My mission is to support your journey of healing and personal growth with thoughtful trauma-informed care as we explore avenues of transforming pain and emotional discomfort into empowered discovery and self-compassion. Healing is not a ‘one size fits all’ remedy, but rather an intricate process that is unique to you and your specific, life-shaping experiences. With a Master’s in Social Services degree from Bryn Mawr College, my approach to therapy is inclusive, non-pathologizing and strengths based.

Partnering with you, I will weave together techniques from several modalities to create a safe, expansive space in which you can tap into your inherent wisdom and unpack encounters with trauma and personal challenges at your own pace. I offer gentle guidance to working therapeutically with groups, couples and individuals, specializing in shame, womens’ and LGBTQ+ health, sexual trauma, grief/loss, infidelity, difficulties in relationships, anxiety, and depression.

I am a licensed social worker and certified experiential therapist committed to pursuing ongoing supervision and training. I have also completed an additional certification in the treatment of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders through Postpartum Support International.

“Healing is non-linear and so is our arrival because we continue to arrive over and over again until our bodies and lives feel more like home.”
