“I took a deep breath and listened to the old brag of my heart. I am, I am, I am.” Sylvia Plath

I am providing both telehealth and in-person services.

Even the most painful emotions have wisdom to them. Instead of seeing your mental distress as just a disease, I view it as the brain telling us that things in your life need attention. This might relate to your body, to your relationships in life, to old thought patterns, to what you do with your days, to how society treats you. There are many roads that lead to suffering. I hope to work with you to identify the circumstances that make your situation unique, so we can better understand how to improve your well-being. Then, we can work together to slowly but surely make the necessary changes towards a life filled with richness and meaning. My work, first and foremost, is about building and savoring a life that you care about.

When a treatment for any part of the body fails, people blame the treatment; except for the mind, then the world blames the person. My most meaningful clinical work has been with people whose previous treatments for depression have failed them. People have come to me after trying medications, intensive psychiatric interventions, psychotherapies of all different sorts, yet continue to suffer. Worse yet, a lot of the time, they place the blame onto themselves. Their families and even mental health professionals might do so too. The responsibility actually belongs to our mental health system, letting down people who only want to get better. If you are having this experience yourself, know that there is hope for a better future, and it would be my honor to walk alongside you on your journey.

As a Social Worker, I believe that mental health problems can be a product of an oppressive society; for this reason, I value anti-racism, queer and trans liberation, climate justice, compassionate immigration policy, and a strong social safety net. Alongside my therapy training in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, I have training and first-hand experience in Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), Spravato, and Ketamine. While I am not a prescriber myself, I can collaborate with your medical professionals and help you navigate the psychiatric world. I also respect your decision to decline psychiatric treatment if you choose. I deeply believe in the healing potential of psychedelics in safe and structured contexts, and I am in the process of becoming certified in Psychedelic-Assisted Therapy from the Integrative Psychiatry Institute. In addition, I am also interested in providing emotional support and harm reduction to people who have used psychedelics in the past or are considering psychedelic use in the future. Please note that I do not facilitate access to psychedelic substances or experiences in any way.
