I am a 2nd generation therapist specializing in working with adult professionals of all ages experiencing life transitions, anxiety and depression, chronic illness and relationship and family issues. I also have 5+ years experience working with individuals and caregivers experiencing both acute and chronic illness and with healthcare professionals. I approach therapy in an inter-relational way and use the therapeutic relationship as a lens, through which, the work will be viewed. We will work together to explore and tackle whatever you bring to the table, which I hope will feel challenging in a good way.

My goal as an integrated heath care professional is to treat the whole body; so patients can experience changes in sensation, perception, thought or behavior corresponding to his or their mental or physical health needs. My success in treating chronic illness is founded in the idea that all therapeutic relationships are a partnership of patient and clinician in restoring the body to health. The use of Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy can address a variety of physical and mental health issues in a shorter time; with longer lasting effects.

People who want to work through, and effectively manage their stress and anxiety, anger, depression, low self esteem, chronic illness , eating disorders, communication issues, life transition, workplace stress, trauma, and grief.
Hi, thank you for stopping by. Breaking unhealthy patterns of behavior. Struggling with a (recent or past) traumatic event. Working on your anger or other emotions that get in the way of achieving goals. Learning how to set boundaries. Gaining insight about yourself. Learning more effective ways to communicate at work or in your personal relationship. Can't vent to friends or family anymore. All of these are the right reasons for therapy. This is the first step towards feeling better, thinking better, working better and living better.

Whether it be the pursuit of change and growth, or difficulty coping with chronic physical, psychological, or social issues, seeking psychotherapy can be the first step towards achieving resilience, purpose, and a better quality of life. I work with individuals, families and couples to identify areas of improvement, foster change, cope with symptoms, and maintain progress. For many, a history of trauma (emotional/ physical/ sexual/ financial abuse, abandonment, bullying, domestic violence, etc) or medical difficulties (chronic/terminal illness, pain) can complicate treatment needs. Cases of grief, mood and anxiety disorders can respond differently to psychotherapy when these elements are present.

Oftentimes it can be difficult to discern what exactly we are feeling, but I find that recognizing the way emotions present themselves in our bodies can help anchor our understanding and process confusing experiences. Sometimes feelings can be so overwhelming that the idea of putting them into words feels impossible, but through therapy we can do it together. I work through a trauma-informed lens and focus on collaboratively fostering a sense of safety, empowerment, human connection, and a sense of agency.

If you find yourself saying things like, “everyone says they’re anxious but they’re still so productive, why do I feel paralyzed?” Or “laundry shouldn’t be this hard” or “I can’t believe I’ve been doom scrolling for 4 hours,” you’re definitely not alone. Maybe your house is a mess but you’re so stressed about it you can’t start cleaning. Is tolerating your partner's violations of trust becoming more confusing but establishing boundaries with them feels impossible? When you’re feeling hopeless, helpless, or just out of control, therapy can provide understanding and meaningful change for your life.

I am a firm believer that caring for our mental health positively impacts our overall health. I see therapy as a joint venture where our thoughts and life experiences can be processed in a safe, non-judgmental environment to create solutions. Everyone deserves a space to grow, learn (sometimes unlearn), and evolve no matter where they are in life. Being in therapy myself has inspired me to help others on a similar journey.

After a long and incredibly fulfilling career in oncology social work, I left the medical field choosing instead to transfer all I have learned into the more personal setting of private practice. This has allowed me the wonderful opportunity to really lean in and focus completely on the one-to-one support I had always been so passionate about but rarely had the time to pursue in the hospital. Presently my practice is fully remote.
