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.

"The feeling of being overwhelmed, lonely, or completely lost can hinder us from living a life full of hope and enjoyment. Life can become more of a burden, ridden with sadness, anxiety, or the lack of pleasure. Sometimes we can even lose our sense of purpose in ourselves, careers, or relationships. The universal feelings of loneliness and pain, excitement and joy, is exactly the reason we as humans need one another to heal. Healing of the mind, body, and spirit can give us the ability to strength our inner being and give us the tools to strength all that surrounds us. So where should we begin? "

Are you expected to be almost perfect and fear you won't measure up and will get ridiculed? Are you afraid of not being "good enough" and coaches losing confidence in you?

"My approach to therapy is informed by mindfulness practices, focused on assisting my clients in "opening up" to the present moment while connecting to their values to strive toward their "Best Self!" I focus on assisting clients in attending to their relational concerns, which allows for them to overcome the emotional distress associated with a history of difficult and painful relationships. I find that it is my duty to establish a safe space where clients feel truly understood. In doing so, I feel honored to be able to "BE" with my clients, as they strive toward growth and empowerment."
