My Approach to Helping

I work with artists and creative individuals of all types in a therapeutic setting to help uncover deep-rooted issues that prevent sustained happiness. Psychotherapy grants us a neutral space where we can release outdated patterns, explore current parts of ourselves, and integrate new ways of adapting without fear. I offer a collaborative approach using a relational lens tailored to individuals needing guidance of: relationships, sexuality, women’s issues, career, life transitions, loss, and recovery.

Your lived experiences, past and present, become the material for us to craft your future goals in a safe and gentle way. The greatest gift you can give yourself is the opportunity to move towards a life that is healed and known.

Along with care, active participation, and a decent amount of humor, I incorporate an eclectic range of modalities and studies: relational, interpersonal, existential, mind-body, and mindfulness. My office is located in NoMad near the 1,2, 3, 6 N, R, Q, F, M, and PATH train.
