I have been practicing individual and family psychotherapy since 2007 and earned my Masters in Social Work with Honors from the Hunter College School of Social Work in New York. I also worked in the arts for over 15 years before I became a therapist, and earned an MFA in Poetry from Sarah Lawrence College.

 

Before moving to Savannah in 2015, I worked in New York City with clients from diverse racial, ethnic, socioeconomic, and spiritual backgrounds – in community mental health clinics, college counseling centers, clinical research programs, and court-based settings.

 

I have received postgraduate training from the NYU Institute for Psychoanalytic Education, and have trained in perinatal mental health, cognitive-behavioral therapy, trauma-informed therapy, and motivational interviewing. In 2020, I also completed a yoga teacher training program (200-hour).

My pronouns are she/her/hers.

I currently serve on the Board of Postpartum Support International (PSI) Georgia Chapter and also volunteer as a PSI State Coordinator for the Savannah area.

 

I am a certified Perinatal Mental Health (PMH-C) provider through PSI and in 2019, I helped to form the Maternal Mental Health Collective of Savannah.

I live in Savannah with my partner, our two daughters, our dog, and more books than any home can fit comfortably. When I'm not working or with my kids, I practice yoga, read, write, and go to the beach as much as possible.

My areas of specialization are: 

Grief

Stress

Trauma

Anxiety

Depression

LGBTQ+ issues

Infertility & loss

Pregnancy/postpartum issues 

Relationship and family conflict

Creativity and the art-making process

How I work

My approach is warm, interactive, practical, and empathic, and I draw from psychodynamic, feminist,

trauma-informed, anti-racist, and LGBTQ+-affirming treatment models. I believe in the healing power of the therapeutic relationship and am honored to be part of your journey toward healing and vitality.

I use sensitivity, creativity, and humor to help you achieve peace, freedom, and fulfillment – on your own terms. Together we will assess your situation, identify your concerns, and establish a plan to meet your needs, building upon your internal wisdom and power.

I know it can be difficult to seek help and make change.
I look forward to hearing you and learning your story.
