Thank you for your interest in my practice. I see therapy as a powerful two-person process of discovery and acceptance. In session we laugh, we cry, we understand and we grow. We read over the past, stay rooted in the present, and look forward to a more balanced and fulfilling future. My integrative approach to treatment is rooted in interpersonal psychodynamic theory, but also drives from other models to meet each person's unique needs. My areas of expertise include trauma work, college mental health, issues related to international relocation, cultural integration, study abroad, body-mind balance, and adoption.


I work in English, Italian and Spanish with adults and couples, also via teletherapy. I have a special interest in working with individuals affected by international relocation or multilocalism. I assist many of my clients juggling global identities, while navigating delicate cultural and geographic boundaries.


Being a registered yoga teacher, I combine clinical skills and yoga knowledge to help my patients achieve their potential, through harmony of mind, body and culture. I strive to equip each client with the courage and tools to overcome challenges, navigate transitions, view life from new angles, and discover previously unknown resources and opportunities.
