About My Clients

I am an LGBTQ+ affirming therapist. If you have been looking for an LGBTQ+ affirming therapist who understands the issues unique to our community, please feel free to reach out. Over the years I have had great rapport with my clients who identify as LGBTQ+.

My Background and Approach

I work with clients online by video session (Telehealth) in all of Arizona and New York. I am a Therapist (LCSW) in Private Practice. I have over 10 years of experience in the field of Mental Health. I hold a graduate degree from New York University. I am currently *Accepting New Clients.* I am in-network with Aetna, Cigna, Optum, Oscar, Oxford and United. My approach for treating anxiety, worry and panic uses a combination of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).

My Values as a Therapist

In Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) we focus on the present and look at ways of managing stress, worry and anxiety better. We will look at some behaviors and thinking patterns non-judgmentally, and work together to build a life that commits to your values and where you want to be. I look forward to connecting with you!
