NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS AT THIS TIME All of us at times find ourselves overwhelmed by problems that we struggle to cope with on our own, whether around difficult relationships, life transitions, family stress, disruptive traumatic memories, or a sense of isolation or despair. My goal is to help my clients better recognize and understand their feelings, thoughts and behaviors and to mobilize their own innate strengths to reduce suffering, create positive change, and feel stronger and more connected.
I work with adolescents, young adults, adults and families struggling with a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, trauma/PTSD, relationship problems, health problems and life transitions. My orientation is psychodynamic. I employ a number of evidence-based therapeutic methods, including EMDR, in order to honor the client's goals for therapy.
Prior to becoming a psychotherapist, I worked in global public health, in both developed and developing countries, to address the problem of maternal mortality. I bring to my practice an awareness of the unique concerns of individuals and families from diverse cultures and backgrounds and with international placements, as well as clients with health issues.
