I see people as having rich, complex human emotions that are not well described with overly simple and often stigmatizing diagnostic labels like depression or generalized anxiety. Each person is entirely unique, with their own history, strengths, and challenges. In therapy, I will work with you to better understand yourself. When we can understand why you might be feeling or thinking or acting in a way that is not best for you, we can work together to change it in a way that is tailored to your needs and your circumstances.

I practice Mindfulness and Somatic based Cognitive Therapy to help treat Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, Relationship, and life's woes. Together we will understand what causes your suffering and create change. Our traumas, difficult relationships, COVID, loss, and heartache, can all be confusing and debilitating and influence us to live patterns of suffering through our behaviors, beliefs, habitual thinking and life circumstances. By discovering and practicing new behaviors you will learn how to relate to your thoughts, emotions, and body in a manner that allows you to live the life that you want to be living.

I believe the most difficult thing is often accepting all of ourselves and our experiences. When we reject ourselves, this can lead to feelings of not being good enough, feeling inadequate, comparing ourselves to others and coming up short, feeling anxious, depressed, and ashamed of oneself. These feelings can lead someone to become a perfectionist, an overachiever, attempt to make their body into the ideal shape/weight, or escape painful feelings through alcohol, drugs, food, or other means.

If you are reading this now, you may be struggling with feelings or experiences that have become hard to bear and even understand. You may feel alone and as though no one seems to really get what you are going through. It may be some immediate situation or transition in life that feels extra hard to navigate, or some long-standing grief or pattern in relationships that seems to have a hold on you. You may have symptoms such as anxiety or depression, perhaps with less than optimal means of coping. Psychotherapy can help you understand and change.

We engage in a collaborative process that allows for investigation into why patients feel the way they do and what factors have influenced their development into who they are and how they experience life. In doing so, they are often able to feel better about themselves, their relationships, and their place in the world.

Constantly coping with trauma, stress, isolation, grief, or substance abuse can make you feel like you are living in "survival mode." Therapy can help you find your way back to the life you want to be living. If you've reached this page, that means you're considering making a change - to better understand yourself, improve your relationships, create new habits, or rediscover your passions. This work can only occur when you feel comfortable and safe with your therapist. That is why I prioritize collaborative, culturally responsive, and patient-centered care.

You may long to live wholeheartedly - and to feel loved and connected - but struggle with anger, depression, loneliness, or inexplicable sadness and anxiety. You may find the stress of work, life, running a household, or parenting has diminished your capacity to feel joy and be creative. Once a source of comfort and pleasure, your intimate relationship may now be disappointing, frustrating, or even deadening. Therapy can help relieve the symptoms of debilitating feelings by uncovering the underlying (and sometimes unconscious) causes, and empower individuals - and couples - to become the authors of the lives they want to live.

Therapy should not and cannot be "one size fits all." It should be rooted in a consistent, deep effort to understand who you are and what you need, in relation to the resources you have near you. Therapy should also be practical and offer some fairly immediate results, even though bigger change takes time. It's ultimately about collaboration, and the formation of a helpful relationship. Although I have 25 years of clinical experience to bring to our work, it is more important that you feel we have a good match as we enter this work together. I trust that after we talk, you'll know whether it seems like the right match.

I draw on the immense resources of the body-- its rich wisdom to support the cultivation of mindful presence, internal resource, gentle self inquiry/guidance and embodiment. Creating space for you to listen to your voice and inner experience allows for both depth and breath of understanding, as well as authentic expression and acceptance.

Hello, I am an immigrant from India, having studied and worked in both countries. I have worked with adolescents in schools, and with adults in outpatient units. My current practice is primarily with adults (individual, couples therapy). My best work has been with clients coping with depression, anxiety and working through the impact of past trauma. It has been humbling and enriching to be allowed into the inner worlds of my clients and I remain in awe of the resilience of the human spirit. Research shows a genuine therapeutic bond is important and I work hard to create a safe space for clients where they feel valued and respected.

Finding a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist. Many sex addicts and their partners say they have been to therapy, but it has not been helpful….until they have begun therapy with a CSAT(Certified Sex Addiction Therapist) trained therapist. Founded by Dr. Patrick Carnes, the CSAT® program was developed after years of extensive experience and research in the field of addiction therapy now an industry standard in addiction. The dynamics of behavioral, or process, addictions are complex; so much so that mental health professionals must take an entirely different approach to even begin the process of understanding addiction and recovery.
