About

Accepting new clients. Despite your successes, you feel unhappy, worried, overwhelmed, lonely and unfulfilled in your life. You may be seeking more satisfying relationships with family, friends and intimate partners. Perhaps your life is being touched by major changes and this time, you aren’t able to hold all the pieces by yourself. Or perhaps you need support with addressing the complexities and emotional strain associated with being a child of immigrant parents or navigating the world as a person of color. You may have found short-term strategies helpful in the past but are looking for more long term change and satisfaction.
Psychodynamic therapy can offer you a weekly space that is dedicated to going beyond the surface to address your worries, fears and unhappiness, gain insights about your wants, needs and desires, discover how previous experiences have shaped who you are, confront repetitive patterns and heal old wounds so you can begin living the kind of life you envision.
You are ready for deep change and want to take the next step to transform the patterns that have become obstacles in your life. I offer empathy, understanding, and compassion while aiding you in a process of introspection and self discovery. Please reach out to see how I can help you.
