Everyone, at least once in their life, finds themselves struggling with life events that feel insurmountable or with emotions that feel outside of their control. I believe that therapy can help with that and bring out your own resilience and capacity to learn. My guiding principle is to provide an open and accepting environment where people can explore their personal experiences and reinforce their well-being.
I view therapy as a collaborative process and use acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to emphasize mindfulness and awareness of self. Working together, we can identify barriers to success, maladaptive responses and strategies to help you find the change you’re looking for. I enjoy working with a diverse and multicultural population of clientele, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Get to Know:
Therapy can help people work through suffering to reach their life goals. Sometimes we get stuck in some important part of life and we are lost about how to move forward. It’s often the case that our tools for dealing with life’s problems and challenges – tools that have worked well in the past – are no longer working. My approach to therapy involves providing new tools to cope effectively.
I specialize in using evidence-based treatments including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and exposure-based interventions (e.g., Prolonged Exposure for PTSD).
