How I Can Help You

Let's co-create both a safe and brave enough space to unpack what's been boxed up for all this time.

 

Our sessions can include:

  • exploring cultural identity, ethical non-monogamy, kink and BDSM, asexuality, online dating, performance anxiety, relationships with mind-altering substances

  • managing racial anxiety, holistic well-being, life transitions, low self-esteem, NYC-living, pandemic-related stress

  • processing intersectional trauma, family dysfunction, attachment issues, privilege & prejudice

  • moving through guilt and shame, loneliness, fear of failure or inadequacy

 

​Having worked in therapeutic settings ranging from adoption to psychoanalytic institutes, my clinical lens is unique in that you can feel comfortable bringing all of you to session without having to worry about compartmentalizing aspects of who you are.

 

VNC Therapy New York is a private psychotherapy practice that affirms and empowers historically disenfranchised communities; which places emphasis on fostering healing spaces for BIPOC, Transgender, Gender non confirming, and all LGBTQIA+ identities.

 

The therapist search can be overwhelming, so my process is streamlined to help make our connection easier. Please explore my website to learn more about me and find links to schedule a complimentary phone consultation. Before our consult, please read the Frequently Asked Questions page, so we can focus our time on what you'd like to explore in therapy.

Services & Fees

I work with adults in individual and couples' therapy, consult on the intersectionality of race and gender, and supervise graduates working towards full licensure. 

As an private practice therapist, I understand how helpful insurance can be with subsidizing investment in therapy, so please let me know if you'd like to use Out-of-Network Benefits (OON). If you have Healthfirst, Metroplus, or other managed care plans, please explore my resources page for in-network mental health providers offering intakes in New York.

I absolutely love what I do and wake up each day excited to practice in such a mutually collaborative healing space. My goal is for us to be able to have honest, comfortable conversations about your financial wellness and find a sustainable solution that feels good for everyone.

Exploring the FAQ page and verifying Out-of-Network Benefits benefits will maximize our time on the consultation, so we'll be able to focus on your unique experience.

Individual Therapy

You're highly motivated, but feel stuck. You're resilient, but feel emotionally drained. You're insightful and seem put together, but feel like anxiety, negative behavior patterns, or some intangible thing is preventing you from being your best self. I will help you confront those parts of yourself that no longer serve you, both supporting and challenging you as you progress on this therapeutic journey.

Sessions typically range from $225 - $300 per therapeutic hour.*

*My sliding scale is currently at capacity, but you're welcome to join the wait list. Meanwhile, please explore my resources page for additional options.

Couples Therapy

Are you exploring themes of gender, sexuality, non-monogamy, race, culture, and identity within the context of your partnership and don't know where to start? In addition to developing communication, boundaries, and strengthening your relationship, we'll create space to explore how your individual needs can become more aligned so you can share a fulfilling life together. 

Sessions typically range from $300 - $400 per therapeutic hour.*

*Unfortunately, I'm no longer accepting insurance for couples therapy. If cost is prohibitive, please explore my resources page for sliding scale options.

Clinical Consultations

It's not enough to be culturally competent anymore, and our clients deserve therapists equipped to talk about race and sex even if your focus is in Relationships with Food. If you're looking for guidance on how to develop a holistic practice that embraces diversity or would like a case consult, I can help you work through implicit bias and countertransference.

 

Consults range from $200 - $300 per 60 minute appointment depending on student status.*

*Open to therapists / limited permit-holders

Discussions & Workgroups

Enhance your organization's expertise through intensive discussion groups or interactive workshops tailored to each setting. From large nonprofit to boutique practice, my skill is facilitating productive conversations about race and culture that will challenge, inform, and improve your organization's workplace culture in a professional way.

Services start at $300 per hour
