I'm a licensed clinical psychologist and psychoanalyst. Occasionally, we notice patterns of thinking, behaving, and experiencing others & ourselves, which can feel very familiar and frustrating. Or we can be hit by sudden life circumstances like loss, transition, identity shifts, or trauma that leave us feeling overwhelmed & scared, where existing strengths and coping skills are outstripped. Through a dynamic and collaborative process, I help patients understand & transform their old ways of being to feel more connected, renewed, and, ultimately, to better flourish in their relationships, work, and within themselves.

We all have stories we have been carrying with us based on our lived experience. I aim to help my clients dig deeper into these personal narratives, to understand how our past may be affecting our present and keeping us from the future we want. I have specialized training and experience in working with trauma and providing treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, anxiety, military adjustment, occupational stress, and other major life changes. Racial trauma and issues related to cultural identity, such as those specific to 1st and 2nd generation immigrants, are some of the particular topics I would help us explore.

Every one of us, at some point in our lives, encounters difficulty and hardship. At times, the challenges we find ourselves facing seem insurmountable. Perhaps you had a difficult and painful childhood that interferes with your ability to find happiness and comfort. Maybe your current or past relationships have been draining and confusing—full of conflict and hurt. Have you recently experienced something life-altering or traumatic? Or, are you struggling with unwelcome feelings and behaviors that impact your health, relationships, or career? Whatever obstacles you’re facing, therapy can be an invaluable and freeing experience.

Life can be quite challenging. Has life turned out differently than you hoped? Do you feel unsure about how to move forward or what to do with your emotions? We tend to either minimize our emotions or let them run wild, and either way, it can lead us to self-sabotaging behaviors that keep us from the life and relationships we desire. Feelings can steer us to flourishing places if we have the skills to gain insight into what they are telling us and respond to them effectively. I approach clients with compassion, empathy, and kindness to work collaboratively to foster connection with yourself and others.
