People seek psychotherapy feeling unhappy or helpless to bring about change in their life or fulfill their dreams. Patients are overcome with symptoms of depression, anxiety, eating disorders, substance abuse or other problems, which in reality are unconscious defenses, blocking repressed feelings about something that went wrong, often in childhood, which is not yet resolved. These defenses once were adaptive, by protecting and helping them survive, but are no longer effective. I help people work through their underlying grief and face their feelings (sadness, anger, disappointment, yearning, powerlessness) surrounding trauma or loss, enabling them to engage in more free, authentic, satisfying lives.

You are the one who always worries, but that’s just how you are. It’s a part of your personality. However now, you are starting to feel stressed and overwhelmed by mundane things in life. The idea of doing simple things feels like too much. At times, you worry for not worrying! You are trapped in the mental chatter and you just wish the world would stop for a second so you could get a moment of relief. You don’t have to be lost in your thoughts, feeling hopeless. I help anxious people like you become aware of their emotions and thoughts. I give tools to help you feel calmer and to quiet your mind.

I offer a safe space for individuals and couples to examine their lives, looking for places to develop and heal. I help clients to understand their personal histories, the fearful or anxious narratives they may be stuck in and to build positive change in their lives. My graduate studies at Harvard focused on trauma and resilience. I was drawn to my work by the question of how to help people tap into their internal resilience to heal from difficult experiences and to live their best life?

As a therapist, I integrate cognitive-behavioral and humanistic theories, which I find effective in building meaningful therapeutic relationships while simultaneously challenging and restructuring thoughts and modifying relevant behaviors. My personal and professional experiences living in different parts of the world have increased my sensitivity to the differences in how individuals from different cultural backgrounds experience mental health concerns and seek treatment. As such, I am passionate about making mental health resources accessible to a wide range of communities, and strive to provide culturally sensitive treatments.

Modern relationships are HARD. It’s a struggle to find the right person OR to wonder if your current partner is possibly the wrong person. It’s tough when you feel burned by or totally confused about your path. Maybe you’ve even made choices or overlooked things you now regret. Or, maybe it’s a relationship with a boss or coworkers who undervalue you or play favorites with others. Your work ethic and good ideas have long taken a backseat to putting out fires or just avoiding things way more than you should. You’re past thinking that life’s fair. But, you never thought that things could go THIS wrong or get under your skin THIS much.

Some of my favorite words to live by are, "if nothing changes, nothing changes". You deserve the opportunity to feel your best and I would be honored to help you on your way towards emotional healing and self-discovery. The best part of being a therapist is getting to witness and learn from all of the unique strengths and coping skills that everyone possesses, and helping them identify and access those gifts. I love working with people in all stages of life, and truly believe in the healing power of a strong, therapeutic relationship.
