My Approach to Helping
Therapy begins with a meaningful connection: You should feel heard, valued and appreciated by your therapist. I am a compassionate listener and my office is a judgment-free zone where you can explore the issues that are causing you stress, unhappiness or frustration.
More Info About My Practice
I frequently work with individuals in creative fields who are feeling blocked, anxious or off course.
I also work with parents who are navigating the white waters of child rearing in this busy city.
Ideally, therapy should be a process of ever-deepening conversations that promote insight, acceptance, and clarity. The process can help you have greater compassion for yourself and a better understanding of how to live in a more satisfying way. Learning the reasons that you may feel stuck, sad, anxious or depressed can be extremely liberating.
In addition to my training in psychotherapy, I am a certified yoga teacher and an experienced writer. When patients are interested, I teach mindfulness skills and/or provide writing assignments to reduce stress and deepen insight.
What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist
I became a therapist because I believe we all have the potential to grow into better, more satisfied versions of our selves. My goal is to help you identify how you want to live and the blocks that are preventing you from getting there.
