LGBTQ+ Affirmative Therapy

LGBTQ+ Affirmative Therapy in Ridgewood, NJ. (Bergen County, NJ)
"I want support from someone who understands the LGBTQ+ perspective."

As a member of the LGBTQ+ community myself, I understand the importance of finding a provider who is sensitive to the LGBTQ+ lived experience and point of view. I also understand wanting a provider who does not make assumptions and define your entire lived experience based on your sexual orientation or gender identity alone. As a human being, sexual orientation and gender identity are just two intersections of who we are. Many other facets of our identity including, but not limited to, race, religion, family, and generational history also have an influence on our lived experience and current concerns. My goal is to provide a safe, non-judgmental space where you feel free to be your authentic self.


I take a holistic approach to treatment, incorporating concepts from relational neuroscience, internal family systems, acceptance and commitment therapy, and cognitive behavioral therapy. Treatment is tailored to each individual or couple, incorporating evidence-based interventions that have been proven effective.


I provide support for the following:

Generalized Anxiety/Stress

Dating/Relationship Anxiety

Questioning Sexuality or Gender Identity 

Stress Related to the LGBTQ+ Dating Field

Gender Dysphoria

Low Self-Esteem
