As a clinical health psychologist, I’ve witnessed the impact of stress, anxiety, and feelings of hopelessness as individuals manage their chronic health conditions. These are common reactions to navigating a life-altering health condition. I work with clients to better manage their mental health and chronic illness together to improve their overall health. I take a collaborative approach to therapy with my clients, and I strive to establish a supportive environment where we can discuss your goals for therapy and address the challenges associated with managing chronic illness .

As someone in recovery and with a chronic illness myself, I've not just helped others.
When was the last time you felt truly heard? Life can feel as though you're stuck in a maze without a map or sense of purpose. You may feel broken, alone, or depressed, but you're not. I've successfully helped clients work through life's challenges, learn effective coping skills, and view the present and future in a realistic, positive way. I've also helped clients with chronic illness maximize their quality of life and reach their goals, such as returning to work or school, or being a better parent or spouse. We'll set up a plan that meets your current needs, then empower you to reach your goals, together.

Over the years, I have effectively addressed a wide variety of problems, including depression, anxiety, addictions, cross-cultural issues, grief, and chronic illness .
There is nothing like being listened to and understood on a deep level, with genuine interest and acceptance. This is what I strive to offer in therapy or analysis, as we explore together your hopes and dreams, your losses and regrets, your longings and fears. Many people come to therapy to free themselves from self-defeating patterns and the legacy of past traumas, so they can be more truly themselves in relation to others and live with greater satisfaction and meaning. My analytic training enables me to work intensively, and I enjoy incorporating experiential techniques like journaling, psychodrama, and art.

I have experience working with trauma, depression, anxiety, chronic illness , phase of life adjustment, and relationship issues.
We all have unique stories. Our pasts form us into who we are today, and oftentimes what once worked for us, no longer does. Therapy can help us to gain the insight to understand our stories, but more importantly, help us to choose new ways of living and engaging with ourselves, others, and the world. In the context of a supportive relationship, we will work together to move towards a life where you can experience more meaning and freedom.
