One of my favorite quotes is from Leonard Cohen: "There is a crack in everything. That's how the light gets in." Our brokenness can cause us so much pain and turmoil, and yet it is that very brokenness or imperfection that can help us uncover our greatest potential. As a psychotherapist, my goal is to help you tap into that luminous potential in order to unlock more choices in your life and to further personal growth.


I provide individual, couples, and group therapy for adults struggling to find their way through anxiety, depression, life transitions, relationship challenges, grief and loss, and substance use. I also work with survivors of trauma in its many forms, such as relational trauma, sexual assault, and social oppression.


I utilize psychoanalytic and mindfulness approaches to facilitate self-exploration and the development of a deeper sense of connection to yourself and others. Together we can create a safe, compassionate space to support your journey toward healing and self-empowerment.
