I completed an extensive post-graduate training program at the Ackerman Institute for the Family and have over 8 years of experience working in hospital and school-based settings, helping individuals and families navigating chronic illness, adjustment disorders, anxiety, depression, and difficult family relationships.
As a therapist I create a safe and non-judgmental space where you will feel validated and supported. From a collaborative and strength-based approach, I am passionate about working with individuals, couples, and families to enrich and deepen their connections to those who matter most. I focus on resolving issues related to breakdowns in communication and life transitions including marriage, separation, illness, loss, pregnancy and the birth of a child. I believe that through therapy, ruptures can be repaired, and couples and families can navigate tumultuous times with greater ease and grace.

I practice Supportive Psychotherapy, Family Systems Therapy, CBT, and DBT.
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)

The work deepens when we focus on insight into your family and your patterns of relating and how those inform your current thoughts and actions.
My goal is for my patients to find relief from their pain and gain a better understanding of who they are. Examining perceptions and patterns can help people to understand what is not working in their lives and can lead to sustainable change. Therapy offers the opportunity to resolve relationship issues, manage chronic anxiety and depression, work through trauma, sort out painful experiences like divorce and infertility, and examine questions of identity and fulfillment. It is essential that the patient feel their therapist truly understands them. I am happy to help you find the right therapist, whether me or someone else.

My training at the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy, in couples and family therapy , provides the foundation for my work with both individuals and couples.
These are not easy times and so many of us are feeling anxious and overwhelmed. You may be feeling isolated, disconnected in your relationships, or struggling in your career. Through it all, connection is what grounds us, and therapy is based on connection. Let’s figure out together where you are stuck, where you've lost your way, and what gets in the way of warmth and closeness with the people who matter to you the most. During our time together, I will be present in an actively collaborative way as we figure out how to clear a path to the life you want.

I am available as a well-trained clinical therapist to work with you on difficult life issues and managing problematic transitions. You are likely overthinking/overanalyzing situations without finding any satisfying resolutions to your problems. When too many unresolved issues related to feeling frustrated, disappointed and stuck leads to emotional suffering, it is time to consider working with a therapist. My approach to therapy is to help you reflect on your current issues which is sometimes (but not always) linked to unresolved childhood family issues. The past can have an unwanted impact over ones' life as functioning adults.

There is no ideal client. Each client is a unique subject who has been shaped by an infinitely complex set of circumstances; family , culture and inherited predispositions. The one thing that they have in common is that somehow there is a sense that things are somehow not right and yet still entertain a suspicion that things can improve. Working in an open, honest and interactive way, marked by curiosity, compassion and courage we will work together to discover patterns and styles that hinder the experience of joy, intimacy and achievement. Together we will work to overcome the crisis of debilitating guilt, anxiety and depression.

I believe that through talking about feelings, clients can identify their obstacles to change and develop a better understanding of themselves.

Family Therapy

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
