Let's Work Together

My Approach: 

I approach therapy from a holistic and trauma-informed lens, utilizing emotion-focused, body-based, mindfulness-informed modalities as well as more traditional therapeutic approaches like psychodynamic and CBT (cognitive-behavioral.) I specialize in working with issues of complex and adulthood trauma, sexual violence and domestic violence, LGBTQ+ populations, substance use and addiction, alternative sexualities such as polyamory/non-monogamy, kink/BDSM, and sex work. I also believe that forms of social oppression such as racism, sexism, ableism, heterosexism, and so on, operate as traumas and stressors as well and thus, are of clinical concern as barriers to wellness. My practice is grounded in the principles of non-judgment, positive regard, harm reduction, and compassion. I earned my Masters in Social Work from the Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College.

How to start working with me as a therapy client:

I practice with the private therapy practice City Therapy. Make sure the rates and insurance work for you here. If it does and you'd like to work with me, use the "request appointment" link and select "Brooklyn" as the location on the form. Further down on the form, you can select my name. We are currently doing all telehealth (remote) appointments.
