My Approach to Helping

If you are looking for a compassionate and non-judgemental space to explore an issue and receive support, I am here to help.

There is so much healing and medicine in simply being able to speak the truth - especially if it has never been spoken out loud before - in a completely safe space. This is where I believe the magic lies in talk therapy. It is my honor to be a supportive listener and witness to shared truths and respond with empathy and acknowledgment. We will work together as a team in alignment with therapeutic goals for growth and healing.

While there is immense relief, catharsis, and growth from simply talking about a problem, this is sometimes not enough. Being a scientist's daughter, it has been really important to study and offer evidence-based approaches like CBT, DBT, and exposure response prevention, to name a few. If there is research to show that an approach can be reliably helpful to most people struggling with a particular issue, I am all for providing that approach!

More Info About My Practice

I believe healing is possible. All spiritual paths lead to the same place and in the power of synchronicity and timing (kairos). I value compassion, empathy, spirituality, creativity, and spending time in nature. To give back, I have volunteered with PCOM's Healthy Monks program, supporting the health of Laotian monks in South Philadelphia. I also volunteer with community events like Society Hill's home and garden show, organize donation drives for local animal shelters, and help provide food for homeless people.

I believe in evidence-based practices, but also recognize the power that lies within the unproven (spiritual experiences, connecting with nature, etc.). By offering my clients a safe, open space to freely explore their true selves, they will find a path of self-acceptance, self-love, and personal improvement.
