I am a graduate of the University of Michigan School of Social Work. I taught high school for several years before pursuing interpersonal therapy, and I currently teach Psychology and Sociology to undergraduate students at UM in Ann Arbor. I have a passion for social justice and an appreciation for the diversity of minds, bodies, identities, and cultures. I seek to encourage and celebrate the differences between humans, while working to help make spaces more inclusive instead of trying to fit people into archaic molds and expectations. I have over a decade of experience with teens and young adults, and I recognize the difficulty that each person has in creating their future during these complex and trying times. I use a holistic approach to therapy to help me understand each individual and how they interact with the world they live in so that I can better support them through countless transitions and stressful situations. I believe that every human is good-natured, yet many suffer from oppressive systems, structures, and mindsets that limit their ability to show up as their best every day. My work is focused on trauma-informed care, and I collaborate with each client to identify the best combination of strategies and treatment options for them.
I am a supporter of the Black Lives Matter movement, Women’s Right to Choice, and Access to Gender-Affirming Care for Trans and Nonbinary folks, as well as continued progress and recognition for a wide range of Sexual and Gender Orientations.
I provide mainly individual therapy, but I am open to couples therapy by request.
