As a psychodynamic, relational therapist, my goal is to create a space where you feel comfortable exploring the aspects of yourself that might be harder to reach. I view relationships through an attachment lens, observing how your formative experiences might be impacting your present, and empowering you to identify patterns that might be holding you back.

Are you feeling stuck? Ready to feel more peace? More joy? Ready to take the next step towards stronger relationships, self love, laughing more, and finding your sense of purpose? My intent as a therapist is to become a mirror, reflecting your deepest desires, life purpose, and the patterns that keep you from living your fullest life.
I utilize trauma- informed evidence-based practices that help the therapy move quickly such as EMDR and CBT helping you identify core beliefs and resolve inflexible patterns of thoughts- feelings- and behaviors. I look forward to connecting with you!

My practice is deeply empathetic and intuitive, utilizes unique life experience and is rooted in the psychodynamic and attachment theory modalities. I also apply trauma-informed care, CBT, and other evidence-based practices, which allows clients to see real and actual positive changes in their lives. For me, process and progress go hand in hand.

I HELP MILLENNIAL AND GEN X PROFESSIONALS CONSCIOUSLY GET WHAT THEY WANT (IN LIFE AND RELATIONSHIPS). Life is overwhelming. Between work, relationships, and technology calling for your attention at every moment, it’s extremely difficult to remain calm and grounded. We can lose our sense of purpose and passion.

Unlike other therapists who merely sit and listen, I take an active and engaged approach. You may find yourself in a guided meditation or a role-play exercise. There may be optional homework assignments. We’ll tune into exactly what you need. I’m here to support you to find your unique, confident voice.

In my experience, few individuals come to therapy feeling that “typical” treatment categories adequately capture their difficulties, hopes, and fears.
Instead, the individuals I work with sometimes describe feeling preoccupied by aspects of important relationships, blocked in their ability to express themselves authentically, or lacking self-confidence. Initially, some may even have trouble finding the right words to describe the changes they’d like to make. Finding these words—the right words—to describe what’s wrong and what relief would look like is a central part of treatment.

I have a blended approach with my clients pulling from psychoanalytic, trauma-informed, cognitive behavioral, DBT, and somatic modalities. Additionally, I take a client-centered approach ensuring that I am conceptualizing the client holistically and learning what styles would benefit them best while holding the therapeutic relationship in high regard. I work with adult 18+ and teens and focus on issues of childhood trauma, anxiety, depression, ADHD/ADD, relationship issues, substance abuse, lack of motivation, and self-esteem.

Sometimes men need an empathic, strong male therapist to gain customized, practical tools to build a good life. I help highly-sensitive, highly-intelligent people, including professionals in business, healthcare, the arts, education, emerging adults, and university students. They might have achieved success in some domain and now feel stuck, as past treatment modalities may have been ineffective. Many of these kind, caring, and strong individuals have survived significant trauma; I work to help them regain and improve agency, autonomy, competence, and relatedness through dialectical behavior therapy, teaching and learning, and social entrepreneurship, so they can live full lives with resilience, joy, and peace.

My practice takes a holistic approach to psychological and emotional wellness, informed by my understanding of the need to incorporate an understanding of a person’s social and environmental surroundings to accurately assess and address their mental health. My clinical approach draws from a number of modalities including Motivational Interviewing, Psychodynamic Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and is also influenced by postcolonial theory.
