About

If you are a LGBTQ couple of color in New York State seeking relationship therapy because you want to learn how to manage conflict in healthier ways, deepen your fondness and admiration for one another, and create shared meaning, I will work with you until you achieve your goals. I only provide relationship therapy to LGBTQ people of color because I am committed to ensuring that these relationships receive the respect, support, and nurturance they deserve.

I am a sex-positive, gender-affirming, anti-racist, anti-oppressive New York State licensed clinical social worker who has worked with people of all ages in various settings since 1991. Given the high percentage of people who have experienced trauma and other distressing events in their lives, I take a trauma-informed approach to my work. I have an integrative style that takes an intersectional, sociopolitical view of the world and incorporates elements of EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), family systems theory, psychodynamic theory, and harm reduction psychotherapy.

Contact me if you would like to work with someone who will work with you as you become aware of and access inner resources, gain new knowledge, and practice new behaviors so that you can have the rich and fulfilling relationship/s you were meant to have. I look forward to hearing from you!
