Trauma-Informed Psychotherapy

I pride myself on providing thoughtful, nonjudgmental care based in psychology and social work practice. I specialize in helping adolescents and adults, particularly those who’ve experienced trauma and members of the LGBTQ+ community.

I'm a social worker committed to helping people recover from stressful circumstances, find more balance with their emotions, and enjoy healthy relationships with themselves and others. My therapy often focuses on providing a sounding board for my clients, helping clarify patterns in their lives, explore difficult events, and become more comfortable with their emotions and themselves. I enjoy sharing my knowledge so clients can have their own understanding of the way our brains work. I value bringing an awareness of marginalization to my practice and have a history working across difference with people from many racial and ethnic groups. I'm a trans and queer therapist and can provide an affirming environment for other community members. I currently live in Albany, NY with my partner and our cats. I enjoy gardening, painting, and the occasional video game. If you think we might be a good fit, please reach out for a consultation and we can discuss what you're looking for.
