You are much more more than a diagnosis or category! It is a challenge for us all to make meaning in a chaotic world. I work with creative people, perfectionists, harsh self-critics and existential struggles in singles, couples & groups. I have expertise in helping people recognize problematic substance use, with Harm Reduction as a philosophical approach. Cross-cultural sensitivity is a great value. I enjoy working with young and early-career adults. I enjoy learning from the people I see.

I help young, dynamic professionals and students deal with the anxiety and overwhelm that can creep up on you as you're out there doing what you always thought you were supposed to be doing. You work really hard professionally or academically but it's getting harder to hold it all together as you wrestle with the doubts and the stress. Your relationships might be feeling less than happy and fulfilling lately, or you're just plain overwhelmed. On the outside, you look like you have it all together - but that doesn't make you feel OK on the inside.

Deciding to seek out therapy may be one of the most difficult choices a person makes in a lifetime. Those individuals who ask for help with their lives when they feel most vulnerable deserve great respect and admiration. With the frightening advent of Covid-19, it may be more important now than ever to seek out help and support to, "talk about the things that really matter" in your life (Martin Luther King, 1963). My goal is to provide you with warmth, empathy, and years of my professional experience as we talk about the things that really matter to you. Together we work in a deeply genuine, person-to-person connection.

Life presents to us a consistent ebb and flow of challenges. As we navigate these, we are guided by our sense of identity, our past experiences, and the patterns we have learned. Often, however, these solutions do not serve us in the present and take the form of habits of mind and action which hold us back, shape our relationships, and create the illusion of false limitations; but there is hope. We are able to shape our lives through changing our patterns, the way we think and communicate, and the actions we learn to take. Through self understanding we may update our narrative and with it transform our realities.

It draws from these evidence-based treatments: Mindfulness, Self-Compassion, Cognitive-Behavioral, Attachment, Narrative, Psychodynamic, and Creative Therapies.
Feeling nervous or stressed is natural. When these feelings overwhelm us, we need someone to listen, to validate our concerns, and to help us get to the root of our problems with tools that will inspire hope, and help us regain control of our lives. I use Mindfulness Practices to help people sit with, and tolerate what comes up. I use Self-Compassion Practices to help soothe what ails you, and I often use CBT to organize our plan going forward. This gives you tools that you can use immediately, and strikes a fine balance between listening and responding.

Welcome. People seek psychotherapy for a variety of reasons, such as relief from anxiety, loneliness, or grief. Others feel stuck or disconnected. Perhaps patterns of unsatisfying relationships or difficulties deepening relationships have emerged. Psychotherapy provides a unique opportunity to explore personal issues in an environment of trust and respect. I appreciate the courage it takes to work through problems. Emotional pain can signal that one is called upon to make changes or understand things in a new light. I am interested in helping others express themselves more openly, feel more connected to others, and enhance capacities for making authentic choices.

As a psychodynamic therapist with extensive training in existential philosophy, I will work with you to establish a relationship that creates space in your life for movement and change.
People come to therapy for all sorts of reasons, yet a common thread unites this motivation: the desire to understand one's inner experience in an authentic way. Therapy presents an opportunity to be curious, to foster new depths of understanding, and to develop a greater sense of meaning in your life. The therapeutic relationship provides a space to explore an intuitive understanding of yourself. The core of my therapeutic work is to help people articulate deeply held longings, and to decide if and how to manifest them in the world.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in 02144, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
