Waitlist for new clients
Ready for less surviving and more flourishing? Less chaos and more ease? You feel like a hot mess, pouring so much energy into getting by. You want success at school or work, better connections with your partner, friends, and family, and a satisfying sex life. You wish you could have more fun. But past failures, disappointments, heartbreak, or regrets keep haunting you. It feels like the pandemic reinforced these mental and emotional shackles.

Life can be painful and draining. Some days it feels like we're stuck or moving further away from our goals. Even during the most difficult times, we have the opportunity to learn and grow, if we feel supported. If you are struggling, feeling depressed, anxious, lonely, or just curious to learn more about yourself, I can help. I believe that all of us has the potential to thrive and feel fulfilled. Our relationship will be the main instrument in promoting growth and healing and our first step will be to build trust and understanding.

I assess and treat adults experiencing emotional difficulties associated with anxiety, depression, trauma, adjustment to major life events, and preparing for and healing from medical procedures including bariatric and cosmetic surgeries. Mood symptoms can have a negative impact on relationships, self-esteem, one’s ability to participate in meaningful activities, and management of health behaviors related to sleep, physical activity, and pain.

My goal as a therapist is to help clients create a safe space where they can work on aspects of their life which they may be unhappy with. I have experience working with individuals with a wide-range of experiences from domestic abuse to bullying, and helping clients find their voice throughout those struggles, as well as the treatment of depression, anxiety, self-harm, and OCD. I take clients of all ages but I specialize in working with young adults and adolescents with eating disorders and trauma.

I am a psychologist who provides virtual therapy for teens and adults. I strive to build a warm and collaborative relationship through which positive change can occur. In therapy, I help clients learn effective strategies to manage difficult feelings, as well as develop greater insight into how they have been shaped by past experiences. My approach is integrative, and I incorporate psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, and other techniques to meet each client's needs. I also have expertise in psychological evaluation, and I do testing for learning disorders, ADHD, autism, and emotional concerns.

My work is grounded in the centrality of the therapeutic relationship and the knowledge that the mind and body are interconnected, and thus home to our emotions and our history, as well as a source of healing and growth. I will work with you to gain self-understanding, self-acceptance and self-esteem, healing from trauma, anxiety, or depression, and to strengthen your resources using a somatic, relational, and expressive approach. My work is informed by multicultural and community-based professional and academic experiences in the US and abroad.

Beginning therapy can be a difficult step. But if you find yourself stuck, repeating the same ineffective, undermining coping mechanisms and unable to manage your emotions, then it might be time to start working together to help you identify more effective and constructive approaches to achieve your goals.

I specialize in "overthinking" and am currently accepting new clients. In addition to my clinical training I have an extensive research background in anxiety, depression, relationships, overthinking, and eating disorders. I earned my Ph.D from Penn State and M.A. from Boston College. My approach to therapy is strength-based and results oriented. I adapt the work I do in psychotherapy to each individual client as I've found that each person benefits from an individualized treatment plan and a psychologist who is knowledgeable and experienced in a range of effective treatments.

Got a little one struggling with behavior issues? Perhaps you have a bigger one and you're not sure what the problems could be? I've worked with toddlers, young children, and teens experiencing challenges with depression, anxiety, problems with social media, and academic issues. I am consistent, honest, and work hard to ensure kids are gaining what's needed to enjoy both social and emotional success. I even work with teachers and daycare staff. If you need assistance with a challenging student, I can provide specialized school support to help determine next best steps.

I enjoy working with individuals and couples who are curious and hungry for more connection to themselves and others in their lives. When you start therapy, I will talk with you about what brings you to therapy, the life you want to create and what you think holds you back. I will reflect with you on how it feels to be with and collaborate with you on your own thriving. You are likely to display the same intra- and inter-personal patterns with me that enhance or impede your progress in your relationships at work and home. Most of my clients start therapy because of depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties and work challenges.

I enjoy providing support and encouragement to people who are facing life stage transitions and change with all of the stress, anxiety, as well as the excitement that these events may bring. My training is in family therapy and I work within the frameworks of family systems, attachment theory, as well as grief/loss and living with loss.

Unexpected challenges, loss, or the simple momentum of life can sometimes make it hard to feel solid or know how to respond. Inner distress or outward behaviors can make it difficult to feel good about oneself or get along with others. At these times, one can benefit greatly from the support of a trained therapist to explore experiences, feelings, and concerns. I create a confidential supportive space where clients have the opportunity to draw upon their inner strengths and capacity to grow, discover new perspectives, tools, and options for behavior, and develop as individuals to improve their quality of life.
