Many of us worry that we'll never be found by the world or by another person in the way that we want to be. There is a word for this: loneliness, and I believe it's at the root of addiction, depression, stress, anxiety, and our struggle to feel that we matter. In my first year of training, for example, I worked with refugees and other forced migrants; every area of their lives was impacted by their unmooring. But we are all owed a sense of mattering, and we deserve to feel that we belong.

Therapy can be the turning point in your life—allowing you to confront your challenges and unconscious habits in order to more mindfully choose your behaviors, relationships, and life path. As a psychotherapist, I work to help my clients find fulfillment, serenity, confidence, and true happiness. I accompany individuals and couples through a process of examining who they are, how they came to be, and where they ultimately want to go. I collaborate with clients to heal issues such as anxiety, depression, addiction, eating disorders, and trauma.

When life presents us with challenges - illness, transitions, trauma - it can be difficult to process our suffering and overwhelming emotions. If you have been feeling discouraged, depressed, or anxious, you are not alone. My aim as a therapist is to create a space in which we navigate through these challenges together to facilitate healing and growth. I am attuned to the fact that all people are unique and invite clients of all races, nationalities, gender identities, sexual orientations, abilities and body sizes.

I strive to create a welcoming and supportive environment that will allow clients to comfortably explore patterns in their behavior, thoughts and relationships that may be causing pain or creating blockages. Many of us have a story that we tell ourselves that explains how we have developed into the person that we are today, but often these narratives may be inaccurate and may be preventing growth or prolonging suffering. I believe that therapy provides a non-judgmental place to interrogate these narratives and gain insight into how these beliefs might impacting our lives.

What do you want out of life? What is it that fuels you and provides you with joy? When struggling with depression or self-criticism, a life of meaning can seem out of reach. We are disconnected from that which we truly want and desire. It becomes hard to find motivation and even harder to remain motivated. Fear, doubt, and dread can overwhelm our sense of self. Even if we have some idea of what we want, we feel stymied from moving forward and creating a fuller and richer life for ourselves. If you are feeling stuck, I want to help you connect and reclaim your passion for life.

My aim as a therapist is to get to know you and your unique personality and to facilitate a space where you can authentically show up to discuss your feelings and desires. Circumstances in life can be distressing and isolating, but you do not have to navigate that alone. I believe exploring these feelings and experiences in depth can provide a clearer understanding of oneself and the ability to navigate such stressors.

Transitions are triggers, and when you are in the midst of a major life transition, it is easy to lose yourself when so much is going on around you. How do you cope when others are asking for so much from you? How can you make space for your own needs when you might not even be sure what they are? Even small tasks can feel burdensome if you are struggling to find a sense of inner peace.

Often, despite knowing what they "should" or "could" do to achieve personal growth, people feel stuck in similar patterns. Others feel lost or that they have not experienced contentment. So many of life's challenges evoke painful feelings, including sadness, fear, anxiety, frustration and isolation. I see therapy as a space where I can help my patients understand those feelings and how they relate to their personal, familial and cultural narratives. With that in hand, patients gain freedom in how they choose to navigate the world.

It is easy to forget that each person is an individual in the complex world we live in. It is common for humans to struggle with their individuality, identity, and finding themselves or their life’s purpose. This struggle can leave you feeling confused, isolated, anxious, overwhelmed, disconnected, or lost. I view therapy as a way to connect by providing patients with a supportive, safe, non-judgemental space to explore and confront these feelings. I accept patients for who they are, where they are at, and how they live their lives.

Therapy is an opportunity for growth and introspection. It is a way to learn how external and internal worlds intertwine to produce thoughts and behaviors that are either already conducive to a healthy, productive life—or could be improved upon. You don’t have to be in a crisis to come to therapy. Preventative care is just as important. My aim is to support you as you navigate the challenges life throws at you including fear and anxiety, interpersonal relationship discord, stresses of professional life, and unresolved conflict from childhood.

My practice is for those who are looking for a safe and affirming space to search for solutions to life’s challenges. To me, there can never be a one-size-fits-all approach to humans, and therapy should be uniquely tailored to individual history, needs, and goals. Together, we will take a closer look at the interplay of forces and experiences that shaped your sense of self. We will look for the root causes of your challenges, untangle lasting negative patterns and zero in on your unique strengths. Together, we can tackle the feelings of worthlessness, disconnection, loneliness, guilt, and grief.

Today, life often presents us with an unsettling tension between overwhelming uncertainty or loss, and a relentless demand to be productive, happy, and to have a strong sense of identity or purpose. Whether one is exploring psychotherapy due to crisis, impasse, troubling symptoms, or relational concerns, all people can benefit from a space where they can make meaning of their experiences and thoughts in a collaborative way. Though psychodynamic treatment requires vulnerability and curiosity, it is an opportunity for transformative self-exploration and healing that will be contained in a space of attentive listening and care.

Life is full of abundant opportunities that are within your reach. However, there are times when it can feel as though you are watching the world go by from a passenger seat - perhaps you find yourself not acting in your own self-interest or are overloaded by the noise of a cluttered mind. In these moments, it can feel challenging to regain a sense of self and select the most fulfilling path forward. I invite you to co-create a space of holistic healing that fosters self-exploration, allowing you to feel more at home in your mind and body, and continue forward from a place of authenticity and empowerment.

I like to think that life is like writing a story. There are times where you know exactly what direction you want to take the story; the path seems so clear. Other times, you sit there for hours with nothing to write at all. The path becomes blurry and you might even forget how to take the next step. My goal as a therapist is to help you clear the path of all the blurriness. You deserve to live the life that you desire, and it’s very common to run into obstacles that make the journey difficult or discouraging. I help clients get unstuck and move forward, allowing for a newfound freedom to find enjoyment and meaning in daily life.

Being a person is hard. The pain and difficulty of life just pile up, obscuring the joy and connectivity we might once have felt. Maybe it’s been so long since we were excited about life that we’ve forgotten what that’s like; to wake up curious and engaged with the mystery of our own existence. But let’s be honest: there’s a lot of pain and suffering in this world. And so much of it is beyond our ability to control. Here’s the good news: you and me and everyone we know – we’re not the first to feel like this. And there are ways to feel better. My goal is simple: to share with you what was once shared with me. Therapy that works.
