Your 20s and 30s are an important time of self-determination. If you're feeling stuck or lost, I can help you develop the tools and insights you need to enjoy this time of your life. With individuals, I specialize in helping young professionals and grad students with academic and workplace adjustment, anxiety, burnout and stress management, multicultural stressors, and relationship and sexual issues (low desire, pain & orgasm challenges). With couples, I have expertise in helping partners improve communication and conflict skills and manage sexual issues (differences in desire, enhancing intimacy).

I use evidence-based treatments to quickly help you pinpoint stumbling blocks and create healthier thoughts and behaviors that stick. I don't just sit silently--I actively offer my thoughts and ideas on what might help you. My style is warm and supportive, yet direct and collaborative.

As a bicultural, multiethnic psychologist, I value working with people from diverse cultural, sexual, and ethnic backgrounds. I believe that therapy is most successful when we can harness and empower your individual and cultural strengths. If you have any questions, please contact me--I look forward to hearing from you!
