I am a licensed clinical psychologist working with couples, adults, and families. It is my belief that a warm and compassionate environment in therapy, in conjunction with problem solving and a growth-oriented attitude lead to better quality of life. The goal is to understand the thought and behavior patterns that can damage one's happiness and create problems in relating to others; and to replace them with healthier ones. My therapy services address issues ranging from stress and anxiety to depression, anger, relationship and communication problems, self-esteem, identity, and grief/loss.

With over 10 years clinical experience, I am passionate about using evidence-based practices to help empower you every day, not just when you are in crisis. I am Certified in Dialectical Behavior Therapy. Combining Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, along with Person-Centered and Humanistic approaches I work diligently to create a welcoming, supporting and safe environment where individuals can feel free to express themselves. Working through difficult times alone can often feel overwhelming and defeating without help.

Is your toddler, preschooler or early-elementary school-age child struggling at home or in their child-care setting, preschool or school? Is their behavior disrupting the school day or home life? There are many reasons this could be occurring: medical, sensory-motor or developmental issues; a misfit between him/her and the child-care environment; emotion regulation or neurocognitive problems; or family or parenting stress. I'm here to help you uncover the mystery of your child's current challenges, reduce problematic behaviors, and implement strategies for home and school that will get your child back onto a pathway to social-emotional wellness.

My treatment approach combines the latest advances in Western neuroscience with evidence-based mindfulness practices rooted in Eastern philosophies. I primarily utilize two complementary modalities - Experiential Dynamic Therapy (EDT) and Internal Family Systems (IFS). These are evidenced based and trauma-informed treatments that aim to address the root causes of psychological suffering rather than simply addressing the outlying symptoms.

Emotional/behavioral problems are a part of life and can affect any human being regardless of age, race, social status. There is no shame in seeking help when one is vulnerable as you would if you were suffering from any other illness. Life brings tremendous challenges to all of us and it takes strength to confront them and improve the quality of our life. We can't change our past but we can change our relationship to it. I am partnered up with a physician board certified in psychiatry and addiction medicine to provide comprehensive treatment if medication is needed.

Historically, you've succeeded at just about everything you do. But whether you are a senior executive, a professional athlete, or a stay-at-home mom, we all eventually hit a wall. The anxiety becomes intense enough that we think others are starting to notice. The depression gets harder to beat on our own. Someone uses the word "addiction" for the first time. We all want to excel at work and feel connected at home, but sometimes we just feel stuck.

You’re allowed to feel enough just as you are. My passion lies with those who feel misunderstood, who mask to fit in, or who feel "normal" is a distant concept. It can feel exhausting navigating a world that feels unnatural, unsafe, uncontrollable, or judgmental, like others don't connect with who you are. It falsifies reality and reinforces irrational, intrusive, uncontrollable, and disruptive beliefs; you convince yourself you are the problem… but you aren’t. Whether an adolescent, neurodivergent, challenged by a life transition, socially awkward/isolated, or struggling to process a big or little trauma, you matter.

I believe that during times of exploration and life crises it is helpful to have a safe supportive environment and a caring, knowledgeable professional to reflect and learn with. Challenges such as anxiety, depression, trauma, readjustment to loss and other changes can be disarming and disorienting. Complicated family dynamics, transitions and developmental tasks along with ineffective communication patterns are hard to untangle alone. When faced with conflicting wants and needs as well as difficult problem-solving and decision-making situations, having a professional who you can confide in and not feel judged by is a welcomed relief.
