For people who have experienced anxiety, persistent stress or trauma— one of the greatest fears is feeling helpless to a pattern that keeps repeating itself over and over. In our painful search for relief, we might feel lonely and disconnected from friends/family. In the process, we might wear a “mask” to please others. The moments of self-doubt can leave us uncertain about our authentic voice and question whether we can truly trust ourselves. You deserve to feel acceptance and security within yourself. I believe our work together can help you move towards a life of meaningful healing and growth.

I draw from relational, psychodynamic and trauma-informed approaches and am guided by an understanding that early pivotal relationships and experiences shape our narrative about ourselves.
At times our life-circumstances can create such overwhelm, isolation, confusion and pain that we struggle to make sense of or to overcome them on our own. Having the support and understanding of a warm, collaborative therapist can help you face and work through difficult issues as you move into resilience, balance and a strengthened identity. As a psychotherapist in practice for over ten years, I am guided by the belief that, at our core, we each want to be known, understood and respected by others. I strive to help clients build new insights and perspectives about their lives and to restore their connections to their true selves.

The experience of trauma and loss changes your entire world view. Tomorrow no longer seems promised or predictable. The past is no longer just the past; at times, the past feels like the present. The fragility of life and closeness of death is now undeniable. What seemed important to you has changed entirely. Meanwhile, others around you are focused on things that seem petty and material, as they plan for a future they assume is certain. As a result, connecting with others becomes difficult and you can find yourself alone. You can feel like you are an alien on the planet you used to call home.

My intention is to provide trauma-informed, culturally sensitive care that is mindful of the role of privilege/power within the therapeutic relationship.
Currently accepting new clients. Are you seeking a deeper understanding and acceptance of yourself? Do you need support but worry about “bothering” others with your concerns? Do you want to take back control from the problems you feel are ruling your life? These things are achievable when therapy includes the two most important aspects of successful treatment: hope and an authentic connection with an empathetic therapist who sees, accepts and validates the true you. I work with both individuals and couples, doing both standard psychotherapy and EMDR. I am now licensed to help individuals in PA, NJ, DE and FL.

PTSD and the consequent symptoms are my specialties.
We move through institutions of power our entire lives. First, family, then we form friends at school, fall in love in college, maybe grow close to others in religious communities. Along the way, we encounter experiences that enable us to become more of our authentic selves. Sometimes, these experiences are less than ideal, other times, these experiences are more traumatizing than we originally thought. Depression, anxiety, insomnia, are a few things that manifest and these are the PTSD-related symptoms that I specialize in.

I specialize in treating childhood trauma, chronic pain, adult children of alcoholics (ACOAs), post-traumatic stress disorder, and codependency.
With over a decade of experience in the mental health field I have worked with clients from all walks of life. While everyone is unique in their struggles, I believe that most suffering can be alleviated by addressing root causes such as early childhood traumas, nervous system dysfunction, and family of origin wounding.

I work from the understanding there is a part of us that is already whole and healed. Trauma can skew how we perceive ourselves and the world. Through therapy, we both tend to the hurt parts of ourselves and also cultivate an access point to the whole, healed self. We practice ushering our habitual emotional and mental patterns into our awareness in order to remove blockages to allow us to be the person we’d love to be and to live the life we’d love to live.
