I am a licensed clinical psychologist providing integrative, evidence-based treatments to adults, adolescents, and couples.
In short, I love my work. I get to help individuals grow and become more of who they are. As they are better able to cope with obstacles such as stress, anxiety, and depression, I watch them find greater fulfillment in their relationships, career/academics, and overall wellbeing. In my practice I treat a breadth of concerns ranging from psychiatric symptoms (e.g., depression, anxiety, eating disorders) to relationship issues, family issues, low self confidence, trauma, and grief.

The goal is to help you recognize and understand your next steps going forward by using integrative approaches that fit into your uniqueness.
Every individual is unique, whole and complete. Sometimes we have a hard time acknowledging this part and embracing who we are. Perhaps you need extra support or new tools to help navigate where you are at this moment in life. Part of one's journey is releasing old energies that are holding you back in order to move forward. If you are seeking holistic approaches in your therapy sessions, you've come to the right place. While keeping the traditional foundations of therapy, my focus is more "thinking outside the box" in regards to the individual and empowering you to figure out what works best for you.

My passion is working with adolescents, college students, adults, and couples. I help clients navigate the parts of their life that are feeling particularly difficult. You may be feeling stuck in life, experiencing anxiety/depression, or having issues within your relationship. You may also be feeling off without knowing where to even start. These are typical starting points for many clients and are challenges that can be addressed in therapy. Working together is an opportunity to explore your feelings and the type of relationship you want both with yourself and with others.

Living a successful creative life is possible. Are you an artist, writer, musician, academic, or an entrepreneur who is struggling to overcome obstacles to fully realizing the life you desire? It could be that you feel stuck in self-criticism, or maybe you have noticed a problematic pattern in your relationships. You may experience symptoms related to an unresolved trauma that you are ready to release, or you may feel anxious, depressed, or overwhelmed and wonder if you will ever feel better. As a highly creative and highly sensitive person, your needs will best be met by a therapist who is fluent in the language of the imagination.

Are you feeling out of control of your stress or burnout? It is difficult to get through life, achieve your goals, and be your authentic self when you are struggling with severe, chronic anxiety, worry, panic attacks, phobias or social anxiety, along with the accompanying depression. You may have already tried medications and learned techniques to quiet your mind but if you are still anxious, and also depressed, it is a good idea to consider a form of therapy targeted to these issues.
