​I work towards supporting my clients in developing insights, overcome obstacles, and uncovering the version of themselves they seek to find. I understand that in the face of challenges, this becomes an incredibly daunting task. I offer a non-judgmental and compassionate space for clients to feel heard and understood. I work with individuals, couples, and families dealing with anxiety, OCD, personality disorders, relationship issues, and life transitions. I utilize DBT, CBT and ACT along with Narrative Therapy, and Family Systems approaches, incorporating behavioral techniques as needed.

Most everyone experiences some Problems of Living during the course of his or her life. These can manifest as common psychological symptoms or as difficulties in relationship or work. By attending to the contributions that both past experiences and present circumstances make, I work to liberate effort and energy caught in these problems, making that very energy available for the pursuit of wishes and some measure of joy.

While I enjoy working with all adults, my specific clinical interests include working with couples, co-parenting, entertainment professionals, and new and expecting mothers.
I believe that growth is a balance of tackling our short-term challenges while uncovering their long-term patterns and origins. I consider it a privilege to work alongside my clients and find out what is possible when we make the decision to explore and evolve. My approach is tailored to each individual and their goals, but I center my work around a psychodynamic approach that incorporates mindfulness-based stress reduction, somatic therapy, attachment theory, and family systems.

I work with adults, couples, youth, and families in a deeply supportive and engaged environment to assist in a thorough exploration of the challenges they might be contending with. My work promotes the understanding that the person is not the problem, the problem is the problem. I believe that everyone is inherently resourceful, and am committed to working with people to help them alleviate the oppressive effects of problems, whether they are new challenges or ongoing issues.

Are you an adult child of immigrants who struggles with setting boundaries with your parents, family, friends, and/or partner? Maybe you're used to being the fixer, caregiver, co-parent, and all around problem solver for your family. Does the idea of saying "no" make you feel guilty? Perhaps you've never really put yourself first because the idea of choosing yourself over others is unthinkable. Do you feel a constant battle between your head and your heart? It's hard not to feel stuck when you're unable to move forward on the path you really want for yourself or when you don't even know what you want and need.

We all have ideals-- how we think we should feel, how we feel we should think, how we want others to behave towards us, how we want our life to unfold. When reality doesn’t match our ideals, it can bring confusion, frustration, even despair. We may feel trapped between our ideals and reality, leading us to believe we are spinning in circles. I see the therapeutic process as one that allows for an exploration of these ideals and an opportunity to understand how they play a role in one’s relationship with self and with others. My hope is that, through this process, you will find a deeper clarity of your values, wants, and needs.

Working with couples, I mainly use emotionally focused couples therapy and help them understand their relationships in a new way.
Do you feel alone, disconnected, or misunderstood in your marriage or your other relationships ? These feelings are absolutely normal for almost every person at some time in their lives. Fortunately you can do something about it. Clients come to me because something in their lives is not working as they would wish and they feel stuck.

The relationship we have with ourselves is the root to our well-being and is often impacted by early traumatic experiences that affect the way we move in the world and relate to others. I work with people dealing with attachment related trauma that continues to impact their life. When people experience disruptions in attachment relationships it can make it difficult to live a fulfilling life that is not weighed down by a feeling of emptiness or thoughts of unworthiness. These unresolved traumas tend to show up in our life in the form of depression, anxiety, addictions and somatic issues.

With more than 20 years of experience, I work effectively with clients struggling with issues ranging from depression and anxiety to addiction and relationship problems.
I am happy to see the recent focus on the importance of mental health. After a pandemic, difficult social change, and economic uncertainty, it is normal to feel anxiety about the future. I am down to earth and easy to talk to which helps people work through issues more deeply. Using evidence-based approaches, I draw on cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness, and humanistic psychology to help clients move forward in meaningful ways. I tailor therapy to each individual and include all aspects of a person's life, including family dynamics, cultural factors, job/ financial pressures, coping skills and health/ wellness.
