Have you ever wondered why other people seem to get ahead in relationships and on the job, while you feel stuck or left behind? Do you worry that you make choices that are not always in your best interest? If so, you might benefit from a brief or longer term therapy which focuses on understanding the ways in which people trip themselves up, and which offers concrete strategies for making better choices and achieving personal goals.
Once we agree on establishing a therapeutic relationship and goals, we use the interaction between you and me to understand the patterns of your behavior which hinder you from achieving your dreams and accomplishments. We recognize and understand how your behavior, thoughts and coping patterns maintain your difficulties. By assisting you in connecting to a richer spectrum of feelings and wishes towards yourself you will expand those toward the people that are important to you. Guiding you through active participation and understanding of your history, relationships with your spouse, parents and others will become more satisfying.
If you are frustrated and unhappy in your relationships, your career or within yourself, I can help you identify the internal conflicts that keep you from moving forward in life. Working together, you will gain a better understanding of who you are, where you want to go, and how to get there. I also offer targeted stress reduction strategies such as breathwork and meditation to ease anxiety and improve mental clarity.

I am a clinical psychologist with over twenty years of experience dealing with clients facing many different life challenges. If you are experiencing anxiety, feeling depressed, going through a difficult life transition or having trouble in your relationship, my strength based approach to therapy can work for you.
My belief is that therapy is a collaborative effort between client and therapist, with the therapist an active participant in the therapeutic process. My goal is to alleviate your distress, help you gain self understanding and the ability to make substantive changes in your behavior that will improve your quality of life.
I am warm, open, and informal. People feel safe and comfortable enough to trust me with their secrets, fears, and intimacies. I am aware that by the time you call a therapist, you want some relief! So, I work from the "Top Down" -- giving stress-relief, relaxation, new perspectives, and ways to help you to feel better quickly --as well as from the "Bottom Up", so you understand why you are the way you are, and how you might change what you want to...
Hypnotherapy is a proven method to help smokers become non-smokers and people who suffer from many phobias such as fear of flying or elevators become people who are unafraid. With over a decade experience using the most up-to-date and non-directive hypnotic techniques, I have an excellent track record helping people -- usually in two or three sessions.
We all need spaces in our lives to be seen and heard. There are times, however, when it can be hard to find those spaces of acceptance, non-judgment, and problem solving. I will work with you to explore and find solutions to the challenges that come with navigating the realities of our complicated lives. My approach in therapy focuses on each person's unique stories, strengths, and resilience, from a space of empathy, and concrete tools to move forward. I believe that therapy is a collaborative process that balances spaces of acceptance with change, which is based in cognitive & dialectical behavioral therapy (CBT) and (DBT).
I am a licensed clinical psychologist with a particular interest in life patterns that affect an individual's decisions in their personal life, workplace and with their own discipline. I have experience treating career difficulties, relationship patterns, perinatal mood disorders, parental issues and infertility. In addition, I treat mood disorders, anxiety and life transitional issues. Together we work on treating the problem, recognizing the effects it has on your life and working toward a different more effective experience.
I hold space for you to let go of expectations placed on you and to get closer to your most authentic and unfiltered self. This is where you rediscover parts of yourself, connect with emotions that you have buried, allow things to get a little “messy," and create meaningful change. I help clients unpack problematic patterns of behavior, manage difficult emotions, and move through pain to find relief.
My goal as a psychotherapist is to help you live a deliberate, self-actualized, and peaceful life. We all struggle with anxiety and depression at times. We push people away when we want them close, we act contrary to our best interest and don't know why. I can help illuminate patterns of behaviors and beliefs that impede your ability to reach your potential. Together, we can identify those invisible forces that drive your behavior and cause stagnation, pain, broken relationships, and missed opportunities. I take an anti-oppressive lens and provide space to explore the corrosive impact of external influences (ie: caste, race, gender)
First off, congratulations on taking a major step for yourself by seeking a therapist. It would be an honor to help you further develop your sense of self, explore the depth of what you've experienced and begin to find and celebrate the joy in your life. It is a pleasure to meet you, and i look forward to going through this process together. I have experience working with all age groups in multiple aspects of life. I worked as a therapist in multiple capacities, ranging from school settings, to a mobile crisis unit, to a substance abuse clinic. I specialize in grief and bereavement therapy.
This page used to list my degrees and credentials and was carefully crafted to be distant but warm. It was ironic because it’s not at all how I work with my clients or how I am in the world. I’m warm, yes, but I am typically the opposite of distant. I want this page to help you decide if we’ll work well together. What you probably want to know most of all is a) do I know what I’m doing and b) what inspires me to work with women experiencing motherhood stress, relationship difficulties, and anxiety.
We are collectively facing a stressful period in our lives. I have always helped people to develop new habits and routines that are healthy, and help us to decrease our everyday stressors. We are at a time when many of these routines have been taken away, and for the moment we need to create new ones. If you are struggling, or just want to clear a new path, I can help you as you go through these transitions. I think one of the hardest parts is fear, uncertainty, feeling vulnerable, or perhaps stuck. Or just outright exhausted. Lets work towards navigating the new normal, and find what works best to help you move forward.

I view treatment as a collaborative effort between client and therapist. This working relationship is an essential ingredient in the healing process.
Having an eclectic approach, I try to fit the treatment to the needs of the patient. I draw from interpersonal, psychoanalytic, cognitive-behavioral and family systems ideas in conceptual-
izing and addressing the problems at hand. It is extremely rewarding for me
to assist clients in recognizing and freeing up their potential.
I'm currently accepting new clients in my private practice. I am keen on keeping my practice small to ensure you receive attentive care and an in-depth psychotherapy experience. A bit about me, I help clients actualize their full potential by addressing stress, anxiety, mood, or adjustment difficulties. I'm guided by evidence-based strategies, with an aim for a collaborative approach in the therapeutic relationship. If you find yourself having difficulty adjusting to current stressors, I can provide a free telephone consultation. I aim to respond to your request within 24 hours.
I believe that everyone has the ability to grow and achieve their goals. Sometimes it's harder than others. I work with people who want to cultivate real change in their lives, whether that's learning to manage depression or anxiety, getting along better with other people or their partners, or helping them accomplish that career goal they desire. I believe that establishing a good connection with my clients and creating manageable and growth-oriented goals can lead to lasting positive change.
Sometimes it is difficult to adjust to or make sense of what is happening in your life and how you feel. It is often moments or seasons of change that make us feel alone, overwhelmed, hopeless, or numb to trauma and chronic stress, but these can be transformed into positive change. My main goal is to help you make sense of or minimize these feelings and identify and remove barriers to living a fulfilling life.
