"I enjoy being a psychotherapist because it provides me the opportunity to help people resolve the issues that are causing them distress. I work with adults, children, and families, and understand that each person is a unique individual with his or her unique life circumstances, history, and social and cultural context. A goal of our work together will be to help you identify and understand the conflicts that may be causing you difficulty, and to help you overcome them. Or perhaps negative thinking patterns cause you to experience sadness, loneliness, hopelessness, fear, or other unwanted emotions."

"I believe that healing occurs in a safe space with a trusted other. People seek out therapy for different reasons and often these reasons are hard to talk about. Maybe you are wrestling with painful memories from your past, maybe you find it difficult to have satisfying relationships, maybe you are experiencing anxiety and depression, or, perhaps, you are having difficulty coping with a loss or connecting with your child. It can be quite helpful to explore these issues and trace back their roots; processing, exploring, and being curious about feelings and beliefs that may come up along the way."

"I am a licensed psychologist offering psychotherapy for adults, adolescents, couples, and infant-parent dyads. I approach my work from a psychodynamic, social/racial justice and queer feminist lens. I believe our childhood experiences and attachment relationships with our caregivers, in combination with our various social identity markers, shape us into the adults we grow up to become. I seek to understand each person's unique life circumstances and experiences so I can best support them in their process of healing and growth. Underlying my work is a deep commitment to interrupting the intergenerational transmission of trauma and oppression."

As we begin to meet on a regular basis, the anxiety, depression or crisis that propelled them into my office starts to calm. Broader questions like “Why do I keep waiting to live my life in the way I always imagined it to be?” or “Why have my personal or professional accomplishments not provided the fulfillment I hoped for?” then begin to emerge."
