CJ is an eclectic systemic therapist and pulls from many therapy models to create a client-centered, tailored experience that values emotional honesty, self-care, mindfulness, and humor. She provides individual, relationship, and sex therapy and welcomes the presence of partners and family members as an addition to the therapeutic process. CJ works through a culturally-sensitive lens and defers to her clients as the experts on their own experiences. She seeks to create an environment that is affirming, inclusive, and celebratory of queer and gender-diverse folx, as well as the polyam/CNM and kink communities. With a long history in the performing arts, CJ has a special affinity for those in creative professions. She looks forward to co-creating your therapeutic experience with you, no matter where you meet along the journey.
CJ’s special clinical interests include, but are not limited to: consensual/ethical non-monogamy, kink, exploring gender, improving communication & building intimacy, infidelity, pregnancy & postpartum, musicians/actors/artists, adult children of alcoholics, attachment, trauma recovery
CJ is a proud member of AAMFT & AASECT and a graduate of Thomas Jefferson University’s Couple & Family Therapy program with departmental Honors and a specialization in Sex Therapy. She works out of the Philadelphia Institute for Individual, Relational, and Sex Therapy (PhIIRST) in Center City Philadelphia. Virtual and in-person sessions are available as of June 2021.
