The stigma behind psychotherapy is based on the notion that somehow asking for help and working with a professional means that one is weak. Ironically, this could not be further from the truth. Making the decision to look at your story and explore how patterns within it have impacted your goals, relationships, losses, parenting, work and outlook is profoundly difficult to do. It is looking at ourselves with the commitment to not look away until we have developed tools to build futures that give us joy and magnify our strengths. All while now knowing how to address our challenges more effectively.

I also have a special interest in working with college/graduate students and women, particularly in helping manage self-doubt, boundaries, career planning/decisions, and parenting.
My therapy style is warm, down-to-earth, and collaborative, with a little humor sprinkled in. I see therapy as a space where you should feel accepted, supported, and empowered to make changes. I use insight, strength-based approaches to help you gain a deeper understanding of your past and how it impacts your present relationships, both with yourself and others. Once we understand the origin of your problems, I can help you make more informed choices to create long-lasting solutions. Our work will help deepen your self-awareness, increase your resilience, improve your relationships, and enhance your overall fulfillment.

If only life were as easy as scrolling through counselor profiles. Let me help you bring healing and understanding to life's difficulties so you can move past them and into a better mind space. I am experienced in all areas of mental health, but I am highly effective in treating stress, anxiety, and depression. In addition to working with those experiencing difficult life transitions such as loss and divorce, I also enjoy working with women's issues such as infertility, postpartum conditions, parenting issues, and adjustments dealing with weight loss.

My current focus areas include life transitions, immigration, intercultural relationships, parenting, substance use, and the mental health of university students.
As a psychoanalyst with eleven years of clinical experience, I can work with you to analyze your life experiences and the unconscious determinations that may be keeping you stuck in some ideas and negative affects. An important aspect of my practice is creating a safe space where you can express yourself freely and work through your thoughts and feelings, while I actively listen, ask questions, and dialogue with you until unheard possibilities arise. Psychoanalysis shows us that words carry the extraordinary power to change not only symptoms but also bodies and perspectives.
