"I believe people come to therapy because something isn't working for them. They need someone to listen to their story, hear the deeper meanings and make meaningful connections for them. They may be depressed over a relationship, experiencing a loss of self esteem, mourning a loved,seeking a deeper meaning in life, or becoming aware of a past trauma. Sharing their concerns with an experienced therapist can help connect past history to present allowing one tp gain meaningful insights into your life. Therapy is a place to share, unburden and grow toward the fullfillment you long for."

"Helping people succeed in love is my life’s work. I’ve dedicated my career to teaching people relationship skills because I know that the quality of your life is determined by the quality of your relationships. We don’t thrive in love by chance. We thrive in love when we’ve mastered relationship skills. None of us are born with them - but all of us can learn them. Because they’re skills. And, as a practicing therapist, I’m licensed to teach those skills. I have a Master’s Degree from Columbia University and a PhD from New York University. I’m also the host of E! Network’s Famously Single and the former Global Ambassador to Tinder. "

"Have your romantic relationships felt bland and uninspired? Have they lacked emotional or sexual connection and intimacy? Or perhaps your heart and your mind have been at odds - "My partner is everything I ever wanted but something is missing." Maybe you are starting to question the heteronormative trajectory thats brought you to this point - have you been dating people you thought you were "supposed" to date but never felt the electricity that everyone else was always talking about?"

"You’ve always been a little bit different – maybe you weren’t sure how, but that first boyfriend wasn’t as great an experience as everyone else seemed to report. Your first kiss? Kind of, “meh.” What weren’t you getting, you wondered? Why is everyone else so comfortable with this and I feel out of place? Even as you've become more comfortable with your identity, low self esteem, depression and anxiety have remained - sometimes in the background, other times so present it's hard to bear. Being LGBTQ identified doesn't always define who you are, but it informs your experience - and your therapy should recognize this fact."

"My goal as a therapist is to partner with clients to build on their strengths and deepen their perspective into the transitions and challenges they face. Often people choose to start therapy because they are seeking change. That change may involve finding new ways to cope with anxiety, depression, or other emotional pain. It may involve setting different boundaries in relationships. It may involve living life more intentionally and authentically, however one chooses to define that. Change can be overwhelming and is often difficult, but I believe therapy provides the support and insight needed to make any change easier to navigate."
