About Me

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist based in the East Bay. I grew up in Southern California and identify as white, queer, trans/gender non-conforming, and Jewish. I graduated with honors from San Francisco State University with a Masters in Counseling in 2019. During my time there, I also did research on LGBQ affirming therapy.


When I'm not working as a therapist, I enjoy hiking, gardening and playing basketball as well as nerding out on psychology theory. I have seen and truly believe in the capacity for growth and healing through a trusting therapeutic relationship, and I am honored to be part of your journey.
