My Approach to Helping

I believe that change takes place within the framework of strong, healthy relationships. I strive to be a partner in healing, building a bond of trust and connection in which clients feel safe unpacking difficult emotions. I also use cognitive-behavioral tools to help clients problem behaviors and life patterns. I have a strong grounding in feminism and social justice advocacy, and provide a safe space for all human experience and identity.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I provide depth-oriented trauma therapy to children, adolescents and adults, using both relational interventions and a knowledge of the effects of trauma on the brain. I also have a focus on the difficult and painful issues that come with infertility and pregnancy loss. In addition to these specialties, I work with issues around relationships, family dynamics, children's and adolescents' behavioral issues, parenting tools, self esteem, body image, anxiety, depression, and many other areas of mental health.

Issues I Treat


  • Infertility External link

    I have had personal experience with infertility and pregnancy loss that informs my work. There are unique struggles around infertility and pregnancy loss, and it's often difficult to feel understood by someone who hasn't been through it.

  • Women's Issues External link

    My educational background is in feminist psychoanalysis, and I approach women's issues - body image, reproductive issues, sex and relationships, parenting, trauma, etc - from a strong feminist perspective.

  • Relationship / Marriage Issues External link

    I offer couples counseling to partners of all orientations and genders. Relationships are hard, and sometimes we need someone to help us hear and be heard. I establish firm ground rules and maintain them, making sure that everyone feels safe being vulnerable.

  • PTSD External link

    I have many years of experience helping children, adolescents and adults deal with the aftermath of trauma using mindfulness, narrative therapies and strong interpersonal support.
