Negative experiences are difficult to let go. I know this from the lives I’ve been privileged to be a part of through my work, and my own personal occurrences. They can bother us now, and worry us. They can hold us back in the future. This is not something we have to learn to be okay with and accept. Reaching out for support can be difficult and I want you to know that your efforts are not overlooked. It demonstrates your strengths. I am honored that you are reaching out to me so that you don't have to experience what you're going through alone.

Part of our work together will center around separating who you think you "should" be from who you are. We will collaborate to cultivate an integrated acceptance of self, promoting a rich landscape for change to occur. Our society prioritizes individualism and fleeting connection over deeply intimate relationships. Together we will consider ways to cultivate more meaningful connections that inspire vulnerability and intimacy and build greater awareness around fears and conflicts hindering your ability to do so. We will clearly identify your needs and further develop the skills needed to communicate them to others.

Walking down the street, your eyes move like rapid fire. Your brain gets flooded with comparisons leading you down a rabbit hole of scrutiny and self-doubt - “She looks so beautiful. Why don't I look like that?” “He seems so together. Should I change my job and do what he’s doing?” “That girl is so fit. I have to exercise so I can lose weight to be like her.” “That couple just said that they spend every day together. Is it bad that I only see my partner twice a week?” What could be an enjoyable opportunity to people watch becomes your worst nightmare after you decide that everyone else has it right and you’re always falling behind.

Healing is always possible when you can slow down and listen closely to yourself. Conventional medicine and psychiatry can view symptoms as destiny, when actually your pain is an invitation to turn towards your deeper experience. I use a mind-body (somatic experiencing, gestalt) approach with a relational lens to help you find greater ease in reclaiming your liveliness from parts of you that were neglected or wounded. If you feel stuck after years of talk therapy and/ or medication, I can help. I see children, adolescents, adults /families, online and in person. I work bi-coastally in Manhattan and California.
