life and in my work as a therapist.
