I see individuals and couples, and specialize in parenting from birth through adolescence, career transitions, relationship issues, and the alleviation of chronic pain.
Sometimes normal life challenges like changing careers, becoming a parent, or experiencing changes in relationships can contribute to difficult emotions and result in ways of being that make us feel stuck, unproductive or even self-destructive. We can be left feeling stressed, dissatisfied, overwhelmed and insecure. For many, these experiences can also leave us feeling anxious and/or depressed. Exploring how your current challenges relate to your temperament, past experiences and needs can give you the tools to feel better. I can provide support and guidance to help you explore, overcome obstacles and make informed decisions you can feel confident about.

You may have found yourself here because something isn’t working anymore. Whether in your relationship, your job, or negative thoughts that you can’t seem to redirect, it may feel like your typical coping skills or support systems aren’t enough. That’s ok. Take a breath and know that untangling this right now is not something you have to do alone. In my practice, I work with adults navigating interpersonal relationships, career stress, self-esteem and personal growths. I have experience with eating disorders, substance abuse, and trauma, and a special interest in working with the unique struggles of creative and performing artists.

As a former executive with an MBA, I have a particular interest in supporting women through career or relationship transitions, and guiding the balance of personal responsibilities. I see therapy not as a lifelong commitment but a helpful tool to develop insight through a collaborative, empathic, and supportive process. Clients leave energized and able to articulate, clarify, and achieve their goals.

I address a range of concerns including racial and gender discrimination, anxiety, depression, perfectionism, relationship difficulties, imposter syndrome, self-esteem, job stress, trauma, and life and career transitions.
I believe it’s a privilege to be part of a process that helps clients identify strategies that can lead to a more fulfilling life and uncover a greater sense of freedom and agency. I believe that therapy must involve exploring and integrating clients’ cultural context and identities in understanding their lived experiences and addressing their concerns. I have extensive experience working collaboratively with clients of diverse backgrounds to identify goals of treatment and explore meaningful, culturally relevant, psychodynamic and other innovative evidence-based interventions.

I have an open and creative approach that helps in accessing emotions, one that's based in psychodynamic methodology and enables you to gain a greater self-understanding as you confront such issues as: parenting, family, postpartum, childhood development; sexuality & sexual identity; relationships & career; trauma; depression; anxiety; grief & loss.
My practice is centered around the idea that everyone has a story to tell, and that by sharing and thinking about the constitutive elements of these stories they can reach the understanding of themselves they've been looking for. The goal of therapy is to make the unconscious conscious, as Freud said, and by looking at the narrative of your life we can create a framework for understanding how the issues you face have come about, and how you can address them in order to lead a fuller, more mindful and meaningful life.
