I believe in collaboration and in change. My approach combines cognitive behavioral therapy methods with stress reduction, mindfulness, and problem-solving approaches. Psychotherapy is ultimately about living a fuller, more meaningful life and I believe I can help you achieve this. There are many triggers we all face: relationship and identity issues, loss or trauma, perfectionism, and life transitions. I am interactive and direct in challenging dysfunctional patterns that are getting in the way of leading the life you want. I will work collaboratively with you to develop a plan of action, building on strengths, to bring balance, meaning, and ease into your life.

I work with young adults on the various challenges that arise when transitioning into adulthood, including creating healthy romantic/peer relationships, early career development, and challenging family dynamics. I have experience supporting individuals in exploring their gender, sexual, and romantic identity development, and welcome members of the LGBTQQIA+ community.

Listening defines my approach to your treatment. A major difference in working with a psychoanalyst as opposed to other mental health practitioners is the careful, consistent, deep attention a psychoanalyst gives to listening. Change can occur because the first emphasis of this treatment is understanding, rather than feeling pressured to "do" something. Psychoanalysts develop this skill by engaging in extensive institute training beyond that required for their license. My goal is for you to achieve substantive, durable change through a collaborative approach to understanding the deeper meanings and causes of problems you face.

Psychotherapy provides a unique space through which a new relationship with oneself and others can be forged. Change in patterns of feeling and relating can be achieved through a process of exploration of and reflection on one's deeply held beliefs, convictions, and values, and past and present experiences. My approach is collaborative and informed by psychodynamic perspectives. I strive to facilitate meaning, understanding, and empowerment through close attention to the details of one's internal life and external context. Many of the individuals I work with enter psychotherapy to work through depression and anxiety related to struggles with identity, relationships, loss, trauma, and migration.

I believe that human beings are, above all, adaptive. We develop powerful and unique ways to survive and succeed under conditions that are insensitive, unforgiving, and overwhelming. As a therapist, my approach builds upon the strength of this adaptive ability while remaining responsive to the anger, fear, and shame that can accompany it. I work with you to foster deeper self-compassion in the face of broader social circumstances that often encourage the opposite.
