Whatever feels “off” in your life—depression, unhealthy boundaries, a dead-end career, anxiety, loneliness, low self-esteem—is a symptom of a larger problem: an unbalanced and under-appreciated Self. Just like a fever lets us know we have an infection, life problems let us know something deep within us isn’t right. We don’t blame the fever, we thank it for alerting us to the bigger problem. Using life’s challenges as a guide, we work together to build the foundation of self you need in order to live an enriching and fully human life. This deep work benefits not only yourself but also your loved ones and the rest of our human family.
I am licensed in New York as a Marriage and Family Therapist, I hold an MFA in Creative Writing and have certifications in Transformational Life Coaching and Clinical Hypnotherapy. I received shamanic training from the Foundation for Shamanic Studies. My background includes a long career in writing and acting, which informs my work with creative clients.
Don't want to get locked into long-term therapy? I offer single sessions of 30- and 50-minute lengths so that you can receive the benefit of therapy at your own pace. Reach out for a free phone consultation or book your single session on the Work With Me page on the website. Note: I am an out-of-network provider in NY; I provide you with superbills/invoices.

By living life as our true selves, we contribute awakened energy to collective consciousness. Think of the concept of manifestation. Rather than putting out vibes that align with what we want from life, living as our true selves manifests the world we want to live in.
