Do emotions take over and exhaust you? Have people marveled at how resilient you are or mentioned your sensitivity as a liability? Maybe you sometimes wonder if you’re the only one who is seeing the hurt and pain all around.
If any of this speaks to you, I relate and I can help.
I currently have day-time openings for virtual and in-person therapy. My office is located in the West Mt. Airy neighborhood of Philadelphia.
I invite you to learn more about my style (see right column) and pricing options (see below).
If you are interested, you are welcome to reach out to me and we can set up a brief phone call before scheduling.
My practice is body oriented and trauma informed. I integrate various evidence-based interventions to support clients in establishing a sense of deep connection to self, others and sustaining well-being. I love to work with children, adolescents, and young adults who are interested in creative and somatic approaches to therapy.
I see clients who are experiencing a range of mental health challenges. I am especially familiar with anxiety, grief, burn-out, persistent depression, relational stressors, survivors of sexual trauma, and those navigating life as an artist. I align with clients whose identities and values defy society's conventional norms. My practice is trauma-informed, and I am dedicated to an anti-oppression, anti-racist, body positive, LGBTQIA+ affirming and equitable lens.
I am a process-oriented therapist, which means I emphasize the felt experience of therapy over cognitive skill building. I integrate various somatic practices, talk therapy, and expressive arts therapy. See below for more information about the modalities I draw from. The integration of these practices ensure that the client's therapeutic experience is present in mind, body, and spirit.
