About me

I’m continuously humbled by the resilience, perseverance, and creativity that we all have to not only survive, but to thrive. As a therapist I feel incredibly fortunate to witness the most intimate parts of people’s lives. I find the aspects of ourselves that we are most likely to hide, are often the most beautiful.

As a seeker, I have explored myself deeply through yoga, meditation, bodywork, psychotherapy, and non-ordinary states of consciousness. I am dedicated to my own continued exploration and growth, personally and professionally, which I view as an unending process.

As a culturally Jewish-American, CIS-gendered, hetero-sexual woman, I am keenly aware of intersectionality; privilage and marginalization. In our work, I invite open dialogue about issues related to race, gender, sexuality, and social status as these are so often considered taboo. While I may or may not have similar lived-experiences to you around these aspects of identity, I will hold curiosity for us to both deepen into a greater understanding of them.
