About This Project


My role in our therapeutic partnership is to help you to realize and amplify the strengths you already possess, provide coping skills when times are tough, and take a closer look at the factors getting in the way of the life you want to lead.

I utilize a mixture of Cognitive Based Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and Mindfulness-based practices all through an intersectional lens to assist each individual on their unique journey. I aim to create a safer, braver space for exploring with each client while we challenge both the external, structural factors and internal, individual factors impacting their life. For all clients, my aim is to work with you to identify and work through the challenges you may be experiencing with anxiety, depression, self-esteem, stress, and more.

As an individual who identifies as nonbinary, I am also here to relate with and support clients who are exploring, re-examining, or reaffirming their experiences with gender identity and sexual orientation. When I am not working, you can find me making my own music (I play guitar, drums, and dabble in a few other instruments), reading three or four books at once, playing Dungeons & Dragons with friends, and engaging with community/political work throughout the NYC area.
