About My Clients

Do you feel misunderstood? Not truly accepted by the people around you? Do you feel like your struggles are pathologized rather than appreciated? So often those who deviate from the norm are told they are broken and in need of repair -- code for being more typical and simply fitting in so that the people around you can feel more comfortable. Together we will instead explore your true self, and help you better understand who you are and who you want to become.

My Background and Approach

Unlike so many of my colleagues, I didn’t enter college expecting to become a therapist.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe difference is what allows society to flourish. To me, so many of our psychological struggles come from a disconnect between what the outside world expects from us and who we really are.

For me, therapy is about first understanding our own authentic self, and then making changes based on our own beliefs and priorities rather than merely those "given" to us by the outside world. In this way we all can become agents of change that improve not only our own lives, but the world around us too.
