My approach is a modern integration of psychodynamic and existential psychotherapy—greatly informed by both current neurobiological research and Buddhist psychology.
My practice focuses on helping adolescents and adults who are struggling to overcome anxiety, depression, and adjustment disorders. I have particular expertise in working with men of all ages. I also focus on couples that are struggling to resolve differences and achieve greater harmony and intimacy. Often, differing parenting styles contribute to disconnects within a couple, particularly when parenting children with emotional, behavioral or developmental challenges and differences. I work with such couples to create a more unified parenting structure and to strike the important balance of familial obligation and self-care.

My approach integrates existential-humanistic psychology, practices of Buddhism, and assertiveness training.
After some thorough reconsideration of the current socio-cultural landscape, I have decided to focus my efforts on those disillusioned, displaced, and depressed young adults who struggle with three attributes that are necessary (if not imperative) to live a fulfilling life: Self-reliance, Self-sufficiency, and Self-governance. I believe that the facilitation of these realistic, accountable, and disciplined attributes will only create a much more valuable and enlightening existence.

If you are struggling with anxiety, depression, after-effects of childhood abuse, relationship difficulties (romantic/family/work/children) or overall emotional pain, then therapy may be potentially beneficial. I am a Licensed Psychologist with 16+ years of experience providing therapy to individuals of varied backgrounds and ages, in various settings (private practice, colleges, hospitals, clinics, telehealth). I use a strength-based approach - simply put, I assume that you have many strengths, either known or waiting-to-be-discovered. I also incorporate existential perspectives in my work, if relevant.

My specialities include (but are not limited to): trauma & complex trauma, addiction/substance use, anxiety, depression, identity-related concerns, relational volatility, depression, life transitions, mood instability, and spiritual/existential concerns.
Those I collaborate with have unique lived experiences connected to a variety of complex histories, outcomes, dynamics, and adaptive responses. They’re in search of a therapist who is resonant, attuned, and with the times; someone who can meet them in their intricacies and provide a safe space devoted to the exploration of their inner and outer worlds. My goal is to offer just that: to co-create therapeutic experiences that fully honor the entirety of a persons being - not just their symptoms, identified labels, and categorizations.

Traumatic experiences can take a heavy toll, and not just in the moment. Symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or complex PTSD (CPTSD) can last for weeks, months, even years after the event. I am passionate about helping adolescents and adults heal from the effects of trauma so that you can reclaim your vitality, and establish a genuine sense of connection with yourself, others, your body and your soul. While my therapeutic approach is eclectic, Somatic Experiencing (SE) is foundational to my work. SE is a body-oriented and naturalistic approach to the resolution and healing of trauma, developed by Dr. Peter Levine.

I value the vital role of the therapeutic relationship in the process of healing and personal growth. My aim is to help clients become more aware of the thoughts and emotions that underlie their distress. With new insights, unhelpful emotional and behavioral patterns can change, opening up new ways of experiencing oneself and others. I see individuals who are struggling with feelings of sadness, disappointment and loss, as well as worry and anxiety. Many who seek care feel dissatisfied in their relationships, unfulfilled at work or in school, or are looking for ways to manage the stress of serious illness or life-altering events.

Are you suffering from a loss -- or losses -- in your life? Have you lost a loved one? A relationship? Are you anticipating a loss? Loss and grief can be so painful, both emotionally and physically. What was, no longer is. The people and things you believed you could count on may no longer be available. Loss and grief can feel disorienting, like the ground under you has crumbled or shifted and you no longer know what’s up or down. You might feel stuck. You might feel like nothing will be good again. Loss and grief can bring up all kinds of feelings and reactions. They’re all valid.

As a psychologist, I appreciate the opportunity to witness peoples’ capacity for not only surviving, but also thriving in today’s complicated world. My experience over the past decade has brought me to understand the many ways a therapist’s role is akin to that of a gardener tending to a lotus. Just as the young lotus needs tender care and stillness, I provide a safe, nurturing and collaborative environment. Respecting the lotus’s need for sunlight, I approach therapy with warmth, openness and humor. As a Confucian scholar once said, “I love the lotus because while growing from mud, it is unstained.”

Crisis have a way of revealing long running problems and often, our complacency about them. Most of us have an ability to tolerate and live with uncomfortable situations as long as we have a chance to escape or blow off steam sometimes. The pandemic took away those options and we are asked to consider what is essential to our life, on a deeply personal level, in relationships, in society at large, and globally. My goal is to help you explore this current opportunity we are presented with and to find a path forward.

It is easy to feel overwhelmed and lose one's sense of True North. Issues and experiences from the past may require healing and integration. Current challenges may require more inner wisdom and resourcefulness than we can access on our own. Many people need support to resolve conflicts, deepen connections and expand their lives. Relationships require a solid sense of self, good boundaries, and compassion toward oneself and others, which all can be learned. Even without a religious affiliation, spiritual practices such as gratitude are often enriching. I value new insights, suggest homework and teach practical skills.

Being human is hard. In a world that conditions us to live an unconscious life, self-reflection and building our intuition is an act of rebellion. We all struggle to find meaning, balance, and peace within the chaos of living. Life inherently involves suffering, and sometimes navigating those big life transitions, traumas, or general feelings of anxiousness or lack of interest in life can get overwhelming. The choice to ask for support when we’re struggling is a radical act of self-care, bravery, and accountability.
