Jae completed her Master’s in Social Work with a specialty in sex therapy (MSW/Med) from Widener University. She is passionate about working with LGBQ, Trans, Poly/ENM, GNC/NB, kinky, and sex working populations. She often works with issues related to unique relationship structures, relationship conflicts, sexuality issues, gender exploration, anxiety, obsessions, depression, disturbing thoughts, emotional dysregulation, grief/loss, and bipolar disorder. Jae believes strong, loving relationships are essential to wellbeing and no relationship is more important than the one we have with ourselves. Emphasizing self-compassion, acceptance, and mindfulness, her work strives to achieve better integration of mind and body.
Jae is heavily influenced by the work for Virginia Satir, Allan Shore, Peter Levine, and Audre Lorde. Her work is informed by queer theory, feminist theory, systems theory, body psychotherapy, neurobiology, and narrative psychotherapy. She utilizes intervention strategies from DBT, CBT, Somatic experiencing, ACT, Exposure and Response Prevention, EMDR, and Gestalt therapy.
Jae’s approach is compassionate, empathetic, and affirming. People often choose to work with her due to her specialized training in sex therapy or when they want to work with someone who has personal experience with alternative identities and lifestyles.
