My expertise lies in helping people navigate relationship dynamics (with romantic partners, family or friends), anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, professional fulfillment, and existential well-being. You may have been so focused on achieving external goals that you haven't had the time to address your emotions or past events and it feels like you can't avoid them anymore. Together, we would navigate through the experiences that have been difficult to sort through on your own and have left you spiraling or feeling stuck.

I am dedicated to helping young professionals overcome the obstacles standing between them and the lives that they want to live. Many young adults report feeling “stuck” in at least one area of their lives. This can include recurring problematic relationship patterns, difficulty finding motivation at work, or chronic feelings of failure despite their objective success.

Many couples work so hard to resolve conflict on thier own and end up getting stuck over and over. Though each couple has hot topics they can often argue over something as simple as the toilet paper roll. They try to resolve repetitive conflicts on their own and get stuck. There are specific tools and perspectives that are key to having a successful relationship. Learning these tools can deepen a relationship and build a foundation for a potential future family.

I believe that every one of us has the potential of establishing a fuller and more joyous relationship with others and the world. As we work to bring our own unique voice into our lives, we frequently struggle against our childhood conditioning and the culture within which we find ourselves. Therapy as I see and practice it, is a process by which people, reconnect with their deepest yearnings and are helped to become more of whom they were meant to be so they may fulfill their truest destiny.

I grew up in Lake Tahoe, CA, surrounded by the beauty of nature, which gave me a holistic view of health and a love for the outdoors. My journey initially led me to pursue a career in acting, but a transformative experience working with a Nutritionist and CBT Therapist ignited my passion for psychology. I completed my Bachelor's at NYU with a focus on Psychology, Narrative Writing, and Child and Adolescent Mental Health studies. Now, as a Therapist Trainee at the Center for Mental Health Excellence (CFMHE), I am committed to helping individuals, couples, and families navigate life's challenges and foster meaningful connections.

Sometimes, we get stuck in patterns that might have been helpful at some point in our lives but are not so helpful to us now. These patterns show up in the ways we respond in our relationships, in work/school, to challenges, and to ourselves. We’ll approach therapy as collaborators to build up your skills and strengths to get you unstuck. In our work together, we'll gently explore the past, so we can create an action plan for a different future. We'll recontextualize what no longer serves you and make space for your curious, creative self to emerge.

Online Therapists

Is online therapy as effective as in-person?

Numerous studies suggest that online therapy can be as effective as in-person therapy. However, further research is needed to determine if online therapy provides the same benefits across all client populations. Individuals with severe mental illnesses, such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder, or those who may benefit from in-person check-ins, like those with eating disorders, may not experience the same level of benefit from online therapy. Nonetheless, the success of online therapy, much like in-person therapy, often hinges on the quality of the therapeutic relationship between the therapist and the client rather than the specific modality of therapy used.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of therapy conducted online?

One of the main advantages of online therapy is its convenience for both clients and therapists. It also allows clients who require specialized therapy to access a wider range of professionals than they could with only in-person sessions. Additionally, online therapy may be a more affordable option in some cases and often offers the same insurance benefits as in-person therapy. However, online therapy may not be suitable for everyone, especially those who value face-to-face interaction with a therapist. Therapists may find it more challenging to assess clients accurately in an online setting due to reduced nonverbal cues on camera. There is also the increased risk that disruptions caused by external factors, such as technology malfunctions, can hinder the therapy session. For these reasons, many therapists offer a "hybrid" therapeutic approach, alternating between seeing clients in-person and online.

Is online therapy suitable for children and adolescents?

Just like with adults, the accessibility and convenience of online therapy can greatly benefit children and adolescents. In fact, children and adolescents may be more accustomed to navigating online platforms than older adults, making online sessions feel more natural for them. Teens might also be interested in using additional online tools, such as therapist-recommended apps, as an adjunct to online therapy sessions. Apps for developing CBT skills, practicing mindfulness exercises, or tracking thoughts and moods can be helpful for teens receiving therapy. However, it's important to note that not all therapeutic modalities are well-suited to online therapy, especially those used with younger children. For example, play therapy, which helps younger children express their emotions, often requires in-person sessions to be fully effective.

Can I receive prescriptions and medication management with online therapy?

The ability for psychiatrists to prescribe medications through online therapy varies based on the medication and the states where the medical professional and client are located. While many prescribing regulations were relaxed during the COVID-19 pandemic, some states still enforce rules, especially concerning controlled substances, which may mandate an in-person visit before prescribing. Generally, however, medical professionals can prescribe non-controlled substances through online therapy sessions just as they do during in-person sessions.
