My Approach to Helping

I provide guidance on: 1) managing psychological symptoms and difficulties; 2) adjusting to unexpected and difficult life circumstances like a loss or medical illness, or 3) achieving personal growth based on your needs, values, and goals. I am committed to helping you gain clarity about what is a valued life to you and manage the things that are getting in the way of that life you want to live and the person you want to be.

I provide science-informed practical therapy. Sessions are collaborative and an active space to work toward your goals. I am dedicated to not only helping you manage distress but to also move toward what is meaningful and fulfilling to you. We will find ways to bring more agency into your hands when so much of life is out of our control.

I am a native English-bilingual speaker, have a multi-cultural background, and have lived in different countries and parts of the US. I believe that these qualities can bring nuance to my work with you. BOOK A FREE CONSULTATION TODAY at and be seen within a few days. If I’m not the right clinician for you, I can help find the right one.
