I know asking for help can be hard, especially if you identify as Black, Brown, or Immigrant. Your decision to seek help from a Therapist is a sign of courage and self-awareness, not weakness. If you are feeling "stuck" or constantly fear the worse thing happening, have experienced or witnessed traumatic events, or having difficulty in a romantic or professional relationship, I can help. Our therapeutic relationship will help you gain awareness for life events and generational patterns that are influencing present day concerns. You will also develop new coping skills to feel more at peace and confident in your daily life.

If you want to feel less anxiety, or reduce OCD symptoms, I can help. One of my specializations is helping people to feel calmer and less reactive. Some of my clients feel a general free floating anxiety. Others struggle with OCD or a phobia. We will use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Exposure and Response Prevention, or mindfulness to reduce these fears and help you to feel more in control.

Because you will be putting a good deal of time, money, and energy into therapy, you should choose a therapist carefully. I believe you should feel comfortable with the therapist you choose, and hopeful about the therapy process. When you feel this way, therapy is more likely to be helpful to you. I have more than 20 years helping people work through grief and loss, life transitions, relationship struggles, career indecision, anxiety and depression. In addition, I have considerable experience helping individuals struggling with issues related to sexual orientation and gender identity.

Let me be your guide and we can hit the ground running. As the founder of Be Well Therapy Group, I am usually the therapist that my clients seek out after they have already seen one or two others whom they didn't click with. I won’t make you feel like there is something wrong with you, I won’t shame you, and I won’t expect you to know all the answers. I will be passionate, open, and honest with you, and you’ll quickly turn into the author for your own successful story.

My goal is to allow client to openly address their levels of fear, depression and issues relating to their disorder. Many factors from past encounters result in high levels of depression and mental health conditions. My goal is to allow my client to address these fears and use my services as a three stage process to function independently with the least amount of medication and therapeutic interventions as possible. My overall goal is to address condition using alternative therapeutic problem solving interventions, while at the same time helping them to make changes based on their current condition. Phone session is free!!!

Therapy is an invaluable opportunity for individuals and couples to learn about themselves and the relationships that they want to cultivate. Whether you are thinking about working through a particular issue, hoping to gain clarity and focus in future decisions, or considering a short-term "check-up", I will work with you in a safe, non-judgmental space that cultivates compassion, healing, and growth. I believe in the power of building on each person/couple's strengths and discovering, through a collaborative approach, new ways to adapt and grow.

Welcome! Congratulations on taking the first step on this adventure. I know finding the right therapist can be hard and a grueling process. For many clients this is the first time they have asked for help. I am passionate about creating a space for clients that is safe, freeing & nonjudgmental. I hope to do this through my multicultural background, interest in the client's perspective and the therapeutic relationship built. I operate from a systems & contextual framework where I believe clients are stuck, not sick. I work with clients to create goals and plans that are collaborative and empowering.

Identifying a need for support and reaching out for help can feel vulnerable. In my practice, I foster a safe and nurturing environment to support your journey of self-exploration and healing. I see myself as a partner in your process. My style is warm and compassionate and I employ an integrative, collaborative and creative approach to therapy. I carefully attend to how our social location in the world and intersecting identities influence individual experience. We will begin by building an authentic relationship and co-creating a direction that fits your individual, therapeutic needs.

I believe that we all struggle with trauma, and most mental health challenges stem from how one adapts to these experiences. I specialize in working with trauma, identifying how it is held in the body, the strategies we uphold as defense mechanisms, and how to negotiate with our inner self to move toward a healthy healing of mind and body. Coming from either a top down approach for those thinker types, or a bottom up approach for those feeler types, we will compassionately reconnect the mind and body, in order to achieve relief and greater connectivity to self and others.

Making the decision to enter therapy can be stressful. Allow me to join and help you. I believe people are born to thrive. However, there are times our emotional suffering (stress, anger, depression, or anxiety) make us feel stuck. Just like the warning signs on the dashboard, our emotions inform us when there are things in life need our attention. It can be things within ourselves (such as, self-confidence or self-expectations) or things happened to us (such as, trauma or loss). My work is to give attention to where it is needed.

I will listen carefully to your description of what is causing you the most stress and we will arrive at a plan together for how to help you. I am well trained in multiple theories and methods for helping people to feel better and act in ways that they prefer to act. I am respectful and empathetic and one of my primary goals is help you to feel hope that you will get through even the hardest experiences. I have seen how much a good therapeutic relationship can help to restore that hope and to expand your options for coping and for changing.

I believe that the work of therapy needs to be done in an atmosphere of safety, intelligence, warmth and humor. Therapy is often hard work because it takes so much commitment for us to look at ourselves objectively and work through challenging issues in our lives. Sometimes we come to therapy because there is a specific situation that we need immediate and/or brief assistance with or for an objective voice of reason. Sometimes we come to therapy because there have been challenges over time that have gotten in our way of getting what we want out of our lives.

Covid-19: Meet by Zoom or in person. For over 30 years, I have offered attentive and thoughtful psychotherapy and psychoanalysis in a comfortable home office with a private waiting area. My style has been described as welcoming, engaging, flexible and "serious yet playful". I work with a wide range of problems: work and relationships struggles, depression, anxiety, insomnia, alcohol abuse, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, personality disorders and many other matters people bring up. I am slow to recommend medication, but work in concert with a number of psychiatrists should either of us believe medication might be beneficial.
