I believe therapy should be collaborative. Let’s work together to explore the challenges standing in between you and the life you want to have. I am committed to understanding the contextual factors that have shaped your unique view of yourself and the world. I am a clinical psychologist (Licensed in CT, NY, ME, NV) with over 15 years of experience providing strength-based individual and group therapy to adult clients (18+). My strengths based 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, managing chronic illness, stress management, work-related problems, women’s mental health (including pregnancy, postpartum, & infertility), depression, anxiety, relationship conflict, 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.
I am passionate about providing culturally competent care and have expertise in working with clients from underserved populations including the BIPOC, AAPI, Latinx, and LGBTQ+ communities, and exploring ways in which one's intersecting identities and experiences of bias, discrimination, and stigma influence thoughts and behaviors.
My overarching goal is to maintain a safe space where all clients feel seen, heard, and free to be their authentic selves.
