I enjoy working alongside those who need assistance with anxiety and related disorders. These issues can make you feel like your whole body is affected - it can leave you feeling isolated, scared, angry, or stuck. We all go through challenging times and are faced with difficult uncertainties. If you desire a relief from the often times debilitating "what-ifs", I would like to help. It's my goal to provide a non-judgmental, safe, and supportive space where we can begin to understand the root of what triggers your fears and thoughts. We may explore how the past impacts you today and how you view the world and those around you.
Accepting new clients for September, 2022. Are you struggling to cope with a difficult life transition? Navigating young adulthood, becoming a parent, grieving a loss, overcoming trauma, and similarly challenging moments can test our resilience. They demand flexibility, patience, and insight just when it is most difficult to access those skills. I specialize in helping clients reduce their suffering through these transitions and flourish into the future.
The decision to enter counseling is a personal one. Many questions may come with this decision including: • How can counseling help me? • How do I find the right counselor? • What can I expect at a counseling session? • When will I start to feel better? Through supportive listening, compassionate humor, and collaboration, my goal is to help you challenge unhealthy ways of functioning, cope with life stressors, and identify what is going well. Positive recognition is key to feeling good about ourselves and helps inspire wellness and success.
Traumatic experiences can take a heavy toll, and not just in the moment. Symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or complex PTSD (CPTSD) can last for weeks, months, even years after the event. I am passionate about helping adolescents and adults heal from the effects of trauma so that you can reclaim your vitality, and establish a genuine sense of connection with yourself, others, your body and your soul. While my therapeutic approach is eclectic, Somatic Experiencing (SE) is foundational to my work. SE is a body-oriented and naturalistic approach to the resolution and healing of trauma, developed by Dr. Peter Levine.
The ideal client typically has family or interpersonal relationship conflicts and/or poor boundaries. Also, at times the ideal client has a history of childhood trauma or childhood conflicts that the client has not processed. I would process their family/interpersonal relationship conflicts and trauma/conflicts and create healthy coping skills to cope with these issues. Also, I would want to explore with the client what the client considers healthy and unhealthy boundaries and be able to create healthier boundaries in these relationships.

I help adult gay men live without fear, pain, confusion, and self-destructive behaviors. Their symptoms of depression, anxiety, trauma, shame, and self-loathing get in the way of the life they want to live. They worry I will judge them for how they are living their lives. However, they want to overcome their inner limitations, use of drugs, porn, "dating" apps, overachieving, and live a life with deeper connections, real freedom, and dignity.
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.
I provide clients with a safe and confidential space to process and manage many of life's transitions. I believe that treatment should be tailored to you and your own unique needs. Therapy can be focused on different areas of your life such as improving your mood, exploring various identities, improving your ability to manage your emotions, exploring family issues, parenting, processing interpersonal problems or just wanting to enhance your quality of life.
So many issues and roadblocks are too hard to face alone. Some can feel overwhelming. My role is to partner with you to help you find solutions and peace of mind. I have 20 years of experience as a therapist, helping people with anxiety, depression, trauma (past and present), relationship difficulties, grief and loss, cancer treatment, cancer survivorship, recovery from addiction, and more.
As a psychologist, I appreciate the opportunity to witness peoples’ capacity for not only surviving, but also thriving in today’s complicated world. My experience over the past decade has brought me to understand the many ways a therapist’s role is akin to that of a gardener tending to a lotus. Just as the young lotus needs tender care and stillness, I provide a safe, nurturing and collaborative environment. Respecting the lotus’s need for sunlight, I approach therapy with warmth, openness and humor. As a Confucian scholar once said, “I love the lotus because while growing from mud, it is unstained.”
Our mission is to create an environment that fosters growth, development and the psychological well-being of our clients. We accomplish this by providing confidential and supportive direct clinical services, education and outreach programs while upholding moral and ethical principles. We honor and respect the uniqueness of each client we meet. We understand that individual identity, family values, religious beliefs and even political beliefs deserve to be treated with the utmost respect. We believe that everyone is undergoing a human experience and the integrity of the therapeutic relationship is paramount.
Crisis have a way of revealing long running problems and often, our complacency about them. Most of us have an ability to tolerate and live with uncomfortable situations as long as we have a chance to escape or blow off steam sometimes. The pandemic took away those options and we are asked to consider what is essential to our life, on a deeply personal level, in relationships, in society at large, and globally. My goal is to help you explore this current opportunity we are presented with and to find a path forward.
If you are looking to understand yourself better and develop an honest, open relationship with your (human) therapist, I might be a good fit for you. I have helped people survive and heal from trauma, loss, and disappointment to find a greater sense of agency in their lives. My practice is informed by research and theory, but I try to use everyday, non-technical language in my work.

The ideal client is anyone who acknowledges they are open to change. As Yogi Berra famously said, "Ninety percent of this game is half mental, the other half is physical." Openness to thinking in new ways and then backing that up with new behaviors is crucial to successful change.
Welcome! Come in and breathe a sigh of relief and make yourself at home. My goal as a psychologist is create space where you feel understood and can share your problems in the context of a safe, caring environment. My approach to therapy is primarily cognitive behavioral with careful consideration of personalized, evidence-based approaches that are tailored to the unique needs of each individual. I work collaboratively with clients to problem-solve and recognize that therapy needs to be engaging, with an emphasis on experiential learning.
Life is a journey that does not always run smoothly. Sometimes we could use a little help on the way. As a psychologist, my role is to help you determine what obstacles block your path, how to navigate them in a way that is authentic to you, and provide support throughout the process. I strive to listen to your concerns in a respectful, mindful, non-judgmental manner. I welcome cases over a variety of age ranges and issues (including, but not limited to) anxiety, depression, parenting/family/workplace/social stress, and self-esteem issues.
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.
