About Me

I have an eclectic approach to therapy that integrates the client-centered philosophies of the humanistic tradition, the concrete skill based approaches of Mindfulness-based modalities, and the depth perspective of psychoanalysis. I believe that every client is unique and I make every effort to tailor individual sessions in a way that is most helpful to the person. Theories, techniques, and tools are only useful insofar as they increase the sense of wellbeing or insight for the individual. Because I don’t believe in “one-size- fits-all” therapy, I strive to maintain a flexible and receptive attitude toward each person I work with.


I have had the privilege of serving a diversity of individuals from various ethnic, cultural, and sexual orientation/identity backgrounds. Prior to beginning my studies in clinical psychology, I was employed at various civil rights and nonprofit organizations on the east coast including the Human Rights Campaign and the College Success Foundation. 

I have a regular meditation practice and consider it to be an important part of maintaining my own personal peace of mind and helping me better connect with clients. I have a particular interest in the intersection of spirituality and psychology.

I truly love my job.  I feel so grateful to get to know all my clients and explore together how they can have a happier, more satisfying life.
