I believe the foundation of living a truly fulfilling life comes from genuine and nurturing connection to others. As a therapist, my work consists of helping you find this type of connection through embracing vulnerability, increasing acceptance, and learning to live whole-heartedly. Through our collaboration together, we can gently and compassionately explore your needs, hopes, and fears while empowering you to utilize your strengths. Ultimately, you will arrive at a place of greater integration of all parts of yourself, while developing greater curiosity, flexibility, acceptance and understanding of the painful emotions and challenges that arise throughout life.

My approach is empathic and nonjudgmental. I have experience working with a diverse array of clients and situations. I offer individual, couples and family therapy, and utilize a relational approach in my practice. I have extensive experience working with families in distress as well as with trauma. I am trained in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Level 2.

Areas of my interest and expertise include: finding work-life balance, navigating through transitions and search for identity, career challenges, concerns of new immigrants and children of immigrants (such as acculturation while holding on to core values/identity), religious/existential issues, divorce, relationship issues, trauma, eating disorders, depression, and anxiety.
