My Approach to Helping

I specialize in insight-oriented therapy aimed at understanding patterns underlying feelings and behaviors that clients wish to address in therapy. I am also informed in cognitive-behavioral approaches to symptom management. I seek to create a space in which clients feel safe and engaged. Through the unique therapeutic relationship we establish, my clients work toward a deeper and more meaningful understanding of themselves. I have advanced training in psychodynamic psychotherapy from a Harvard Medical School teaching hospital and am a fellow at the PINE Psychoanalytic Center. My therapeutic stance is gentle, accepting, and curious.

I work with adults across the age span, including college students, on a wide range of concerns. I specialize in mood and anxiety disorders, trauma and PTSD, relationship and family concerns, as well as identity-related issues. In addition, I assist clients with major life transitions (e.g., identity, relationships, family and life stages, careers).

I highly value working with people with diverse gender, sexual, racial, and socioeconomic identities and backgrounds. I have contributed to and presented research on the factors that lead to change in psychotherapy. I have also worked on policy efforts to improve community support services for individuals experiencing mental illness.
