My Approach to Helping

People don't have to be in crisis to come to therapy; oftentimes, those who contact me are managing feelings that have been building up over time. I have niche experience working with medical professionals such as physicians, nurses and medical trainees and directed a new program at UNMC aimed at understanding burnout. I enjoy working with college and graduate students, international students, and did this at counseling centers like MIT. I especially like working with adults in general, and new parents. I completed my APA internship and postdoc in the Penn System where I saw a variety of people living with a range of feelings.

I believe that addressing feelings and understanding where they stem from, and how to manage them, can help people navigate life's challenges in relationships, work, school, and beyond. I strive to create a safe, non-judgmental, emotionally rich and confidential environment for individuals to explore what's on their mind.

Collaborating on other areas of your life that you may want to examine, such as your relationships with others (romantic, friendship, personal, professional) is something I find joy in. I look forward to meeting you and potentially working together to uncover not just what might be holding you back or keeping you up at night, but your strengths as well.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

It is not uncommon to hear a client admit they either feel weak, or are worried about being perceived as flawed, for seeking professional help. Perhaps they grew up in a family where psychotherapy and seeking "help" was frowned upon. Of course, there are also cultural reasons and views for why psychotherapy may be off-limits. I aim to understand and respect my client's concerns, and do not want to minimize their reasons for having these concerns. Going to therapy, if the client finds it helpful, and struggling with these questions does not, I believe, make a client weak- but very human, and brave.
