Stressed out about life? Feeling anxious or blue? Held back by low self-esteem? Unfulfilled professionally? Codependent in your relationships? Scared of commitment? Overwhelmed by feelings of guilt? Acting impulsively? Self-medicating? Let me help.
My specialty is working with millennials - men and women in their 20s, 30s and 40s - Millennials and Gen X. I believe that people benefit from working with a therapist who is emotionally and mentally dedicated to a limited number of clients. Subsequently my practice is very selective. Every person and every therapy dyad is unique. There are no formulaic diagnoses to categorize and fit people into. There is no one-size-fits-all approach. While my background, life experience and personal therapeutic journey inform my work, I am empathically attuned to your experience and your needs.
Together we explore and make meaning of your experience. We work in a safe, serene and private environment that facilitates insight into patterns that organize your ways of thinking, being and interpersonally relating to others, both inside and outside the therapeutic relationship. At the same time, when it is warranted or desired, I will share my perspective and provide guidance. I am outcome-oriented.
I love what I do and I care deeply about the people I work with. Working together we will help you become more aware, exist more authentically and lead a more fulfilling life.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed
We live - still to this day - in a macho society and we are raised from a young age to be strong. Being strong means being independent and knowing how to cope on our own with life and its many struggles. Seeking someone's help is viewed as weak, particularly so for emotional and mental difficulties; and especially for men. Hence there is a lot of shame and anxiety about going to therapy. We hire trainers to help us work out better; we get massage therapy to temporarily relieve stress in our bodies; we work with physical therapists to fix physical injuries - but we won't invest time and effort in our emotional and mental well-being, which more often than not is connected to how we feel physically in our bodies. Mind and body.
Yet most of us lack healthy emotional coping skills: we ignore and repress feelings, and some of us don't even know how to feel; we ruminate and fill our heads with thoughts; we put up defenses, like pretending to be someone we're not; we're stuck with bad habits that die hard; etc etc. At the same time, we fear exposing ourselves to others and we seek quick fixes. Our lives are busy and we have other priorities. Therapy is a long-term commitment to ourselves - to discover who we truly are, to get in touch with our feelings, and to tolerate uncertainty and be comfortable in being uncomfortable. It can be a long journey but it's well worth it. You're worth it.
