  • I am a queer, genderfluid, polyamorous, white, Jewish intersectional feminist who is dedicated to the pursuit of a more just world by acting in solidarity with struggles against white supremacy, capitalism, heteropatriarchy, and ableism. My pronouns are she/her/hers and they/them/theirs.

    I’m fulfilling a lifelong passion for psychology that deepened through my own therapeutic work as a client who has experienced transformative change. I bring my own life experience to this work following a career in nonprofit communications, fundraising, and freelance writing. I'm thrilled to bridge my commitment to social justice on a broad scale to collaborative interpersonal and emotive work one-on-one, or two-(or more)-on-one with individuals, partners, and families.

    Outside of therapeutic work, I enjoy organizing, getting outdoors with my dog, plant care, gardening, rollerskating, and writing.
