I have worked extensively with individuals, families and groups addressing issues related to depression, anxiety, grief, trauma and abuse.
I believe that the therapeutic relationship is foremost in creating a safe space for clients to explore issues, identify patterns of relating, resolve conflicts, find meaning and seek answers. I believe strongly that this relationship coupled with each client's unique history, needs and strengths will help serve as a guide to treatment. I have nearly 25 years of experience working with children, adolescents, adults and families.

I am a certified trauma professional - specially trained in trauma -informed approaches, but use an eclectic style of treatment.
My approach as a counselor is highly relational, I believe that acceptance, safety, and trust are important aspects of engendering connection with people, particularly in clinical work. We all have a unique lens through which we view and understand the world - I focus on understanding each individuals’ subjective experiences that create their realities and facilitating the exploration of perspective through a variety of expressions.

As a trauma -informed therapist, I understand that just as everyone has a story to tell, everyone has a story to heal from.
My own therapeutic journey has shaped the therapist I am today as someone who values creating non-judgmental safe spaces for my clients. As an Integrative therapist I believe there is no single approach that can treat each client in all situations. That is why we will use different therapeutic approaches that are tailored just for you from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Aspects of Acceptance Commitment Therapy, Psychodynamic therapy, and Mindfulness. Through collaboration we will create direction by exploring what matters most to you.The areas I specialize in are depression, trauma , self-esteem, life transitions, and other issues.

I work with couples, families, and individuals struggling with multicultural issues, GLBTQ issues, domestic violence, post-traumatic stress , childhood sexual trauma , infertility, and a multitude of other issues.

With respect, care, and guidance toward empowerment, my expertise is working with individuals, couples, and families navigating relationship obstacles, adult/child survivors of sexual abuse, LGBTQ clients, women of color, South-Asian clients, and clients from all walks of life.

I am passionately committed to helping people who have experienced trauma , who are struggling to live their fullest, most authentic lives. If that is you, you are a survivor and have possibly been made to feel “less-than.” That might mean you are a person who has experienced interpersonal, combat, or environmental trauma or are a member of the LGBTQ+ community and has experienced the trauma of being “othered.” I will work to help you heal, build resiliency, and recognize your potential. I will help you realize you have the power within yourself to break free from the suffering and grief of trauma and oppression.

I began my career as a practicing attorney representing women in abusive relationships in order of protection and divorce proceedings. As a therapist, I use my legal and therapeutic background to provide individual counseling prior to, during, and after divorce. Divorce is a traumatic life event that can have a ripple effect on nearly every aspect of one's life.

With a specialization in trauma , my training is inclusive of diverse treatment modalities and interventions.
I believe that every person holds unique life experiences that cumulate to create the story of who they are. These stories provide context to how people express themselves and view the world around them. Within the therapeutic space, I seek to meet clients in a warm, non-judgmental environment, one that is guided by a holistic framework to identify what health and wellness look like for each individual. By incorporating a strengths-based approach and emphasizing acceptance, I focus on collaboratively exploring each person's story to find the balance in accepting what they cannot control and making changes in areas they can.

Reaching out to a complete stranger to talk about your personal life can be unsettling. Oftentimes, what makes us uncomfortable helps us to grow. If you are ready to take the next step into therapy, know that I will start where you are and we will go from there. We will work together to come up with what you want out of therapy and work together to accomplish your goals. My aim is to provide you with a safe, non-judgmental, reflective space to continue your personal growth. In sessions, you will find my approach to be relational, strength based, and trauma informed.

As a trauma -informed therapist, I believe developing trust and safety within the therapeutic relationship is crucial to doing meaningful work together. For this reason, I strive to bring warmth and authenticity to my sessions with the goal of supporting clients in feeling truly seen and heard. In graduate school, I trained in feminist therapy which has informed my belief that clients are experts of their own experience and given me a deep understanding of how identity and oppression relate to one’s mental health. I am particularly interested in working with my clients around trauma , grief/loss, and relationships.
