Therapist specializing in LGBTQIA+ clients, trauma, sexuality, and relationships
Clinical Social Worker in Philadelpha, PA
Supervised by Jennifer Seip, LMFT
As a narrative therapist, I believe that the stories we tell ourselves matter. Using narrative therapy I help my clients identify the unconscious beliefs and narratives that are shaping your choices and experiences. Together, we'll take a hard look your at the current stories, and write new, more helpful ones.
As a clinical social worker, I believe that powerful systems shape our individual realities. Utilizing feminist therapy approaches, I work with clients to explore the impacts of culture and oppression on their lived experiences and goals. This means that sessions with me will always involve an acknowledgement that our identities (race, sexuality, gender, age, ability, etc.) shape our experiences.
I believe sexuality is a critical piece of many people's human experience and should be source of connection, play, and joy. As a sex therapist, I work to create a nonjudgemental and informed space for kinky, polyamorous, and non-monogamous clients to bring their full selves to therapy. Whether you're looking for a place to process a kinky identity or simply want a therapist who gets it in your corner, I'm here to help.
Traumatic experiences (big and small) can impact how we relate to ourselves, others, and the world around us for years or even decades. The aftermath of trauma looks different for everyone, but many of my clients report ongoing experiences of depression, anxiety, anger, poor sleep, and troubled relationships. But there is hope: If we work together, I'll utilize various mind-body approaches to help you feel safe again, move through your trauma, and grow in the direction of your goals.
As a queer and nonbinary person, my most meaningful experiences in therapy personally have been with therapists who shared my queer identities. Whether you are questioning your sexuality or gender identity, considering the coming out process, or need support navigating life as a queer person, I'm here to help.
