My experience consists of providing psychotherapy in a variety of settings including schools, rape crisis centers, residential treatment facilities, and adolescent inpatient units.
I view therapy as a collaborative process in which we can explore difficult feelings, promote greater self-understanding, and cultivate self-compassion. There is great care in building safe and warm relationships with my clients as they heal from pain and adversity and discover their capacity for growth and resilience.

I see individuals with a wide range of ages and presenting concerns, however I specialize in treating anxiety, OCD, and in adolescent psychotherapy.
With any and all presenting concerns, I provide a warm, non-judgmental environment. I have an integrative approach, with a particular focus on motivational enhancement, insight oriented exploration of past experiences, and when appropriate, specific tools and coping strategies. I use a number of research backed cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) protocols, which are proven to be effective in treating anxiety and depression. However, I am careful to use these methods in the context of a client centered and welcoming environment which accounts for an individual's particular needs, experiences, and readiness to change.

If your child or teen is struggling with low mood, anxiety, or adjusting to difficult circumstances, you're looking for a caring, skilled clinician who can help. As a licensed psychologist, I will listen to your family's story for strengths, challenges, and themes in order to develop a thoughtful, individualized treatment plan. I have found that building strong, trusting relationships with both patients and their caregivers is essential to successful outcomes in therapy. I will work one-on-one with your child, and collaborate with you to translate what we are doing in therapy into home, school, and beyond.

For my adolescent clients, I provide a safe, non-judgmental environment for them to be able able to talk about difficult feelings and experiences and come up with effective coping skills.
The decision to see a therapist can be a difficult one, as many people feel ashamed that they can't resolve issues on their own. Clients who come seeking help from me generally feel stuck in some areas of their lives. They often feel depressed and anxious. They are struggling in their careers, they are having problems in relationships, they are having difficulty adjusting to a new stage in life, and they may be trying to discover their place in the world. They repeatedly engage in self-defeating patterns and becoming involved in relationships that are ultimately unsatisfying.

I teach courses to clinical fellows on child and adolescent community-based therapy with urban youth.
Entering therapy is courageous. It can be a transformational space, a bridge from suffering to the discovery of choices that enable people to actively engage life. Depression, anxiety, fear and difficult feelings are not indicative of sickness, but rather signals that call for self-care, curiosity and empathy. I believe people's strengths are integral in the therapeutic process; I seek to help people access their humor, resilience, courage, intelligence, sensitivity and honesty throughout the healing process.

Have you ever been to see a therapist, and felt like you just talked the whole time, while the therapist just sat there and listened? Well, I am different. I am an active listener in sessions and believe that providing feedback is the best way to challenge behavior patterns and ultimately help you connect to your own strengths, wisdom, and inner resources. I ask questions and will engage you in a thoughtful way while providing you with a non-judgmental, supportive environment. I work with clients who seek assistance with a range of issues; such as OCD, eating disorders, anxiety, and more.

Maybe you can't seem to find the "right" job, or the "right" man, or the "right" city, no matter how many options you try. Maybe you feel like you've let others determine your life choices. Maybe you know you're not on the path you should be, but have no clue what "your path" actually is. Call that a Quarter Life Crisis, call it "adulting" problems. No matter what you call it, if you're tired of feeling like you're wasting your life without a clear direction, I can help you get on the path YOU want to be on. In addition, I'm trained also in working with people in Narcissistic Abuse, Attachment Styles & Toxic Relationships.

Life is never straightforward, and we are often left facing changes that are both surprising and difficult to navigate. Our shift into a new role, a disappointment at work, a problem in a relationship can cause us to feel anxious, angry, sad, and confused. We try our best to manage these struggles and their resulting shifts in mood and achievement, sometimes using coping strategies that turn out to be more problematic than helpful. We are left thinking, what happened? Will I ever feel like my old self? Why can't I just get over this?

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence.
