About My Clients

I love working with people who experience fear. Fear of what? Fear of being yourself. Fear about expressing what's really going on in within you. Those fears that one part of you knows are irrational, but the other part of you isn't quite convinced. I also love working with people who feel riddled with anxiety—you struggle to relax, concentrating is challenging, and you feel like the world's greatest over-thinker. If you feel like a gold-medalist in over-thinking, I want to work with you.

My Background and Approach

I have a M.S. in Clinical Psychology and B.A. in Philosophy. My approach prioritizes non-judgmental curiosity and open-mindedness. I want to help you get to the bottom of the story of what's happening for you. This usually takes us to moments and experiences from your past that, unbeknownst to you, are interrupting your experience in the present. So, you can say I utilize a psychodynamic and attachment-based approach. The goal of psychotherapy is to help you change your life; to help you enjoy your life and flourish. I believe this is actually possible. I also want you to know that I'm a client in my own psychotherapy. I say this to give you confidence that I won't attempt to lead you somewhere that I haven't been willing to go myself. I look forward to hearing from you.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I have experience working with a wide range of issues and traumas of (nearly) all kinds. I believe in offering psychotherapeutic care to anyone who feels they could benefit from it and my goal stays the same: to help you, whoever you may be, clarify what's happening for you internally so that you can achieve a life of flourishing.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
