I enjoy helping hardworking women recover from trauma by providing the tools they need to enhance their self-esteem, improve their mood, reduce anxiety and maintain healthy boundaries in their relationships. Negative past experiences can leave you feeling guilty, ashamed, depressed and anxious. This can also leads to poor decision making at work, with our friends and even our intimate relationships. Your past does not have to define who you are or where you are headed in life. You can gain control, feel free again and live a joyful fulfilled life.

I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with experience treating adolescents and adults in a myriad of settings. In these roles, I've provided individualized therapy to support with relationship, academic, and interpersonal issues, among others. I've also done extensive social justice work with young women . In my practice, the relationship is the main healing agent in a therapeutic dynamic. I've found that clients seek largely to feel seen and heard, and that my role is to co-create a safe space for them to grow. I'm guided by the E. Dickinson quote, "I felt it shelter to speak to you."

I am a doctoral candidate in counseling psychology and my clinical training is in treating Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), perfectionism, or anxiety; my goal is to help my client understand the role of cultural influences on perfectionism, and to help them gain freedom from OCD and/or perfectionistic thought patterns. I provide evidenced-based therapy that is tailored to the individual needs of my clients, while using a multiculturally-informed approach.

I have a particular interest and expertise in working with women of color in exploring intersections of race and gender.
I believe it’s a privilege to be part of a process that helps clients identify strategies that can lead to a more fulfilling life and uncover a greater sense of freedom and agency. I believe that therapy must involve exploring and integrating clients’ cultural context and identities in understanding their lived experiences and addressing their concerns. I have extensive experience working collaboratively with clients of diverse backgrounds to identify goals of treatment and explore meaningful, culturally relevant, psychodynamic and other innovative evidence-based interventions.

Do you struggle with stagnation in your relationship, career, or life in general? Do you feel held back by self-doubt, feelings of inadequacy or perfectionism? I am an LCSW specializing in the facilitation of the Daring Way(tm), a psychoeducational curriculum based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown. The method was developed to help men, women and adolescents learn how to show up, be seen, and live braver lives. This highly experiential and interactive curriculum functions as a pathway to cultivating self-compassion, embracing vulnerability, developing shame-resilience, identifying our values, and living wholeheartedly.

I particularly welcome women who are dealing with challenges related to pregnancy or postpartum and parenting issues.
Whether you're feeling depressed, anxious, hopeless, or lost, making that first call for help can often be hard. You desperately want to feel better, but you may be afraid of what it will be like to share your thoughts with a therapist. I understand. My guiding principles are respect, appreciation of differences, and a balance between acceptance and change. I listen carefully and center the therapy around your needs. Through a truly mutual collaboration, we can find ways to solve problems and create healing.

The women with whom I work are able to talk to a therapist who is very knowledgeable about fertility, the choices that need to be made and the range of emotions that accompanies this journey to motherhood.
Are you struggling with issues related to infertility? Have you had pregnancy losses? Are you tired of the waiting and all of the appointments? I work with women in all parts of their fertility journey (from the beginning of learning about challenges and options, those going through treatments, those recovering from loss and more). Fertility struggles can cause a range of negative emotions and issues such as anxiety, anger, grief, guilt, blame, uncertainty and many more. Your mind has such a great impact on your body and your fertility. I love providing support and emotional tools for women going through their fertility journey.

I work with adults who want to live happier and more connected lives. Clients see me to alleviate anxiety and depression, navigate relationships, and adjust to transitions. As a former executive with an MBA, I have a particular interest in supporting women through career or relationship transitions, and guiding the balance of personal responsibilities. I see therapy not as a lifelong commitment but a helpful tool to develop insight through a collaborative, empathic, and supportive process. Clients leave energized and able to articulate, clarify, and achieve their goals.

I am trained in both Perinatal Mental Health, which is used to support pregnant women and new mothers, and Child-Parent Psychotherapy, used to support children 0-5 and their caretaker(s) when the child has experienced trauma.
Are you suffering after a life-altering event? Are you pregnant or a new mom? Has your child been dysregulated since the pandemic started? I offer a safe and supportive space for you or your child to address recovery from the impact of trauma, depression, anxiety, relationship struggles, and other common issues, as well as guidance with executive functioning skills. I will help you examine how your framework, through which you make decisions and form opinions, shapes your response to challenges. We will collaborate to discover what led to the formation of your framework and how to use that information to make beneficial decisions.

I work closely with men and women facing various challenges, including how to deal with grief, a complicated relationship, family, work, and societal problems.
You know how sometimes we examine our situation and wonder how it is that we got here? There's so much going on in the world today. In examining our current state we can experience a mixture of emotions: fear, frustration, and a longing for something different. This is normal. However, sometimes these feelings can become more overwhelming than we would like, and they begin to affect us in different areas of our life such as work, family, and relationships.

I work with men and women facing a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, and trauma.
Effective therapy requires all of the obvious things: an open mind, hard work, and a gradually developing relationship with a trusted therapist. But with these ingredients in place, therapy can be a transformative experience like no other: one that yields a rich capacity for self-understanding, acceptance, and the ability to connect more intimately with the people that you love.
