About

Welcome! Therapy should be practical and approachable. As a relationship specialist, my collaborative focus is on the "why" of where you are. When we understand why, we can navigate the hurdles getting in your way with insight and healthy coping skills that are effective. You will not be alone in this; we will be working together on expanding awareness of your thoughts, feelings and ways that you engage with the world. This process opens up space for healthier, more intentional relationships that you can actually enjoy (including the one with yourself)! At the core of my practice is an authentic, warm and compassionate presence.
I draw from our needs for basic human connection through paying close attention to emotional safety. I work with individuals and couples and specialize in relationships, anxiety, maternal mental health, cultural identity/generation gaps, boundary setting, and grief. I am passionate about bringing mindful awareness into healing.
Life is a balance of holding on and letting go. I am here to walk with you to a clearer, fulfilled version of yourself both individually and in relationships. I pride myself on creating a safe, challenging and non-judgemental space for the delicate work of achieving your individual and relationship goals. Additional languages include Farsi and Spanish.
