About

Are you feeling paralyzed by unpredictability, indecision, loneliness, anxiety, rejection, grief, fear, anger, or sadness? Therapy is a powerful way to face the difficulties inherent in being human. Although many of us learn to avoid pain, few of us learn the road to more lasting relief. Together, we will bring clarity to your inner thoughts, feelings and hopes as you actualize a more peaceful and purposeful life. Drawing from my training and experience, we'll devise a unique plan to develop strategies toward achieving your goals.
I studied Counselling Psychology at Columbia University and have worked in France, Brazil and Japan. A former researcher for Fortune 500 healthcare companies, I have a deeply curious, goal-oriented approach to therapy. I'll bring to our work my life experience with career transitions, as well as with parenting, bi-cultural families and issues of identity.
I’m passionate about helping people discover tools for deep and lasting change using clinically-tested and evidence-based therapy. I'm open to a 15-minute no-cost consult so you can decide if we can work together. If you're curious about whether we may be a good fit, contact me and we can go from there.
