At a time when you might be feeling particularly vulnerable or overwhelmed, choosing a therapist can be difficult to do— and yet, finding a therapist with whom you “click” is the secret sauce to good therapy. If you are suffering from depression or anxiety, struggling in your relationships or feeling isolated, unlearning difficult family dynamics, recovering from trauma, feeling stuck, or simply navigating the complex challenges of your life and wanting extra support, I may be that right fit. I bring empathy, insight, warmth, and experience to empower people to change.

Psychotherapy can help you make sense of complicated feelings, gain insight into relational patterns, and begin to move forward in areas of your life where you feel stuck. My focus is to help you untangle struggles, set meaningful goals, revise problematic narratives about yourself, and re-orient you toward your values. My integrative approach is informed by psychodynamic, feminist, multicultural, relational, and behaviorist theories. Above all, I value the therapeutic relationship and your personal growth.

I work with adults and adolescents who are experiencing challenging life circumstances and adjustments, struggle with important relationships, self-esteem, live with mood disorders/anxiety, feel stuck, and individuals wanting to live a more satisfying and engaged life. My work is to participate in creating a safe space and to use my skills to promote awareness and support positive change. This may require looking at both past and present-day issues. Developing a good working relationship (being a good "fit") with my clients is essential.

Welcome! I am a results-oriented therapist who specializes in helping individuals break free of old patterns, find motivation, form deeper relationships, and manage difficult transitions. Using foundations of attachment and neuroscience, I work collaboratively with clients to help them gain insight into how they are "wired". This blueprint allows us to develop effective strategies that both reduce immediate stress and make lasting impacts on your overall well-being and life satisfaction. I believe that the therapist-client connection is paramount to this work and strive to provide a space that is safe, thought-provoking, (sometimes) fun, and always real.

If only the image you have perfected projecting were true. Everyone seems to buy it; that you are as calm, confident, and competent as you portray yourself to be. Meanwhile, you walk around feeling like a little girl wearing her mother’s heels. The worst part is always worrying about being “found out” as the fraud that you know yourself to be. It makes it hard to be really emotionally available and honest in your relationships and you always end up feeling so alone. All the success in your professional life just makes you feel like you have that much more to lose when someone really sees what you are desperately trying to hide.
