I see people as having rich, complex human emotions that are not well described with overly simple and often stigmatizing diagnostic labels like depression or generalized anxiety. Each person is entirely unique, with their own history, strengths, and challenges. In therapy, I will work with you to better understand yourself. When we can understand why you might be feeling or thinking or acting in a way that is not best for you, we can work together to change it in a way that is tailored to your needs and your circumstances.

No one comes to therapy because they want their lives to stay exactly the same. I believe that therapy is about transformation. I enjoy working with individuals who are looking to evolve and grow, to understand themselves and their motivations so that they can make lasting changes. Whether you feel motivated to do so now right now or are hoping to find that motivation, therapy can help.

We encounter many transitions in our lives. Transitions often come with intense life events such as moving to a new country, going through a divorce or losing a loved one. They also come at different stages of life like being an adolescent or growing older. We can feel depressed, anxious, frustrated and lost. I believe transitions provide an opportunity to re-examine ourselves and explore life’s meaning. Together we address issues of identity, interpersonal relationships, grief & loss, loneliness, immigration, and aging.

Perhaps you are grappling with blocks in the way to accomplishing what you know you can or just need less anxiety as you do it. Some of us know what to do but not how to get there, others know how to get there but lack motivation, structure, or wisdom for a particular aspect of our lives.

Welcome and congratulations to taking this big step of looking into therapy. Starting therapy is a tremendous gesture of hope and self-love. It can also be scary or daunting to know where to begin. Whatever is bringing you to therapy at this moment - a break up, a loss, the all encompassing changes of welcoming a baby, the gut wrenching challenges of fertility struggles, the anticipation and transitions of pregnancy- will be explored with openness, curiosity and acceptance. We all struggle in life and are not meant to do it alone. Things really do get easier when we share our struggles and are received without shame or judgment.
