Are you looking to improve performance and fulfillment in your life through improved management of daily stressors, anxiety, sports, career, school, health habits or other life transitions? I am a sport and performance psychotherapist that is passionate about working with individuals who are looking to overcome mental blocks and maladaptive patterns to realize their full potential in sport, career, school, and every facet of life. I take a human centered approach and create a genuine relationship in which we can explore strengths and areas of improvement, non-judgmentally. All sessions are uniquely curated to meet your needs.
Entering therapy is a bold, brave step. Most people who have been struggling have tried everything they know to feel better. Asking for support from a therapist marks a turning point. I offer clients my clinical judgment and attention that is rooted in a blend of Psychodynamic, Relational-Cultural and Mindfulness theories as well as Sensorimotor Psychotherapy. I integrate these concepts into our work in clear, understandable and practical ways. My clients tell me that they appreciate my real and authentic presence; my gentle, direct and honest feedback; and my engaging and interactive way of talking with them.
Taking the first few steps toward working on your mental health is a sign of significant strength and resilience. Finding a therapist can definitely feel overwhelming, but taking the time to find the right fit and ensuring you feel a connection is worth the effort, and is actually a therapeutic element of engaging in therapy. I look forward to supporting you through this journey and investment in your mental well-being.
Hello! I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker, and I provide individual therapy to adults, young professionals, and college/graduate students. I have helped individuals cope with depression, anxiety, and other mood & trauma-related symptoms. I have supported many individuals process and navigate life transitions/changes, enhance self-esteem, solidify a stable identity/sense of self, form deeper connections with others, and improve their ability to identify, manage, and express emotions. I aim to develop a strong therapeutic alliance with my clients by providing a non-judgmental, supportive, and empathic space.
The decision to begin therapy can be challenging and can follow attempts to manage difficult life circumstances independently. I view therapy as a collaborative process in which clients are encouraged to explore thoughts, feelings, and behaviors in a supportive, nonjudgmental, and compassionate setting. I work with a diverse range of clients including college students, athletes, young professionals to high level executives, and parents. I have specialized expertise working with elite athletes, dancers, and other types of artists/performers on improving performance as well as treating mental health concerns.
At some point, we all experience difficulties and unpleasant emotions in life. I help clients to learn how to cope with family changes, life transitions, loss, school and work stressors and help develop meaningful relationships through exploring relationship patterns. To meet the individual needs of each client, I empower them to gain self-awareness of their thoughts, feelings and behaviors. Together we identify their personal strengths, practice mindfulness, and develop coping strategies that can be utilized daily.
With the ever-expanding responsibilities of living and working, it can be easy to fall into a pattern of going through the motions and merely surviving, rather than thriving. We will collaborate to identify and express your individual needs, and work together to leverage your unique strengths and perspectives into development and fulfillment.
Seeking therapy or finding a new therapist can sometimes be both intimidating and stressful. I have found, however, that once the right match is made, the therapeutic relationship almost always matures into an integral and rewarding aspect of my clients' routines and lives. I strive to engage my clients in a collaborative partnership as they process feelings, explore solutions and improve relationships. My eclectic and person-centered approach ensures that you continue to be the experts of your own lives, while I provide a supportive, empathic and non-judgmental space for you to change or cope with life's various challenges.
With life becoming increasingly demanding, it can feel like we are always battling on a new frontier. We do not, however, have to power through it alone! Whether it’s with relationships, family, jobs, college, new cultural environments or even ourselves, I aim to support my clients with recognizing and managing the emotional impact that life’s torrent of changes has on us all. My therapeutic approach is to create an accepting relationship so sessions can be a comfortable and judgment free zone.

In practice, I meet my clients where they are, without judgment, and help them forge a new path forward.
