I work with clients who are dealing with trauma-related issues including PTS that result in symptoms of anxiety and depression. To help people move through these difficulties, I incorporate EMDR and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction along with expressive arts and specifically music and sound in order for them to experience relief and be able to recognize their inherent healthy selves through body-mind awareness, creative inquiry, and artistic expression.​​

My therapeutic approach is based on a psychodynamic perspective with a strength-based, ego-supportive, and empathic stance. I am mindful of each individual’s unique needs and circumstances with a strong awareness of socioeconomic, cultural, and environmental factors that contribute to various experiences and stressors. I integrate nonverbal and verbal aspects of the therapeutic process through the use of creative arts as I've found both to be effective in exploring one’s unconscious mind and understanding how it may be affecting conscious behaviors and thought processes.

Is now is the "right" time to start therapy, especially given our new virtual realities? Research shows that the benefits of therapy are plentiful, with no difference between the gains made during in-person treatment vs. teletherapy! If you feel stuck, lonely, powerless, or just curious and motivated for change, there might be no better time than now to feel seen, heard and challenged to grow. Together, we will work to unpack past hurt, cope with present day worries or challenges, and cultivate future success in your personal and professional lives.

Therapy is the pursuit of change and as a process it hinges on your belief (however fragile) in a better life. As a therapist I privilege emotionally resonant, mutually engaged experience and one of my primary tasks is to learn how to be with you so that you can move toward connection and self-revelation.

It can be hard to ask for help, especially when you feel sad or anxious, lonely or struggling in a relationship, confused or overwhelmed, or insecure. Commonly, these feelings interfere with life, with accomplishing career goals or being satisfied in relationships. Maybe you have trouble motivating, or you're preoccupied with worry, or you're withdrawing from social activities - that you normally enjoy. Perhaps you find yourself stuck, repeating the same old patterns, never achieving what you really want. Feelings are an inevitable part of human existence. But you don't need to be suffering.

I specialize in treating anxiety, panic, stress, relationship concerns, OCD, and depression. Are your thoughts and behaviors self-defeating at times, blocking you from what you really want in life? We all see the world through different lenses, which are formed and strengthened by our genes, the messages we received growing up, and our accumulated experiences. Sometimes this lens can become distorted, causing us to perceive and interact with the world in unhelpful ways. Certain thinking and behavioral patterns may get in the way of relationships with others, with work, and with ourselves.
