About Me:

  • My clients describe me as:

    bright, joyous, and funny. At the same time, I'm authentic and transparent. We'll talk about what we are doing together, and I'll be real with you.

  • Something to know about my approach is:

    I will help you figure out what’s behind anxiety, perfectionism, and self-criticism - and what fuels it in both your mind and body. Together, we'll work on soothing and quieting very reactive minds and nerves - all with a little fun and laughter.

  • Together, we will:

    build the skills and mindset you need to cultivate self-compassion, set better boundaries, and quiet your inner critic. As we grow our connection, we’ll go at your own pace so that therapy feels grounding and comfortable.

  • I specialize in working with people who:

    are self-critical and sometimes feel lonely and anxious. My clients often have a noisy inner critic and tend to struggle with self-compassion, setting boundaries, and seeing themselves for the talented, brilliant people they are.

  • I became a therapist because:

    I am endlessly curious about how we become who we are, and how we change and heal. I love reading the latest science about our minds and bodies.

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

    that I work 100% online; clients can connect with me from wherever they are, even if it's their car on a lunch break.

  • More about me and my practice:

    I often integrate mindfulness and curiosity into our sessions, but can also bring in music and art if words are not the most comfortable way for you to express yourself. No matter what works best for you, we'll heal together and have fun doing it.
