About

I believe that therapy can be a catalyst not only for insight, but also for transformation. Life can be challenging, and at times, despite our best efforts we can feel stuck or lost. I strive to provide a calm and compassionate space where you can get in touch with what matters most to you, and use that as a guide to making changes in your life. I offer specific strategies and tools to help you change your relationship to difficult thoughts and feelings, and work collaboratively with you to take steps toward a life that is full of vitality and personal fulfillment. My style is warm and genuine, interactive, and culturally-sensitive.
I specialize in evidence-based and mindfulness approaches. As a licensed psychologist, I have extensive experience treating stress, anxiety, mood disorders, low self-esteem, depression, and addiction. I often work with individuals on relationship concerns, life transitions, and issues related to gender identity. I also conduct psychological testing.
My colleague and I started our practice together and decided to call it HeartWork Psychology because we believe our work should always come from the heart. Our mission is to promote well-being through compassionate and evidence-based therapy and assessment. I offer a complimentary phone consultation to see if my services are a good fit for your needs.
