My Approach to Helping
I work with people of all backgrounds and I specialize in treating millenials, queertransgender nonconforming people, artists and women in tech. My style is engaged, respectful, collaborative and compassionate; informed by a socio-cultural lense. You don't have to go at it alone. Contact me and let's begin the conversation.
Are you seeking relief from depression, anxiety, grief or the effects of a breakup? Are you struggling at work? Maybe you want to change how you interact with your family or partner? I work with individuals and couples to improve their relationships, navigate life transitions, and heal from traumatic experiences. In therapy, you can begin to create meaningful changes; better relationships, more work satisfaction, greater self understanding, and more fulfillment. I have found that through therapy sometimes what is painful at the start leads to a more fulfilled, free, and meaningful life.
I will hold your feelings in the context of both your past and present life as we make sense of them. I will listen to you carefully; working with you to develop a fuller understanding of what you are experiencing so that I can support you through it. I invite you to schedule an initial session.

How Psychotherapy Can Help
By applying the self-awareness you gain in our work together, we unearth long-standing behavior patterns and perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more gratifying life.
While we can't change the past we can change our relationship to the past and work together to better understand and resolve the challenges in your life. I do my best to help you develop greater trust in yourself and others, greater self-confidence and healthy self-assertion.
My objective is to assist you in finding the resources within yourself to achieve your true potential, accomplish personal and professional goals and lead a life worth celebrating. My work is a passion and I consider it an honor and a privilege to facilitate your journey.

Sessions are held one time or more per week depending on your individual needs and go for 50 minutes.
