I have been practicing individual and family psychotherapy since 2007 and earned my Masters in Social Work with Honors from the Hunter College School of Social Work in New York City. I also worked in the arts for over 15 years before I became a therapist, during which time I earned an MFA in Poetry from Sarah Lawrence College.
My areas of specialization include:
• depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, and stress • relationship and family conflict
• maternal mental health, pregnancy and postpartum issues, infertility
• creativity and the art-making process • LGBTQ+ issues
Before moving to Savannah in 2015, I worked with individuals and families from diverse racial, ethnic, socioeconomic, and spiritual backgrounds, in community mental health clinics, college counseling centers, clinical research programs, and court-based settings. I have received continuing education from the NYU Institute for Psychoanalytic Education and Postpartum Support International, among many others, and have been trained in perinatal mood disorders, cognitive-behavioral therapy, trauma-focused therapy, and motivational interviewing.
I currently live in Savannah with my partner, our two daughters, our dog, and more books than any home can fit comfortably. When I’m not working or spending time with my family, I practice yoga, read, write, and go to the beach as much as possible.
HOW I WORK
My approach is warm, interactive, practical, and empathic and I draw from relational, psychodynamic, feminist, and LGBTQ+-affirming treatment models. I will partner with you in your journey, using sensitivity, empathy, creativity, and humor so you can achieve peace, freedom, and fulfillment – on your own terms. Together we will assess your situation, identify your concerns, and establish a focused plan to meet your needs, building upon your internal wisdom and power.
I know it can be difficult to seek help and make change, but I look forward to listening to you and learning your story.
