You deserve to be heard and seen fully. Whether you’re going through a transitional period, craving support while caring for others, or seeking less stress and a more harmonious, balanced life—I’m here to listen, and hold the space you need. You’ve always been the person others turn to for support. Now, it’s time to rediscover your own voice and redefine your own priorities. I’ll be here to help you find the courage to commit to both. You deserve a therapist who earns your trust and works hard to understand you. I believe that therapy should have long-term impact—helping you create meaningful, lasting change in your life.

I have experience working with adults of all ages. I especially empathize with college students, international students and immigrants. Coming to the United States is a big transition and it could come with feelings of loneliness and lack of motivation. But you don't have to be alone going through this transition. We can go through it together. I want to help you learn and maintain healthy coping skills, identify the support systems and foster healthy relationships.

I am committed to working with young adults who are experiencing grief, trauma, anxiety, and family issues to heal and move towards greatness. My Masters in Counseling and Mental Health from University of Pennsylvania has helped me provide young adults in the state with therapeutic interventions, life skills training and crisis management/prevention for many different reasons. At a time when young adults are experiencing high amounts of distress, stress and pain in all areas, I seek to be a supportive & safe place of healing without judgment and with relatable honesty, despite our unsafe city.

The decision to seek treatment and find the right therapist can be anxiety inducing. In fact, many times the journey stops here for those who might not be ready to take the next step. I know that being vulnerable with a stranger is uncomfortable and may be difficult when first beginning your therapeutic journey. However, my hope is that I can assist you in taking small steps towards building a trusting relationship together and reaching your therapeutic goals. Together, we can reflect upon what you’re needing from yourself, your relationships, and your environment and what changes can be made to enhance your overall quality of life.

We have the capacity to express ourselves beyond just talking about our experiences and feelings. It is in our innate nature to access other ways of processing that utilizes art as a language. Cambridge Dictionary defines "art"- a noun synonymous with expression, as: "the making of objects, images, music, etc. that are beautiful or that express feelings". Still Emerging Expressive Arts Therapy offers an unconventional approach to therapeutic work, utilizing various forms of expression, including: visual art, movement, writing and sound. No skill is necessary, just a deep longing and desire to express yourself free of judgment.

I believe a good match between therapist and client is a large part of what makes therapy work. I have a caring, gentle approach and I focus on building strengths and addressing past traumas. EMDR is one of the modalities I find effective in helping clients to deepen their insight and healing. I tend to tailor treatment to address what the client is struggling most with, whether that is symptoms, interpersonal issues, or past traumatic events. I also specialize in helping clients address food addiction issues in a way that is effective and non-blaming.
