I believe in the sacredness of a thoughtful, co-constructed relationship between client and therapist. Empathy and non-judgement are foundational to my clinical approach, and I also believe in therapy as a dynamic process. As such, I encourage clients to embrace challenges, welcome humor, and acknowledge their humanity. Your history, needs, and desires are unique – your therapy should be too.
As a therapist, I am keenly interested in early life experiences, language, and the nature of one’s relationships – especially the relationship with oneself. My approach is rooted in interpersonal and psychodynamic interventions, though self-knowledge is the ultimate goal. I aim to assist my clients in examining and understanding their biological, psychological, social, and spiritual selves. In its best form, this is a collaborative process.
I serve adolescents, adults, and couples from an array of ages, backgrounds, and orientations. The clients I see generally have concerns around relationships, anxiety, depression, social phobia, grief and bereavement, academic performance, and self-esteem.
I am a graduate of New York University’s Silver School of Social Work and am currently enrolled in postgraduate training at the Washington School of Psychiatry.
More than anything, therapy is a movement towards greater self-understanding. Wherever you happen to be right now, I look forward to meeting you there.
