I'm an integrative psychotherapist working with individuals and couples. My approach is engaged and caring, providing a safe and supportive environment, where you can reflect and develop new ways of handling challenges you are facing. The focus of my practice is twofold: relationship issues and life transitions (e.g. themes like change in relationship, career changes, relocation, pregnancy, child birth and parenting, facing illness, trauma and loss as well as seeking more meaning and fulfillment in life). I have a particular expertise in working with people who immigrated to the US or have diverse cultural backgrounds.

Asking for help can often feel like a vulnerable and risky endeavor. At the foundation of my work, I believe that coming in for therapy is brave and everyone should feel heard. My hope is that our work together will make vulnerability a little less scary. As such, my approach is flexible and integrative aiming to help develop insight and understanding while also initiating change. In collaboration with you, I use different strategies to help further develop your sense of choice and empowerment, build confidence in your intuition, as well as deepen your empathy for self and others.

Therapeutic relationships can truly be life changing and transformational. The issues that are leading you to think about therapy can be worked on, leading to increased satisfaction and joy with yourself, improved relationships with others, and enhanced functioning in pursuit of the life you want. I work collaboratively with you to help you develop more flexible responses to resolve conflict. Listening to your unique story with deep curiosity is crucial to our work, but I'm also pro-active and engaged in sharing my thoughts and observations. Kindness and compassion are vital, but so too are active help and feedback.

I specialize in treating adults in their 20's and 30's. Most of my clients have the things that they believe constitute a good life (secure jobs, close friend groups, active social lives, etc) yet they continue to feel anxious, lost, sad, unfulfilled, burned out, and perplexed by what their purpose on this earth really is. Additionally, many of them experience significant distress caused by an endless drive towards achievement rather than fulfillment and a self-defeating pattern of comparing themselves to others.

I believe Psychotherapy can be a “point in the right direction” to bring change, healing, and a new sense of hope into your life. This is a place you can talk about anything, where you can explore fears, frustrations, hopes and all the parts of yourself. You don't have to be in crisis for therapy, often it's good to have someone to talk through things. I am a deep and attentive listener, as well as interactive. One of my goals is to give you my "toolbox" so you can manage life outside the office. I am also sex positive, open to people of all ethnicities, race and gender.

Many of my clients are successful professionals who are beginning to question whether they are on the right path. Some are searching for a more creative or spiritual way of life. Others crave relationships of greater substance. Still others seek clarity of purpose. Most feel limited by notions of what they have to be or do for the sake of others. You may have something in common with these people.

We believe people come to therapy when the things that usually help them get through their challenges are no longer working for them. Do you find yourself living too much in the past, or too much in the future? Maybe you want to be a better partner, feel optimistic about the future again, and feel like the person you have always imagined yourself to be.

Struggling with anxiety about a stressful world and uncertain future? There’s a voice in your head that is desperate to do it all perfectly, to stay four steps ahead, not make any mistakes. You have a persistent feeling of "not good enough" that follows you from work to relationships to family. Your mind races with thoughts about what you could have done better or how you disappointed someone. You feel paralyzed, self-critical, and overwhelmed. Yes, it's partly due to the state of the world right now. But to be honest, you've felt this way a long time, way before COVID.

Beginning psychotherapy can be both an exciting and sometimes, challenging process. Each person is the "expert" on their own experience, but at times we need collaborative support in order to sort through our emotional lives. We may feel stuck in our current ways of coping and desire to make a change, or we may have been urged by loved ones to seek help. Therapy allows us to open up our minds in an environment of safety, leaving us free to explore new ways of thinking and being in the world.

In 40 years of clinical practice I have come to think of what I do as a unique form of education. Psychotherapists "teach" not so much by telling people what to do (although good advice is often useful), but by helping clients to find the strength within themselves, and the needed support from those around them, to address the difficulties in their current lives in new and more effective ways. A therapeutic environment enables clients to develop a new way of understanding their life experiences that promotes higher self-esteem, increased capacity for intimacy, and greater effectiveness in work.
