INTERPERSONAL TRAUMA AND PTSD
LIFE TRANSITIONS AND ADJUSTMENTS
I believe that our psyches are brilliantly adaptive, and am appreciative and non-judgmental toward how you’ve adjusted to your life so far. Psychotherapy provides a unique, interpersonal space where you can address your situation in new ways in the supportive, skilled company of another. As that designated other, I offer a warm and steady presence, a gentle sense of humor, and a genuine curiosity toward the unfolding of your story. We can start where you are, navigate what's brought you in, and help you illuminate your way forward together.
Training and Experience
I graduated from The University of Vermont in 2011 with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, and then completed Chatham University's Master of Science in Counseling Psychology program in 2014. I have worked in abortion care, domestic violence and sexual assault services, community mental health, crisis services, and in the public school system.
My approach draws from existential and feminist theory, and I am an LGBTQIA+ Affirming provider. I have done specialized training in Internal Family Systems Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Brainspotting, Equine-Assisted Psychotherapy (not currently offered), and in integrating nature into self-exploration.
I started a private practice in Athens, Georgia in 2018 that I transitioned to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in the summer of 2021. I currently offer in-person care at my Regent Square office, and telehealth services to Pennsylvania and Georgia residents.
I am eternally grateful to the clients, mentors, and fellow therapists who continue to teach me, even after our time together. Thank you.

If my approach and areas of focus speak to you, or if you have any questions about my work, please feel free to contact me.
Before scheduling an appointment, I offer a free, 20-minute phone consultation to determine if my approach and your needs align. Finding a good match is so important to getting the most out of therapy. If we decide not to work together, I will offer three referrals for others in the field who have upcoming availability, and who may be a better fit for you.
