"You can't adjust the wind, but we can adjust the sails." While we may not be able to change the factors that come our way, we can change the ways in which we approach whatever has caused difficulty. This quote encapsulates my sensitive, inviting, and unique approach to psychotherapy. I work with a variety of patients, including children, adolescents, and young adults, through many presenting issues: relationships, anxiety, depression, adjustments, school, college, grief/loss, childhood, trauma/PTSD, self-esteem and unresolved conflict, among others. Together we will explore, leaving you with a better understanding of yourself.

My clinical training at Columbia University, college counseling centers, private practice, summer camp, and a crisis center, among other settings, allows me to bring unique skills to your therapy. My clinical work encompasses relational, psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, and mindfully-based modalities. This allows me to meet you exactly where you are.

Together, we'll find the approach that works for you. Patients often describe me and my style of therapy as "warm, empathetic, different, and personal." I'll listen sensitively, towards an unbiased understanding of you and your story. Please feel free to reach out. Together, your therapy will lead to happiness, insight, and improved quality of life. Welcome!
