I am working with both adolescents and adults. My theoretical orientation to counseling and psychotherapy is rooted in the philosophy of a humanistic- existential approach to human functioning. I use the tenets of individual responsibility to choice and decision-making and apply them within a cognitive-behavioral perspective (CBT) to counseling and clinical work. I consider myself a generalist with specialty training in cognitive rehabilitation, vocational/career counseling, as well as psychoeducational testing and other evaluations, such as pre-surgical evaluations (e.g., for bariatric procedures).

With nearly 10 years of experience, I have learned severe emotional trauma occurs if trauma is long-standing, repeated, or targets an individual’s self-worth. Self-compassion is the ability to forgo self-blame in order to forgive oneself for imperfections, as well as natural and honest reactions to traumatic events. Self-compassion has been shown to decrease mental health symptoms (e.g., anxiety, depression, shame) related to trauma, and increase positive psychological traits (happiness, joy). I utilize this approach alongside existential questions related to substance use, career choice, family issues, self-worth, and trauma.

I connect best with adults who are looking to work through life transitions, past traumas (ACOAs), existential crises, spiritual concerns, emotional effects of chronic illness, grief and loss, immigration/acculturation, gender and sexual identity, and general relationship and familial challenges.
At some point in our lives, we arrive at a crossroads where we realize that the ways in which we have been engaging in life are no longer working for us. Our behaviors, values, and ways of thinking are so familiar and comfortable to us yet are simultaneously causing us grief and pain. We feel blocked from finding inner peace and reaching our full potential. The purpose of therapy is to help us recognize and work through these antiquated patterns so that we can start engaging with ourselves and the world around us in a fresh, new way that results in a healthier, happier, and more authentic life.

I think as human beings we want to feel seen, heard, appreciated, respected, loved, and valued. I believe most of us want to make a difference in the lives of those around us, our loved ones, friends and community. Making a difference and enjoying healthy and gratifying relationships and contributing to one's community can take many forms but they all involve relationships. If you find yourself feeling deeply unhappy, confused and dissatisfied in any of your relationships, I'd like to learn more about you and what you are seeking in your life and in your relationships.

Some days it seems like everything is finally under control but other days you feel alone and stretched thin. It feels like what you're doing is never enough. You get lost in your thoughts and overanalyze, which leaves you feeling overwhelmed, anxious, resentful and at times, totally defeated. It isn't easy for you to open up about what you're really going through and you sometimes wonder, "What's the point? How will talking about my problems out loud solve anything?" Despite being skeptical about therapy, you're hopeful that things can be different. Besides, you've tried everything else you can think of.

We are all brimming with contradictions. "Who am I, really, myself?" is a question that haunts every one of us, even if we're unaware. We compose a simpler personage to escape the vertigo of our tangled complexities. The whole of social life is like a game, a continual camouflage, which serves as a diversion, but is like an enslavement we cannot tear ourselves from. Every society and movement acquires its own vocabulary and code of behavior (one doesn't notice if one is on the inside). Outside of close intimacy real honesty seems utopian.

When will you stop putting your healing on the back burner? Can you imagine what life will be like once you are free from your mental burdens? Anxiety, depression, trauma, and stress can weigh you down, causing you to live life feeling unfulfilled and unhappy.

My goal is to meet where you are and help you get to where you want to be. I will provide a non-judgmental space for you to finally let it out.

Do you regularly find that the demands of modern life make you feel caught - or hooked - in imperfect situations, flailing like a fish on a line? Do you want to do something bigger and better with your life such as explore the world, experience true love, complete a major project, succeed in your career, start a new business, improve your physical health and develop meaningful relationships with family? Most of us do, but sometimes, our day-to-day actions don't align with these intentions and goals. Rather than remaining trapped by your circumstances, patterns and thoughts, isn't it time to move forward and take action?

Do you feel disconnected from your friends, family and self? Do you struggle with making decisions and feel as though time is slipping away from you? This is commonplace in our society as we are constantly being pulled in different directions by the demands of our world. I value the power of integrating one's mental, physical, and spiritual self into daily living so that we find purpose and happiness in the moment, regardless of the activity, and begin the process of recognizing what choices we have in our power to create the life that we find meaningful.
