About me

Therapy is important for everyone, even when we think we have it all together. Therapy is essential when we find ourselves losing our joy, hitting our breaking points, and struggling with the day to day.

I look forward to meeting and connecting with you!

I believe therapy offers clients an opportunity to have a consistent space to prioritize your mental health. My experience as a fat, Jewish, white queer woman informs how I interact with the world. My training and experience in social work provides a widened lens to view mental health distress as part of systems of oppression, shame, and rage.

I created my practice, mk therapy, in order to provide a space that believes in affirming and celebrating queer and trans identities. I specialize in working with fat identified folks who are in recovery and healing from fatphobic familial and cultural structures. I have additional interests in working with people coming into queer and trans identities later in life, intergenerational and ancestral trauma, as well as religious and spiritual trauma.

Our unique internal worlds also impact our mental health and the intuitive ways in which we navigate trauma and life challenges. It is my belief in embracing the complexity of our individual and collective identities that informs my style of therapy.
