I specialize in mindfulness and acceptance-based therapies, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) for depression, anxiety, and life stress.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist providing telehealth (phone, video) therapy in Massachusetts and New York. I work with young adults (18-30), couples, families, and older adults (65+) for challenges related to mood (depression and anxiety), relationship and identity changes, and challenges stemming from neurological conditions such as concussion, traumatic brain injuries, and stroke. I am also a researcher within the Harvard Medical School system, and started my private practice to more flexibly deliver evidence-based approaches and share the latest science on what can help live well and navigate stressors effectively.

My specialties include: trauma (PTSD, intergenerational trauma, dissociation), multicultural psychology, immigration/acculturation issues, international students, spiritual issues, somatic work, and mindfulness .
I am accepting new teletherapy/virtual clients (Zoom only). I am a Boston University School of Medicine/Boston Medical Center affiliated faculty. I believe people come to therapy when they feel stuck in their lives with no options in sight. Many times, these feelings stem from a lack of understanding of past trauma histories, misunderstandings in relationships, accumulated stress, lack of self-compassion, identity confusion, and unmet needs, among others. I create a safe and genuine space to help you sort out these feelings and problems, while promoting a sense of self-agency and self-love.

My approach is client-centered and informed by evidence-based practices, including Lifestyle Medicine (nutrition, physical activity, sleep hygiene, and stress management), Solution Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness Practice.
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 use client centered approaches such as relational theory, CBT, psychodynamic theory, acceptance and commitment, and mindfulness skills.
- Limited afternoon openings Nov '22 - In my work with clients I am dedicated to helping others find their own path to personal fulfillment. I believe each of us can expand on the ways we deal with stress and relationships. I am committed to creating a warm, interactive and compassionate therapeutic environment. I have experience treating issues of anxiety, depression, relational stress, substance abuse and trauma. This pandemic has created so many new sources of stress and hardship, while often weakening our supports and connections. I believe therapy is a comforting and effective way to focus on our self care and well being.

During our sessions, I will guide you through personalized practices including mindful movement (breathing, stretching), mindfulness , and meditation, which are meant to build awareness, concentration and resilience-all necessary elements to make lasting changes in your life.
Unfortunately, the stressors of life are unlikely to go away; it's part of the human experience to face change, illness, loss, disappointment, frustration, and anger. While we can't make these challenges disappear, we can learn to relate to them in a new way, one that allows for acceptance, compassion, and appreciation for the present moment. As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Dance/Movement Therapist, and Certified Yoga Teacher, I blend contemplative practices with traditional talk therapy and psychoeducation to support your mental, emotional, physical and spiritual growth.

My approach is integrative, utilizing aspects of interpersonal process and CBT, along with mindfulness and acceptance based interventions.
In my role as counselor, I’m guided by a desire to deeply understand who you are, how you see yourself and your place in the world, and the changes you want to make to lead a more fulfilling life. People are only able to reach a space of true healing and growth when they feel a deep-seated sense of safety. I work hard to create this by making space for intersecting identities and intentionally challenging thoughts and feelings that have historically caused clients to feel ashamed. No one should have to suffer alone. The therapy process can be an onerous and vulnerable one; it can also be transformative and joyful.

Mindfulness-Based (MBCT) Therapists
For clients with chronic pain, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and other health issues such as anxiety and depression, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, or MBCT, is a two-part therapy that aims to reduce stress, manage pain, and embrace the freedom to respond to situations by choice. MCBT blends two disciplines--cognitive therapy and mindfulness. Mindfulness helps by reflecting on moments and thoughts without passing judgment. MBCT clients pay close attention to their feelings to reach an objective mindset, thus viewing and combating life's unpleasant occurrences.
