Until 2016, I was a faculty member at the University of Rochester where I was engaged in psychotherapy education, patient care, and research on treatments for trauma and depression .
I value the vital role of the therapeutic relationship in the process of healing and personal growth. My aim is to help clients become more aware of the thoughts and emotions that underlie their distress. With new insights, unhelpful emotional and behavioral patterns can change, opening up new ways of experiencing oneself and others. I see individuals who are struggling with feelings of sadness, disappointment and loss, as well as worry and anxiety. Many who seek care feel dissatisfied in their relationships, unfulfilled at work or in school, or are looking for ways to manage the stress of serious illness or life-altering events.

At any stage of development, we are bound to encounter obstacles to our ability to thrive. I help clients to become proactive agents in their own process. I have worked extensively with clients across all ages to reduce symptoms, promote growth, and instill lasting change. I support children, teens, adults, and families in healing from anxiety, trauma, grief, and depression . I have a speciality in working with LGBTQIA+ individuals, especially GNC and transgender folks. I am licensed to treat people in about 25 states. This means if you relocate for college or other life circumstances, you can maintain continuity of treatment.

I work best with individuals in which are internally motivated for change, looking to work collaboratively alongside the individual to explore depression , anxiety, PTSD, codependency, and much more. My approach to therapy is person-centered and solution-focused, focused on offering a kind, compassionate, yet straightforward approach to growth, which encourages individuals to think deeper and build connections that will assist them with a better understanding of the underlying issues. I believe that the client-therapist relationship is by far the most important aspect that encourages internal growth.

My approach ranges from DBT and mindfulness work for anxiety and depression to the traditional psychodynamic and interpersonal therapy.
Many of my clients share a need to explore familial relationships to understand their behavioral patterns and how to make those patterns healthier. Others struggle with anxiety or depression and wish to learn coping skills to better handle the challenges of daily life. Additionally, I have worked with Princeton undergraduate and graduate students for many years and understand well the many and varied challenges which students may face.

Are you feeling stuck in a difficult circumstance or a relational conflict? Do you find yourself limited by fear, anxiety, lack of motivation or clarity? Are you discerning whether or not to stay in a current relationship? This can be a painful space. I believe we all have access to deep, still waters within us that can guide and direct us to deeper peace and clarity. Sometimes, we struggle to access that "knowing part" of us. I have 20 years of helping guide men, women, couples, adolescents and families gain skills and find deeper, more peaceful waters in seasons of grief, anxiety, depression , divorce & couple's conflict.

I enjoy the challenge of working with a client who has low self-esteem. This client might experience depression , relationship issues, worry about doing things wrong and feel like a failure. The client might not be able to identify specific goals/needs. The client wants higher self-esteem so she can feel better about herself.

My ideal client would be willing to work with me systemically, meaning someone willing to look beyond themselves and think, “Why is this happening?” instead of just thinking they are the problem. For example, if someone is coming in to work on depression and anxiety, my ideal client would be willing to explore the underlying issues contributing to the depression and anxiety instead of someone who is only looking for coping skills and such.

My specialties include working with adolescents and adult that are experiencing one of the following: life transitions that are difficult to cope with, trauma, chronic illness/pain, anxiety, depression , existential and stage-of-life issues, and stress that has been difficult to manage on your own.
I believe strongly that we all have the capacity for positive change, no matter where we start out. Therapy should provide a warm, collaborative, and nonjudgmental space in which clients can explore new goals, solutions, and ways of being. I seek to empower clients by fostering greater awareness and understanding of their thoughts, behaviors, environments, and interpersonal patterns. My approach is tailored to each person and their needs, but often incorporates concepts from Cognitive-Behavioral, Interpersonal, and Person-Centered therapies, as well as Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction techniques.

Helping these individuals navigate challenges (relationship issues, anxiety/ depression , and disordered eating) to create successes during these transitional years is the primary focus of my practice.
Study after study indicates that what "works" in therapy is the quality of the relationship between the client and therapist. I create a strong relationship in which my clients feel safe and understood while sharing and exploring their lives. I conceptualize from a psychodynamic orientation and contour treatment to the specific needs of the individual.

>TELEHEALTH/VIDEO SESSIONS BEING CONDUCTED DURING PANDEMIC< Though change is a fundamental part of being human, it can sometimes be a difficult process. Anxiety, depression , stressful mental and physical conditions, and unhealthy behavior patterns that often accompany change can be eased with therapy. Choosing a psychotherapist is an important step, and a good fit between therapist and client is a part of that process. I offer you a safe and interactive atmosphere where you will be heard, supported and given feedback.

My ideal client is an adult seeking therapy of their own free will, even if they are experiencing some hesitation regarding its helpfulness. The client's lower hierarchal needs will be met (physical and safety) so that we can appropriately work on issues with relationships, self-esteem, and self-actualization. In addition, the client may have an array of problems related to anxiety and/or depression and will need a space without judgment to explore their thoughts, emotions, and reactions to the world around them.

I enjoy working with clients who are transitioning to the next stage of their lives or want to set new life/career goals. The next step could be transitioning from high school to college, beginning a new relationship, or a new career/job. I like to support the client with exploring these new goals, help build confidence/self-esteem to take those first steps towards them, and re-evaluate goals if necessary. I find that these transitions come with a lot of anxiety, depression , and other mental health issues that can hold clients back, which I like to explore, build solutions, and help them realize that goals are achievable.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in Princeton. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
