As a licensed clinical psychologist, I work with a broad spectrum of clients including those with depression and anxiety disorders. I see individuals who struggle with interpersonal difficulties (i.e. relationship/intimacy issues) as well as those who suffer from intrapersonal problems related to their self-esteem, coping with major life transitions and managing stress. My clients care about their overall health and well-being in addition to seeking out the most effective solutions to their problems. Our work together is interactive and collaborative while I maintain a non-judgmental attitude.

I believe most psychological pain stems from a disconnection with one’s sense of purpose and meaning. In times of physical and mental stress, we often stray from our values and what brings us joy. Therapy serves as an integrative process that allows for a reconnection with what brings you a sense of meaning. Therapy allows you to heal through feeling heard and understood. My role is to guide you through the tough spots on your journey to help you continue on your desired path.

I believe that the relationship between therapist and client is the vehicle for lasting growth and change. Using a collaborative, integrative approach to treatment, we will work together to determine goals for treatment and then work toward achieving those goals. I believe in accessing and exploiting the strengths you bring to the treatment, as well as understanding how your particular culture and background have impacted your life experience. In addition, I do not believe that psychotherapy can be successful unless it occurs in a safe and supportive environment, which I strive to create and maintain.

Psychotherapy provides a unique space through which a new relationship with oneself and others can be forged. Change in patterns of feeling and relating can be achieved through a process of exploration of and reflection on one's deeply held beliefs, convictions, and values, and past and present experiences. My approach is collaborative and informed by psychodynamic perspectives. I strive to facilitate meaning, understanding, and empowerment through close attention to the details of one's internal life and external context. Many of the individuals I work with enter psychotherapy to work through depression and anxiety related to struggles with identity, relationships, loss, trauma, and migration.

I believe that human beings are, above all, adaptive. We develop powerful and unique ways to survive and succeed under conditions that are insensitive, unforgiving, and overwhelming. As a therapist, my approach builds upon the strength of this adaptive ability while remaining responsive to the anger, fear, and shame that can accompany it. I work with you to foster deeper self-compassion in the face of broader social circumstances that often encourage the opposite.
