About Me:

  • My clients describe me as:

    Goal-oriented, compassionate, respectful of individual needs, down-to earth, flexible, and a supportive guide in working through painful moments.

  • Something to know about my approach is:

    I support a therapy that is nonjudgmental and client-centered out of respect for your specific needs and goals. The path to optimal mental wellness is, at times, not a walk in the park, and I look forward to supporting you on this journey.

  • Together, we will:

    Establish a pace that is fitting for you in the therapy process of healing for meaningful change and growth. We will engage in therapeutic approaches to help you develop healthier ways of thinking and long-term coping skills to achieve your goals.

  • I specialize in working with people who:

    Experience anxiety and depressive issues including low self-esteem, imposter syndrome, perfectionism, and trauma. I specialize in working with student doctors, physicians, and other professionals in stressful workplace cultures.

  • I became a therapist because:

    Knowing the impact of various social issues (racism, inequalities, bullying, etc), gives me the drive and reward to be part of a person's healing.

  • Something that stands out about where I offer therapy is:

    The appreciation of no one size fits all. I support a therapy experience that is client-centered out of respect for your specific needs and goals.

  • More about me and my practice:

    I specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) while also including other treatment approaches to address negative narratives to help manage anxieties and depressive issues. For out-of-pocket/out-of-network, a sliding scale fee can be offered.
