About My Clients

You are not bad because you’re struggling, you are not weak because you’re experiencing pain, and you are not undeserving of love because hope eludes you now. Your suffering is real and, with the right support, it can be the path that leads you to deeper self-knowledge and a more empowered relationship with life.

My Background and Approach

I know that asking for help and opening up to someone new can feel vulnerable and intimidating. Using empathy, curiosity, and tender humor, I work in partnership with you to engage in the process of self-discovery. As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I have clinical experience working with adults, adolescents, couples, and military Veterans. I earned my Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology with an emphasis in Depth Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute. Before exploring my passion for therapy, I worked in the high-demand corporate worlds of music editorial and digital marketing in New York City. This diverse experience has fueled my curiosity for human motivation and passion for creativity, and given me a window into the experiences of clients who work in the corporate sector. ||| You can visit for more information on my background, fees, and other FAQs and book a free initial consultation online. |||

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Changing behaviors is a noble step toward self-improvement, but just mowing the weeds doesn't stop them from growing back. The process of self-discovery is a beautiful one that allows your whole self to come into focus. Digging up and healing the unconscious material behind your struggle -- tending to the root of the weeds -- can lead to long-lasting change. I can partner you in that excavation. Hidden within that unconscious material may be the realization that what informs you from within was created from without. The systems in which we exist and learn--families, schools, communities, cultures, and societies-- can inform our values, self-worth, and perceptions of (or actual) safety out in the world, and this is imperative to name and process in therapy so that you're not holding blame, shame and stuckness for that which was never yours in the first place.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
