About

My approach

 

I use experiential therapy to help you move through barriers so you can arrive into your body with compassion and connection. Together, we can explore your relationship to self and others, come to understand patterns that create stuckness, and practice new skills so you can embody insights, change, and self-belonging.

My work integrates Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) with psychodynamic, trauma-centered, pleasure-forward, and mindfulness approaches.

My approach is grounded in transformative justice, disability justice, anti-oppressive values, and culturally inclusive practices.

I have specialized experience working with LGBTQ+, kink, and non-monogamous individuals and partners, and with those exploring dynamics related to gender and sexuality.

Above all, I’m dedicated to co-creating an environment of non-judgement and compassion so that your authentic healing can come forth.

“Do at least as much work in the invisible world as you do in the visible.”

My background

I’m a queer white Jewish femme based between Ohlone and Nonotuck territories (East Bay Area, CA and Western MA).

I feel lit up tending to the indespensible relationship between personal, spiritual, relational, and collective transformation.

I entered the field of clinical social work through a trajectory of passions across these intersections– including abolitionist movement building, grassroots money moving, mindfulness training, and studying bodywork for chronic pain.

I’m honored to be doing that which brings me aliveness, authenticity and joy– working closely with individuals and partners to access their healing, pleasure, and transformation.
