Psychology today Profile photo_edited_edited.jpg

With warmth, empathy and often humor, I strive to create a safe and non-judgemental space where you feel free to explore the past, engage fully in the present and create the future that you envision for yourself. I am committed to meeting you where you are on your journey with sensitivity to your unique lived experience, as well as fostering a therapeutic relationship that is 
both interactive and collaborative. Together, we can identify patterns of thinking and behavior that may not be serving you while developing concrete skills that will bring you closer to achieving your goals and help you connect more deeply to your authentic self and others. 


Trained as a clinical social worker and drawing on over 20 years of experience as a yoga instructor and health educator, I believe in a holistic approach to therapy that respects your unique emotional and cognitive needs. I tailor treatment goals to your presenting issues and inherent strengths using a psychodynamic, relational approach and I often incorporate CBT skills and mindfulness practices into our work together. 


I enjoy working with individuals and couples on a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, life transitions, trauma, relationship stress, and body image concerns. Please reach out by phone or email if you are interested in making an appointment. I look forward to hearing from you.
