Welcome! I am an EMDR-trained therapist working to help individuals navigate the transitions of early adulthood, parenting, relationships, and mental health struggles to heal from traumatic experiences and achieve their goals. I believe in the power of EMDR therapy to bring lasting change and transformation through working with clients to process and integrate past experiences, resolve current problems, and enhance future potential. In addition to EMDR, I also practice a variety of other evidence-based therapies that I have used over the past 17 years to help clients improve their overall mental health.

My passion is helping people improve their relationships and gain a deeper understanding of themselves. I enjoy working with individuals and couples who are curious about how they experience the world, and who are facing challenges with major life transitions, relationships, creativity, and gender/sexuality. I also work with other dyads, such as mothers and daughters. My approach to treatment is warm and eclectic. Therapy is a space to be curious without judgment. I hope to engage you in an exploratory process to get to the root of what has been troubling you.

It is empowering to feel heard, understood and validated, to be recognized as a well-intentioned person, family member and member of your community. I view therapy as a process in which a person explores their thoughts, feelings, beliefs and relationships. In this process they find both characteristics of resilience and strength as well as unwanted or ineffective patterns that have developed over their lifetime. When guided by a well-trained, ethical and compassionate therapist what is learned can be applied to today's problems.

My clients are postcolonial, queer, subaltern, disabled, invisibilised survivors of everyday microagressions or complex trauma. Like my clients I am polycultural, multilingual, queer and attuned to queries on acculturation, multiple social identities, identity shifting, parenting minority or neuroatypical children, intercultural couples, as well as accidental, disabling or climacteric transitions. My clients want to come to terms with their complexities — those invalidated because of primary or secondary socialisation. Exploring symbolic language allows for production of new knowledge of self and self-(re)actualisation. Paris based.

I treat a wide range of difficulties, but have specialized expertise in relationship issues of all kinds: marital, couples, parent-child, and friendship, for example. I also specialize in many aspects of behavioral medicine. My patients report feeling safe and comfortable working with me in a warm, trusting, professional environment.

To quote my patients: "Isolation STINKS" "Remote work is EH", "When will I be able to date and see my friends" If these feelings resonate, I can help you work through them and come out stronger from the experience. Concurrent with my private practice, I worked as a clinical consultant for Right Management Associates, an outplacement firm. Subsequently, I was a partner at Harris, Rothenberg Int. (HRI), a global firm that provided psychological counseling to law firms and major organizations.

I am passionate about helping people improve their well-being and regain a sense of hope. Trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I), I help clients improve sleep by exploring beliefs and circadian rhythm issues that hinder sleep. CBT-I is a powerful protocol that the American College of Physicians recognizes as the first-line treatment for adults with chronic insomnia. In addition to sleep therapy, I utilize biofeedback to train heart rate variability (HRV), which aids in regulating nervous system functioning, decreasing anxiety, enhancing emotional regulation, and improving stress management.
