"First of all, I want to congratulate you on making the decision to start therapy. Unlike what some people believe, that going to therapy implies that you are “weak”, the exact opposite is true. Making the decision to actively look at your life and face and overcome the challenges you are facing takes courage and strength! I specialize in working with high-functioning, young adults/adults, and it is a true pleasure to see more and more people who embrace the idea that therapy is a healthy, proactive way to learn to listen to their heart and take steps to make changes and create lives that they will truly enjoy."

"In an often outwardly focused world, I see therapy as a practice of internal reflection. Sometimes we aren't totally clear on the reason we are starting therapy, but we know we don't feel right or feel it's time to face something more directly. I often work with people experiencing fear, anxiety, dread, loneliness, self-criticism, or people who are feeling lost or stuck. Together we will explore what your suffering/unease is pointing to, and discover what may be trying to surface in your life in order to bring more wholeness and well-being. "

"Many of us who look like we’re doing fine on the outside secretly struggle with a deep, internal fear that we are not “enough.” Many of us also know the pain of feeling marginalized in various ways. Perhaps we are exhausted managing these difficult thoughts and feelings each day. We are further worn down when others don’t recognize the harm that structural oppression causes us. While we are looking for better ways to navigate the world, we also just long to be understood and supported for the nuanced individuals we are. Can you relate? If so, a trusting relationship with a social justice-minded therapist could be meaningful to you."

"Clinical psychotherapy is a process of deepening self awareness and supporting people to live more authentically. In my practice I emphasize working with children and adolescents. One of the most essential developmental tasks for young people is to discover who they are. Therapy is profoundly well fit for this process. Developing an understanding of one's emotional landscape at a young age allows for greater maturity and authentic decision making. Therapy helps young people unravel complex family dynamics, thus increasing genuine individuality. The outcome is the ability to be in charge of ourselves with confidence, emotional intelligence, and deep satisfaction."
