I specialize in helping professional women (and smart men!) of color in successfully navigating the increasingly challenging world of work. It is an understatement to say that the world of work is complex. From balancing family and intimate relationships with our professional ambitions to handling the challenges of maneuvering organizational politics and work relationships where we feel people just aren’t getting us. I get it!

I help women in their 20s and 30s let go of stress and build confidence! Together, we will work on overcoming the negative self-talk that’s getting in the way of your goals.
On the outside, it looks like you’ve got it all figured out, but beneath the surface, it's getting harder and harder to keep things together. You have dreams of the life that could be, but worry, stress, and self-criticism hold you back. You do so much for your career and your relationships, but always wonder if it’s enough. You wonder if YOU are enough. You’ve probably said to yourself, “I don’t NEED therapy, but…”, or “I should be able to deal with this on my own.” Let me assure you that whatever you’re going through, not only is it okay to ask for help, but it just may be the best step you can take toward living your best life!

Do you feel constantly stressed, burned out and generally unfulfilled by life? Maybe you’re facing pressures and expectations from family, school or work, and on top of that, experiencing self-limiting beliefs, leading to anxiety and depression. I support a wide range of clients: career-oriented, professional women who have experienced childhood trauma; young adults dealing with anxiety, depression, or adjustment issues; and anyone drawn to a body-based therapy approach integrating yoga, mindfulness, and breathwork.

Many of us look 'fine' on the outside, but inside it's more complicated than that. You may have feelings of uncertainty or insecurity, worry about some aspects of the future, or be dealing with fallout from the past. You may be struggling with challenging symptoms such as anxiousness, a sense of life dissatisfaction, or feeling 'low' much of the time. All of this is part of being a human in a complex time, and often this can be addressed by counseling. Talking and processing with another person can provide so much relief. I help by creating a safe space where you can feel free to, at your own pace, explore current challenges.

Our minds and bodies are powerful forces, which are wholly connected. Environmental factors, as well as belief and value systems are deeply rooted in how we present ourselves physically and emotionally. For many, painful life events can fracture the mind/body connection for the sake of survival. Adults may experience anxious and depressive thoughts. Relationships may see increased tension and/or codependent traits. Healing from therapeutic intervention is recognizing unhelpful “parts” and bringing love, appreciation and competency to your internal world.

My primary therapeutic focus is to help teenagers and adults to develop a stronger sense of self and to develop the coping skills they will need to address issues of anxiety, self esteem and self worth. I use a non-judgmental, trauma informed and holistic approach to help clients develop their ability to self soothe, including using body/movement and grounding techniques. I focus on both personal autonomy and understanding ourselves in relationships, with the goal of moving out of stuck feelings and thoughts to embody a more curious stance of your experiences and the world around you.

I'm glad you're here. We all feel overwhelmed or stressed, anxious, frustrated or misunderstood in our relationships at times. We may experience trauma or situations that negatively impact us or someone we love. Do you struggle with depression or anxiety? Are you having issues in your family or concerns about your child's behaviors? It can be difficult to navigate these issues on your own, and seeking therapy is often the first step towards healing and growth. I welcome the opportunity to join you as you take this step and the next; I welcome the chance to join on this journey and assist you as you navigate these or similar issues.

Feeling stuck or unfulfilled in different areas of your life? Would you like support that is professional and confidential? Unlike talking to friends and family, therapy offers a safe space where you can put words to things that are difficult to say, and confront things from your past that seem to interfere with your life in the present. Therapy can lead to deeper self-awareness and insight that can empower you to make the changes you need to live your best life. Everyone has the power to grow and heal with the right conditions and tools.

Sometimes there's a gap between what is happening and what you envision for yourself. You have a wealth of innate strengths, courage and will-power which can be enhanced in a warm, supportive relationship to support change. I am well suited to support adjusting to life transitions, enhancing relationship skills, strengthening self-compassion, self-esteem and self-growth. In order to do this work, your sense of comfort and trust comes first. I continually work to ensure that you feel understood. My training and experience are ideal for increasing coping skills if you're experiencing anxiety, grief or dissatisfaction in relationships.

I am a supportive and kink-affirming therapist and my goal is to help couples address concerns with their communication, create intimacy and connection, reignite chemistry and yes, provide sex education, because life should be pleasure-filled. I've helped countless clients become comfortable within their own skin: learning how to ask for what they want to get their needs met both in life and the bedroom too. I am an LCSW-R and I specialize in both couples counseling, behavioral intervention and sex therapy. There is nothing taboo or off limits when it comes to therapy: I want you to bring your WHOLE self when meeting with me.

My first experience with therapy, was as the client. After surviving a traumatic event, I sought help from a therapist. Therapy proved so helpful, it was then, that my passion grew. While most of my experience has been in private practice providing individual therapy, I have worked in a county mental health clinic, an inpatient psychiatric setting and a residential group home. At the core of distress, we may find some form of unresolved shame, guilt, trauma, abuse or loss. I am here to provide "a safe place" to process those hurts, while helping you increase self-awareness and gain skills to lead a more fulfilling life.

What type of Ithaca mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Ithaca?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
