PRACTICE UPDATE: I offer teletherapy services only and will not be returning to in-person appointments.


You may be searching for ways to feel better and improve your life. Whatever challenge you are facing, whether it is a stressful life transition or situation, relationship difficulties, low self-worth, or anxiety, therapy can help. Therapy can provide you a safe and confidential space to explore these difficulties and find ways to overcome them. Examining your past and current situation can build insight and empower you to make positive changes in your life.

As a licensed clinical psychologist, the goal of my work is to help my clients connect to their authentic selves in order to reach their true potential and lead more balanced, satisfying lives. Choosing a therapist can be a daunting task, and it can be difficult to find someone you can trust. My warm, empathic, and non-judgmental approach helps to facilitate a supportive environment in which my clients feel safe to examine and work through their most challenging issues.

“Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.”
― Viktor Frankl
