Right now I am offering therapy remotely, using video sessions. It actually works very well. The technology is easy, involving only a link to click at our appointment time. The connection is steady, secure, and HIPAA-compliant. I have been conducting video sessions as an effective part of my practice for many years. These days video offers the added bonus of being an ethical choice to reduce sickness and mortality. I welcome inquiries for working with adults, couples, families, and teens.

We encounter many transitions in our lives. Transitions often come with intense life events such as moving to a new country, going through a divorce or losing a loved one. They also come at different stages of life like being an adolescent or growing older. We can feel depressed, anxious, frustrated and lost. I believe transitions provide an opportunity to re-examine ourselves and explore life’s meaning. Together we address issues of identity, interpersonal relationships, grief & loss, loneliness, immigration, and aging.

For a long time now you have been looking for relief from the traumas, stressors and intensities that can arise as a part of everyday life. You may be feeling the weight of depression, or indecision; you may have learned to cope with life by starting to believe that your anxieties, self-defeating thoughts, insecurities and discomforts are simply who you are. Perhaps the idea and experience of internal and interpersonal freedom seem pleasant but have been unobtainable so far. You could be interested in exploring the fullness of your identity, learning to discover yourself and wondering how to show up as that person in your daily life

Full of curiosity, I'm eager to discover the motivations and obstacles behind these complex brains of ours (Psst they love repetition even if the outcome is lousy!) I work with a lot of execs, IT geeks, college students, members of academia, creative types; individuals, couples and sometimes teenage kids.

I offer a nonjudgmental, spacious relationship that can weather the natural ebbs and flows of the seasons of your life, so that when you define your compass and head out on that wide sea, you are not alone. Clarifying your own unique personal path, you gain self-knowledge, and can increase understanding of how to sustain energy to persevere on said path. This knowledge and acceptance naturally manifests life outcomes that are optimal for who you are becoming... Outcomes that are unknown to you presently.
