I provide insight-oriented psychotherapy in a relatable way that gets to the deeper root of what’s going on. I work with ages 15 and up. Together we’ll get to know your history and background; we’ll make sense of the past and how it aﬀects the present; and we’ll undo maladaptive patterns to develop better coping mechanisms.
AREAS OF EXPERTISE
Loss & Grief
I work with partners in various types of relationships to understand underlying issues within their relationship(s). Together we’ll discuss the history and nature of the relationship; we’ll experience what it’s like to communicate intimately and openly; and we’ll allow dynamics of the relationship to play out to evaluate and understand where they come from and the impact they have.
COMMUNICATION & TRUST
INFIDELITY & REPAIR
POLYAMORY & NON-MONOGAMY
Gender Affirming Assesments
Unfortunately, most health insurances and medical providers still require third party endorsement for gender-aﬃrming procedures. I provide assessments and can write letters for any upcoming medical treatments or legal document changes. These can be one-oﬀ sessions or ongoing as needed.
Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING OUR FREE-15-MIN CONSULT?
This is an opportunity to learn about what’s going on and what you’re looking for. We’ll discuss if I’m the right ﬁt for that. I’m here to answer any questions you have and point you in the right direction.
WHAT’S THERAPY WITH YOU LIKE?
I help people feel seen and heard. I do a lot of listening, and offer interpretations or occasional suggestions. I challenge folks and provide a different vantage point. Sometimes we’ll laugh, there may be tears, and you might even get angry. I’m here to hold all of that and make sense of it with you. We’re going to get to the root of what’s going on so that you can feel like a better version of yourself.
HOW OFTEN WILL WE MEET & HOW LONG WILL I BE IN THERAPY?
We’ll meet weekly for 50 minutes. Some people stay in therapy longer than others. It all depends on what your goals are and what you’d like to get out of it. Healing and doing lasting work takes time and can be a slow, intentional process.

DO YOU TAKE INSURANCE?
Yes, right now I am only in-network with Aetna including Aetna student health. You may have out-of-network benefits. To learn more consult this guide.

In the event that someone’s financial situation decreases or improves a thoughtful negotiation of fees will happen to accommodate our respective needs.
