About

My treatment approach is integrative and personalized to my clients’ needs, focused on building a foundation of trust. I work with clients to identify underlying roots of problems and elicit existing and new strengths and resources. I prefer a holistic approach to treatment which, while based in a psychodynamic framework, draws from my specialized training in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), motivational interviewing, attachment based, trauma-informed and mindfulness modalities. I work with adults ranging from young adulthood through end of life, using a culturally-sensitive approach.
I treat mood disorders, anxiety, trauma/PTSD, substance use, ADHD and concerns related to identity, sexuality and gender. I specialize in addressing major life changes rooted in trauma, relational loss/distress, grief, career/school transitions, coping with loved ones’ illnesses and surgery/injury recovery. I value working with LGBT and diverse populations.
Much of my work is rooted in addressing the trauma in all of our lives and how it manifests in our bodies, relationships, language and perspectives. Untangling these conflicts enables my clients to live freer, happier lives by identifying untapped sources of joy and releasing unresolved trauma, guilt and shame that may keep them from living their best lives.
