About My Clients

My ideal clients recognize that they have a concern or problem that is significantly impacting their lives. They may struggle with anxiety or stress and would like some coping mechanisms. They may have difficulty establishing healthy relationships and need help with interpersonal skills. They may have a lot of frustration in dating and/or friendships and personal connections. They may rail against the injustices of biases, micro and macroaggressions, and struggle with the angst they cause.

My Background and Approach

I am a former international school educator who has lived in several countries, including India, England, France, and Belgium. I have master's degrees in counseling and education, and I am currently studying for my doctorate in psychology in New York City. I am a strong proponent of and believer in person-centered, compassion-focused therapy. Above all, the therapeutic space is one that is a safe environment, one that was designed especially for your needs. This is a place where you can freely discuss the issues that are causing you pain and discomfort—yet you will never be pushed to share something before you are ready. In therapy, we will talk about the thoughts and/or behaviors and circumstances that are causing you pain, and identify the source of that pain. We will examine the purpose of the thoughts and behaviors you have in response to triggering events, and together, help you work on adopting and maintaining healthier responses.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a strong and fervent believer in racial and social justice and human rights. I strongly support women's rights and issues and feel that humanity as it stands now has much work to do in terms of being more connected and inclusive. In my view, the current global climate shows that people are extremely divided from one another, perhaps more than ever, and in ways that ultimately serve to collectively do more harm than good. Finally, I am an unabashed animal lover, particularly of the canine variety.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
