I love helping lawyers and other stressed out and exhausted human beings heal, grow, and thrive by reconnecting to themselves and the people they love. As a former BigLaw and in-house lawyer, I know how the overwhelming stress and demands of our profession can take a toll on both us and our relationships. I work with individuals and couples to tame that stress and build lives and relationships full of meaning, peace, and joy.
I stand shoulder to shoulder with clients throughout their healing journey. I am focused on creating a safe, compassionate space where you'll feel seen and heard, and which will catalyze your healing. My approach is rooted in Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP), Imago Relationship Therapy, and Compassion Focused Therapy.
Whether you've tried lots of different ways to get relief or you are just starting the process, I would love to talk with you to see how I can help you find peace and connection with yourself and your relationships and build an authentic and meaningful life - personally and professionally.
