A queer, polyamorous therapist
For well over ten years, I have worked in the mental health field. Some of my most satisfying work has happened while working with the queer and polyamory communities in Philadelphia and New Jersey that have accepted me without conditions, and I wish to bring that experience to you. I have worked with people navigating the resurfacing of old relationship wounds in current relationships, people experiencing prejudice based on their sexuality, gender, or ethnicity, difficulties with sexual intimacy with your partner, and everything in between. You deserve to feel accepted, valued, and back in charge of your own life. I will show you my enthusiasm when we celebrate your victories and will provide you with warmth and compassion during your toughest moments; you can always count on me to bring my authentic self when meeting with you. Therapy is a commitment and a relationship and I am excited to share this journey with you.
You may be looking for a therapist that has a specific treatment orientation that you are interested in trying or you know works well for you. I recognize that one treatment modality may not be the best fit for everyone who chooses to work with me. You can expect me to draw on Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Thearpy (CBT), Internal Family Systems (IFS), somatic experiencing, the Gottman Method, or Imago Relationship counseling. I use a variety of treatment modalities so that we can find the right one for you. I'm receptive to all feedback and want to make sure we address your concerns in a way that works for you.
As someone who identifies as cis woman who is queer and practices polyamory, it is important to me that my actions match my words. I have a long history of activism and volunteering with abortion rights, advocating for Black lives, and being involved in my queer and polyamorous communities. Between marches, performing in parades and concerts, and attending fundraisers, you will most likely see me in the community if you live in Philadelphia, PA.
