My strengths include working with individuals struggling with relationship concerns, issues of young adulthood, new parenthood, peripartum and postpartum mood disorders, survivors of sexual abuse, eating disorders and issues of grief and loss.
I am a strength-based therapist with a warm, nonjudgmental and direct approach. Championing evidence based practices such as cognitive behavioral and interpersonal therapy, I utilize these modalities to help you evaluate and work through maladaptive thought patterns and behaviors that are keeping you "stuck" in your present situation. I will work collaboratively with you to create a culturally sensitive and uniquely tailored treatment plan. I am honored and humbled by the trust my clients put in me. The therapeutic relationship is a privilege and I approach all my clients with curiosity, compassion and empathy.

For a decade I've been working collaboratively with clients, developing ways to cope with and move through depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship and parenting issues, as well as providing emotional support to individuals and couples facing reproductive health issues, including infertility and perinatal mood and anxiety disorders.
At some point in our lives each of us faces obstacles or barriers we can't seem to overcome on our own. It's part of the human condition. Fortunately, professional counseling and psychotherapy can help you develop ways of moving forward through the places where you feel stuck. The empathic, and non-judgmental therapeutic relationship I offer can help you discover, or rediscover, your own strengths to heal, thrive, and create the relationships and life you desire.

We all have strategies for dealing with stress day-to-day. But over time, many strategies can fall short or even backfire. We may find ourselves withdrawing and avoiding certain aspects of our lives, or overextending and pushing ourselves to the point of exhaustion. This can leave us feeling anxious, depressed, and irritable and can also take a toll on our relationships and physical health. One of my goals as a therapist is to help you identify changes you can make, both big and small, and tap into your motivation to follow-through on those changes.

Becoming a parent is a unique and transformative experience. From the moment of conception through the journey of parenting there is an array of unknown rewards, challenges and experiences. At times parents have no idea how they will feel or react to these challenges and realize that they need help and support through their own journey as parents. Research proves the way we were parented, the environment in which we developed, and the situations around us influence the way we feel and behave as parents.

In addition, I am interested in helping those who are going through life transitions and existential issues. Many of the people I work with want to understand themselves at a deeper level, transform their limiting beliefs, reduce anxiety and depression, seek more meaning in life, and become better versions of themselves. They no longer want to suffer - they want to be empowered, self-confident, and at peace.

As a Client-Centered clinician I plan to meet you in the here and now and help get you to where you want to be in a holistically happy and healthy manner. We all could use a bit of guidance, and at times, a push in the right direction.
