Therapy can empower you to cope with and improve a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, relationships, loss, low self-esteem, past trauma, identity issues, and insecurities. My gentle, strengths-based approach will help you recognize the best in yourself and tolerate difficult feelings, while promoting changes in your life. I have a nonjudgmental attitude and appreciate each individual's cultural, spiritual, and family backgrounds.

With therapy, it's all about the fit. There is no "one size fits all" approach. I focus on the person, not the diagnosis. My goal is to assist clients in reaching their personal and professional goals in a safe and confidential environment where they feel understood and heard. With over 15 years experience in "Corporate America" before transitioning to a career in therapy, I am equipped to offer personal life experience to my clients in order for them to develop healthier coping skills and work through unresolved issues.

We all have a unique journey in life, as individuals and as couples, and I believe that our resilience is as unique as our journey. I work with clients to help them overcome distressing cycles that make them feel stuck and empower them to find stability, create healthier relationships and live an enriched life. Together we explore underlying emotions and find new ways of coping with past traumas, difficult life transitions, loss, relational distress and other mental health issues. While EMDR, mindfulness and cultural sensitivity are at the core of my practice, I also integrate Psychodynamic and CBT interventions.

People look for therapists for many reasons. Perhaps you are having a hard time coping with a difficult life event or transition. Or, maybe, you have felt for some time that there is something missing in your personal or professional life. In my practice, I work with people struggling with depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, eating disorders, and concerns about sexual orientation. I also have significant experience treating college and graduate students, and have special interests in working with lawyers and law students, as well as with people facing the challenges of infertility, pregnancy and pregnancy loss, and parenting.

Healing and change are possible for all of us. I am reminded daily of people's innate ability to mend and grow if they are provided with the right tools in a supportive and compassionate environment. Past traumatic events can leave scars and behavior patterns that can get in the way of people leading the life that they choose. I create a safe space where we can work together to allow scars to heal and transformative change to take place. My clients experience healing from sexual trauma, adverse life events, relationship issues, generalized anxiety, and dissociative symptoms and they find freedom from feeling "stuck".
