About My Clients

I utilize my experience working with folks from many different walks of life. I provide support to individuals looking for answers to questions and problems impacting their lives -- I have extensive experience gender- and sexuality-affirming talk therapy to adults and adolescents, with most of my experience working with LGBQ individuals, trans and non-binary individuals, students, creative people, parents, sex workers (present or past), individuals processing loss, and helping professionals.

My Background and Approach

I have been providing psychotherapy since 2009. I see patients privately at my two office locations, and I am a clinical supervisor at The LGBTQ Center. Formerly I have worked within the NYC queer community as a staff therapist at Callen-Lorde Community Health Center, as a staff therapist at the Ali Forney Center, and with older-adolescent students within the NYC & Chicago school systems who have complex trauma and/or learning disabilities. Social justice activism is an important part of my practice ethos as well, both in participation and in providing therapy to other activists and creatives. My style is largely process-based and exploratory, with a heavy focus on relational and psychodynamic therapy modalities.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

In addition to providing psychotherapy I work as an illustrator and painter. My Java Street therapy location is also the home of my art studio. I utilize art as both my preferred form of self care and my favorite mode of creative expression. I am passionate about body positivity, relationship anarchy, climate change activism, sex workers' rights, and the political power of art. As a white person I also feel it is crucial to consider, acknowledge, and challenge the ways in which privilege and capitalism contribute to systemic oppression. I draw from my experience as both a patient and a therapist to provide a non-judgmental and open environment.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
