Whether you are new to therapy or returning, seeking support with a particular concern or unsure where to start—I welcome you. In "therapy-speak," I work from a psychodynamic and relational foundation. My goal is to help you get to the root of your concerns and to explore patterns and narratives that might be contributing to dissatisfaction in your life or your relationships. It also means that I consider the therapeutic relationship to be important in its own right. However, I also have specific training in the treatment of trauma and am adept at addressing anxiety and serious mental illnesses that require a balance of deeper, long-term work and skills-building.
I received my master's degree in social work from the Bryn Mawr Graduate School of Social Work and Social Research. My style in session tends to be collaborative, warm, and candid. It is incredibly important to me to create an environment that is safe and affirming and to practice with a social-justice lens.
My clients will sometimes say that they question whether they deserve to be in therapy when there are so many people who suffer. It is my belief that everyone is deserving of the space to explore themselves and to seek relief and insight. I would be honored to do that work with you.
