For over a decade, I have practiced social work in varying clinical settings, with a focus on acute care, behavioral change, and emotional management. In private practice, my focus and training has been directed toward therapeutic work specialized to the needs of people in the queer and sex-positive communities. Whether engaged in individual or relationship-focused therapy, we will take a strategic approach which honors your life experience and the certitude that you are your own best expert. We will blend concrete/strategic and emotional/behavioral approaches, to help create balance. Together, we will utilize a combination of mindfulness practice, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical-Behavior Therapy (DBT), Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, and Strategic Therapy, to help enact long-lasting change. I have received additional training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and am providing EMDR as supplemental treatment virtually, when appropriate.
