My Approach to Helping
We will work on identifying sustainable goals together, increasing somatic awareness, restoring your resiliency, and honoring your strengths. But most importantly, we will build a unique and supportive relationship, which will provide the foundation for growth and healing. In the Philly spirit, I always aspire to bring a little grit and humor to my work.

How Psychotherapy Can Help
Our early experiences with attachment and bonding shape the way we relate to others throughout our lives. If you're struggling with attachment issues, such as fear of abandonment, difficulty trusting others or setting boundaries, or feeling disconnected from yourself or others, my approach could be well suited to working on these issues. I offer therapy that focuses on understanding and healing attachment wounds, which is correlated with healthier, more fulfilling relationships.
What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist
I've wanted to be a therapist since I was a teenager and I still can't imagine doing anything else. It is such a great privilege to hear your life stories. I think it takes a lot of bravery to walk into my office and share your inner thoughts and feelings with me, especially if you haven't experienced a lot of empathic listening in your life. As a fellow frequenter of the couch myself, I know how hard it can be! And also, how deeply meaningful. Through my own journey of healing from trauma and witnessing profound transformations in my clients, I bring more than just clinical tools to the therapeutic process.
