My practice provides safe and supportive environment to reduce pressure, discomfort, fear of judgment creating an atmosphere of trust, acceptance, and validation. This setting allows to speak openly about physical, emotional, and psychological concerns, to freely express doubts, believes, thoughts, feelings, emotions, ideas, and concepts. I encourage, but not pressure, exploring difficult situations, traumatic events, defense mechanisms, malfunctioning schema, identifying patterns, values, beliefs, connections between past and present; building on strengths to overcome challenges, realize potential and find meaning.

I integrate attachment based prospective, humanistic, holistic and strength based approaches incorporating CBT, mindfulness, DBT skills, and psychoanalytic elements. I treat anxiety, social anxiety, depression; OCD, adult ADHD, complex developmental trauma, interpersonal, intimacy, and identity issues, addictions, personality d/o, and chronic conditions.

My clients are diverse racially, ethnically, culturally with different social backgrounds and clinical issues. I work with adults, adolescents, families; have experience and welcome LGBTQ+ and non-binary individuals. I also provide parental advice and guidance and work with families through difficult life transitions, crisis, and conflicting situations.
