I have adopted a mind-body-spiritual focus while working on issues related to trauma, anxiety, depression and addictions. I try to get each client to strive for balance among all aspects of their daily lives while trying to heal themselves from within. Adults and adolescents with anxiety and eating disorders with trauma histories resulting in addictive behaviors has been my primary focus. My goal is to assist clients in developing strong assertiveness skills through which self-empowerment and a sense of identity can emerge.

If you have been newly diagnosed with an illness (cancer, diabetes, heart disease, etc.), or if your illness has worsened or changed, you may feel confused and overwhelmed. You may find yourself struggling with sadness, grief, worry, and even irritability. I can help you navigate this landscape. I have specialized in working with people with complicated medical histories and treating co-occurring symptoms like anxiety, depression, grief/loss, sleeping and eating problems, relationship difficulties, and care-giving issues since the beginning of my career. I am also well-versed working with couple relationship problems and life transitions.

As a licensed clinical psychologist I dedicate my practice to the treatment of adult and geriatric populations. I help clients overcome traumatic experiences, anxiety, depression, & adjustment difficulties. I combine compassion and collaborative psychotherapy with EMDR to help clients reach optimal performance and transform their lives. In addition, I appreciate the personal difficulties athletes face and assist in breaking through mental barriers that prevent them from performing to their potential. At 13, I was selected to study at the School of American Ballet's summer intensive program followed by two successive summer intensive studies at the American Ballet Theatre in NYC.

I seek clients who are open to discovering their story and how it led them to their current circumstance. I am best able to nurture a relationship with a client who is aware of their reason for seeking support and is comfortable with a direct perspective to realizing their goals. My approach to working with adolescents, adults, couples, and families is centered on the philosophy that we are experiencing components of our personal story daily. When we conclude a chapter, it can impact the next chapter. By understanding our experiences and crafting our next steps, we can shape our story.

I believe healing is possible through an invitation to connect with your body, emotions, and thoughts. To build understanding about how your experiences, relationships, and culture have impacted your life.

Together, we will use body based interventions, emotionally focused work, and brain-based approaches like EMDR to reclaim the chapters of your life where difficult experiences stole your sense of who you are, and nurture growth, healing, and overcome loneliness.

As a therapist, I work from the perspective that therapy can enable you to positively change your understanding of yourself, your encounters with life's stressors, and your capacity to find pleasure and enjoyment. My approach is founded in building strong relationships based on trust and respect that enable one to develop tools to change existing patterns that previously caused unhappiness and discomfort. I utilize family and individually focused therapy and employ the methods of ACT, DBT, CBT and EMDR to help people bring understanding to their lives and enable transitions from discomfort and sadness toward happiness.

I specialize in treating Trauma (single event, long-term and attachment) with experiential therapies, including EMDR & Somatic Experiencing. These interventions recognize the need to go beyond changing your thoughts and focus on helping people regulate the body sensations and emotions that continue to be experienced. For example: a person may know that a traumatic event is over and yet continue to feel the emotion of anxiety and the body sensation of muscle tension (never truly relaxing or feeling safe). This can activate an impulse to run away from situations, become angry/defensive or shut down (depressed/ avoidant/dissociative)
