Connecting with your therapist is difficult; I've had a few therapists myself who I did not relate to. I've struggled with my mental health throughout my lifetime and having some bad therapists was a big motivator in pursuing this career. I think that the role of therapists as agents for social change is not given enough attention and I believe in acknowledging and addressing the systemic issues impacting mental health. I am an advocate for the queer community and challenge myself to be a better ally to POC and marginalized communities. I am a huge animal lover and have taken extensive training in animal-assisted therapy to incorporate the human-animal bond in my work.

I also identify as an artist and enjoy working with other creatives through their process.

I am in-network with BlueCross BlueShield, Aetna, United Healthcare, Oscar, and Oxford.
