I specialize in working with individuals dealing with anxiety, chronic illness , life transitions, perfectionism, and relationship dynamics.
Perhaps you are unsure of what is bothering you, but aware that something isn’t working for you anymore. Maybe you're tired of worrying all the time, feeling tension in your body, or feeling stuck in cycles of thinking about the same things. Perhaps you're supportive and patient with others, but are self-critical, high-achieving, and set unrealistic expectations of yourself. Maybe until now, you’ve been pushing yourself to cope with what you’ve been feeling on your own. If you tend to prioritize others, you may be hoping to learn how to set healthy boundaries and communicate assertively, so you can stop feeling drained and isolated.

I help individuals coping with chronic stress, including burnout and chronic illness , get “unstuck.” Living with chronic stress can feel discouraging, isolating, frustrating and overwhleming. Sometimes it feels like no one “gets it.” I work with people striving to become their best selves, whether that means overcoming burnout or lack of purpose, coping with chronic illness , or figuring out how to get from where you are now to where you want to be.

If you have been diagnosed with a chronic illness , especially an invisible illness or disability, it can be difficult navigating your new normal & finding people who understand that just because "you look ok" doesn't mean you are.
I am currently seeing clients virtually in New York, Florida and California. Don't Stay Stuck in the Yuck! Counseling and change can feel scary and overwhelming, while staying "stuck" where you are can be even more difficult. It takes time to build trust with a therapist, this can be even more difficult if you have been mandated to treatment or had a bad fit with a therapist in the past. I understand this and I want you to feel comfortable and be empowered in therapy. No matter what you have experienced in your past or what brings you to treatment, you can THRIVE!

Each person brings to therapy a unique life story that deserves to be heard in a trusting and respectful environment. We will spend the first sessions gaining an understanding of who you are and what brings you to therapy. Together, we will develop a tailored plan with realistic goals that address your specific needs and desires. We will move through the sessions at a pace that feels safe and meaningful and we will build a therapeutic collaboration that enables us to explore your thoughts and feelings with nonjudgmental curiosity and kind openness to your life experiences.

One of my areas of specialty is in working with chronic illness .
Therapy offers the opportunity to develop ways of responding more authentically and effectively to life’s challenges. I recognize that seeking therapy is in itself a sign of strength and courage, as it can seem easier to try to ignore difficult and repetitive thoughts, emotions, or experiences. I aim to create a warm and supportive space for self-exploration, helping to bring old, unconscious patterns to light and thus begin loosening the hold of self limiting beliefs. In spite of all we cannot control, in learning to relate to our experiences in new ways we can become more grounded and compassionate with ourselves and others.

Throughout this process, we will work together to identify your own unique strengths and needs. I specialize in anxiety, depression, life transitions, chronic illness and women-identifying issues.
