I am a skilled psychologist seasoned in working with adults, couples and families (from different intercultural, interfaith, interracial backgrounds). I have interviewed on NPR + written for NYT.

"You have been waiting for the right time to start therapy and things have progressed to a point where something has to change. There is a constant inner critic that creates feelings of insecurity. You ruminate over things happening at home, work, or with the people you most care about and end up beating yourself up. You find yourself in situations or making decisions you later regret and this is not where you thought you would be in your life. Things are not what you expected. These are struggles I often hear from clients I work with. Therapy can help you take control of your life and alleviate emotional pain. "

"I help people who feel stuck and unhappy. Maybe you feel depressed or anxious; maybe you are lonely; maybe you feel uncertain about relationships or work. Perhaps your problems are new; perhaps you have been struggling for years. I am here to listen and help. I know it can be difficult to talk. I know it takes courage to share painful feelings, especially when you might be weighed down with shame, fear, guilt, sadness or anger. Together, we will carefully make sense of your current struggles as well as the deeper, underlying patterns that keep you unfulfilled and trapped."

"It can be extremely difficult to find a sense of direction and peace within this fast-paced, highly competitive society we live in. Feelings of stress, anxiety and depression are completely normal, but they can multiply when we're not mindful and compassionate toward ourselves. By being open to support and building stronger self-awareness and habits, it is possible to live a more fulfilling life, driven by your values, rather than by your emotions. My intention as a therapist is to help you reach this potential. "

Sometimes you feel something is not quite right, but you can't put your finger on it. Other times, you know exactly what it is. Either way, telling your story can help figure things out by identifying your patterns of thought, behavior and emotions. Are any of them getting in the way?
