"Look within. All you need, you have. Use it. Behave as best you know; do what you think you should. Don't be afraid of mistakes; you can always correct them; only intentions matter. The shape things take is not within your power; the motives of your actions are." (Nisargadata 1973, p.365)

I offer you an empathetic, direct, and practical presence in your journey towards healing. After becoming a physician (I am a licensed Obstetrician Gynecologist), I discovered another calling of mine is working with people and their emotions. As a therapist who is also a physician, I bring knowledge and wisdom of medicine, the body, and the mind-body connection. With this background, I offer you a unique, experienced, and well-rounded therapist. (For safety reasons, I am currently only offering online therapy sessions.)

Are you feeling anxious, like you can't "just be," always thinking about the next thing, and finding it hard to enjoy the day to day? I work with individuals who are struggling with anxiety, self-doubt, burn-out, co-dependency, or are grappling to find joy and meaning in their life or work. My passion is helping individuals change painful patterns, set healthy boundaries, develop skills to help them cope more confidently with their emotions and life, increase their self-awareness, and reconnect to themselves more deeply. I also work with couples who are feeling disconnected from each other and are ready to reconnect and communicate!

Welcome therapists and psychiatrists! Engaging in psychotherapeutic work is emotionally exhausting and mentally taxing. Because of the intense and confidential nature of the work you do, it can also be extremely isolating and lonely. Being your best self requires continued attention to your psychological, spiritual, and physical well-being. Having a confidential space to process through the demands and challenges associated with being a helping professional is vital to optimize the good work you are doing with your clients.

Often in life there are unexpected events or life transitions that challenge our abilities to cope or understand our sense of self or purpose. When what has been helpful to navigate life is no longer working, symptoms may show up in the form of sadness, depression, anxiety, stress, physical ailments, feelings of isolation, or an overwhelm of emotions that may be difficult to manage alone. I view therapy as a unique opportunity for honest observation and exploration in service of creating a deeper connection with your inherent nature as a way to discover how you can find support from yourself, as well as, feel supported by others.

My goal as a therapist is to serve as a compassionate witness, creating a safe space for clients to explore their whole selves - body, mind, and spirit. Together, we can map the territory of your lived experience and find the road that leads to a place of knowing, confidence, and satisfaction. I welcome the whole you. The places of lightness and the places of darkness. I welcome your multitude of backgrounds and experiences. I welcome the parts that follow the rules, as well as the rebel parts that march to a different beat. Come just as you are - to discover who you can become.

So often we live in the grip of anxiety and depression. Our families pull out our worst, the realities of adulthood drain us, loss of loved ones or our own capacities become existential reality, yet the good news is we can always make changes in ourselves to increase our resilience. The work of psychotherapy is serious business. While humor and levity in the present can help lighten difficult memories, we will dive deep into the past with expert attention to inform movement into a more complete future.

Relationships are challenging no matter what. They are especially difficult if you've had minimal guidance in learning healthy ways of dealing with conflict or asking for what you need. This lack of exposure to healthy ways of relating can show up in friendships, in a romantic relationship or at work through behaviors such as avoidance, accommodation or other ineffective actions. The result is disconnection and dissatisfaction. It is important to understand how you show up in relationship in order to make a healthy change. I am here to help you with this process.

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, 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 have on online co-parenting course that helps parents transition into a healthier relationship. I support couples together, an separate.

The individuals I work with come from many different backgrounds and lifestyles. Depression, anxiety, alcoholism, addiction, relationships challenges and other issues do not discriminate, but affect all races, religions, lifestyles, education levels, and income brackets. My approach to each individual situation varies based on clients' needs and preferences. I may choose from cognitive behavioral, object-relations, humanistic, transcendental, family systems, or other therapeutic approaches, based upon a client's needs. Couples may be involved in traditional marriage or an alternative lifestyle.

My approach as a psychotherapist is to meet my clients where they are, honoring their unique life experiences, offering strategies and responses that address their specific needs. I understand psychotherapy as a collaborative process. I practice listening deeply, with curiosity and respect, to support my clients’ innate capacity for self-awareness, growth, and well-being. Effective therapy requires authentic contact between therapist and client.  I am a fellow traveler, working on my own growth and transformation, while in service to my clients.

My practice is rooted in the strengths-based perspective, and informed by the interconnectedness of all things. I recognize the relationship between mind, body, and spirit (or soul), and the complexity of being an individual influenced by multiple, dynamic systems. Therapy is a collaboration between client and therapist, as we are all practitioners and students in our own rights. We all have within us an innate wisdom and knowing to share and to affect positive change.

Do you feel like you aren't good enough? Are you sensitive to being hurt in social situations? Do you struggle with issues of self esteem or self worth? If these are common themes for you, your teen/child, or in your relationship, then perhaps we might work well together. I center my work around self compassion. I believe that only from a place of self kindness can we feel grounded within ourselves enough to develop a compassionate relationship with others around us. I use mindfulness and somatic body oriented work in order to help us connect deeper with our self, our inner knowing and to be able to cultivate trust with ourselves.
