I use a holistic approach, incorporating CBT, DBT, mindfulness, and psychodynamic approaches to treat depression, anxiety , life and college transitions, stress, family conflict and relationship issues.
Each and every one of us has an internal wisdom and light that guides us through our life. However, at times, life might not go as planned and we might lose our way a little, forgetting that inner beauty. My ultimate goal is to help you find the strength and realization that everything you need is already inside of you. Together, we will identify the sources of your pain and authentic steps to take to thrive. I work with adults 18 and over who would like to improve their quality of life. I have special interest and experience in working with issues surrounding trauma, as well as the challenges that surround motherhood.

I help people alleviate uncomfortable feelings, gain insight, and increase coping skills to overcome stress, anxiety , depression and life transitions (such as relocation, career transitions). Part of being human means that you will struggle at some point with unproductive thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, or unexpectedly have to manage something life throws your way. Clients I work with are motivated to develop advanced life skills to increase their happiness, self-confidence and emotional health and well-being and are seeking tools to assist them in the process.

I specialize in treating perfectionism, depression/ anxiety , emotional abuse, and trauma.
Sometimes it's hard to believe we're "good enough". It’s easier to count the things "wrong" with us, a litany of flaws glued to our identity all day, weighing us down. What is the nature of your self-talk? We all carry an inner story, formed gradually as we go through life. For some, that story is negative, maladaptive, or untrue. I provide a compassionate space where clients can lay down their anxieties, grief, and pain, as they pursue a path to healing. I work with clients to write a new inner narrative about themselves, rooted in self-compassion. Mindfulness and psycho-education assist in coping along the way.

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.

In therapy, I work collaboratively with clients to learn what they want in life and gain insights into what is getting in their way. Clients can then use such insights to create new strategies that eventually help them overcome their challenges and achieve what they want. As an Adlerian therapist, I use an empathetic, encouraging, egalitarian, and holistic approach to connect with, understand, support, and help empower clients.

Anxiety Therapists
At the core of anxiety is a mistaken appraisal of danger in which threats are exaggerated, triggering an array of negative feelings that overwhelm patients and lead to avoidant behavior. Therapists take aim at the three big components of anxiety—worry, physical arousal or edginess, and avoidance—by teaching one or more well-researched programs of skills that are custom-tailored to patients’ own worst thoughts.
