About Me:

  • My clients describe me as:

    With me, no topic is off limits. I create a safe atmosphere for you to be vulnerable, in order to build confidence, and make lasting change.

  • Something to know about my approach is:

    Our sessions may include: body awareness, I'll ask you questions, EMDR, exploring your personal history, in-the-moment observations, challenge negative beliefs, focus on our interpersonal dynamics, I'll share relatable stories, or we'll just talk!

  • Together, we will:

    For individual therapy, we will get to understand your perfectionism and how you got to be that way, what's holding you back, and how to move forward to live the life you want. For couples, explore and ID beliefs to communicate more effectively.

  • I specialize in working with people who:

    1. Feel the need to be perfect all the time and may struggle with anxiety or depression, and/or have a trauma history, and/or have a history of rape or abuse. 2. Interracial and interfaith couples having trouble connecting and communicating.

  • I became a therapist because:

    I came to psych through my yoga practice at the time. The somatic psych field piqued my interest - it's the union between mental health & the body.

  • More about me and my practice:

    I happen to know a little bit about a lot of things. I’ve also been described as warm, friendly, direct, intense, calm, caring, smart, curious, open-minded, non-judgmental, and easy to talk to. Do with that what you will!
