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.

Life is a barrage of experiences that constantly shapes our vision of the world. At times, our perception of life can be thrown out of whack by internalized reactions that cast a shadow over ambitions for the future. If this process goes unchecked, it can hinder self awareness, growth and connectedness to others. Through our work together, we can shape the emotional response to an event in order to maximize outcomes and live happier, more fulfilling lives.

Over the last thirty years as a Clinical Psychologist, I have learned how children, adults, couples, and families break free of disheartening relational patterns and rewrite oppressive self-stories. I have learned how to attend to what matters most: feeling safe, opening to love, and creating a life guided by compassion. I truly love my work, and that may be because I am still learning every day how to ask questions that spark wonder and creativity, how to listen for the depth behind words, knowing when to be patient, when to challenge.

Humans get hurt and heal in the context of relationships. I focus on building an attuned, authentic therapeutic relationship with clients, in which one can feel safe enough to examine feelings, vulnerabilities, and struggles, and explore new ways of living a fulfilling life. While I tailor treatment to individual needs and strengths, I predominantly use a psychodynamic lens, incorporating elements of other behavioral and humanistic theories. I take into consideration how issues of power and oppression, intersectionality, and cultural identity impact the human experience individually and collectively, including in the therapy space.
