Announcement icon I am currently only accepting telehealth clients, via Zoom; link to be provided upon completion of consent forms received.
I am trained in providing evidence-based treatment for anxiety, depression, mood changes, and other mental health difficulties, including addiction and dual diagnoses and often works with clients who are struggling in their relationships and dealing with difficult life events. I have a specialization in family mediation, as it pertains to varied nuclear family structures, which may include the family court system. I am passionate about providing a comprehensive, multi-culturally competent, and LGBTQ+ affirming environment.
When I am not providing therapeutic services, I am a Mom to twins and an author. I consider myself spiritual and non-practicing Jewish, yet culturally competent and experienced in working with clients from a multitude of ethnic, racial, religious backgrounds, including agnostic/athiest.
I work w/adolescents, adults, couples, and families. I draw upon cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), insight development, mindfulness, and primarily utilize a family systems/attachment therapeutic lens, so as to provide a safe and supportive space from an integrative, interpersonal therapeutic approach, tailored to each unique client.
