I am here to support your journey. Let’s work together to explore the challenges standing in between you and the life you want to have. My passion is understanding the unique contextual factors that have shaped your view of yourself and the world. I am a clinical psychologist (Licensed in CT, NY, ME) with over 15 years of experience providing strength-based individual and group therapy to adult clients (18+). My practice relies on several approaches including cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT), motivational interviewing (MI), reality therapy, relapse prevention, and solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT).

My specializations include issues related to pre/post weight loss surgery lifestyle, stress management, women’s mental health (including pregnancy, postpartum, & infertility), depression, anxiety, relationship issues (I do not provide couples therapy), and addictions. Another focus of my practice is working with actors and other creatives struggling with stressors related to the highs and lows of working in the entertainment industry.

In addition to being a psychologist, I hold a certification in Diversity & Inclusion. I am committed to providing culturally competent care and serving the BIPOC, AAPI, Latinx, and LGBTQ+ communities. My practice focuses on identifying and exploring the intersecting identities of each individual, their experiences of bias/discrimination/stigma, and examining how those experiences influence one's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.

My overarching goal is to maintain a safe space where all clients feel seen, heard, and free to be their authentic selves.
