I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW). I offer mental health support services (sometimes called therapy, psychotherapy, or counseling) in a holistic framework. See below for more information about my therapeutic approach and who I work with.
As of October 2019, I am currently accepting new clients. However, all my reduced fee slots are currently filled. If you are interested in pursuing therapy or other holistic wellness and support offerings with me, please complete this webform. I will follow up as soon as possible.
In addition, you can access a list of other referral sources here.
I can see clients who communicate in Spanish and/or English. I have clinical competence in supporting folks from LGBTQQIA+ communities, as well as people who are survivors of trauma, people who struggle with emotional regulation, and people who need support with recovery from addictive and self-destructive behaviors, among other competence areas.
My life and work experiences also make me uniquely positioned to provide culturally competent support to individuals who work in social justice and social movement spaces, as I understand first-hand many of the dynamics which are present in revolutionary and radical spaces. Further, my work is informed by an anti-racist, anti-oppression, and anti-patriarchal ethos.
It may take you time to find a therapist who is a good fit for you, and even if you discover that working with me is not the right choice for you, I will do my best to help connect you with the appropriate resources.
*Due to limitations that BCBS places on who they will allow in their networks, it is unlikely I will be included as an in-network provider in every BCBS plan. Based on my research, I believe I will be allowed into Blue Options, Blue Advantage, Blue Select and State Health Plans. At this time, I do not anticipate being allowed into the Blue Value (soon to be Blue Home) network, which is most ACA plans. My plan is to engage in some advocacy with BCBS to try and get into this network, since so many folks have insurance through the ACA. I know insurance can be confusing and frustrating, and I commit to be as transparent as possible about these realities while working with you.
