It can be rather disheartening to expend considerable energy trying to change something and be left with a similar outcome. It is not easy to lead a fulfilling life while being caught in patterns outside of our consciousness. Psychotherapy gives us the opportunity to look inward and ask how a fleeting thought, a dream, or a subtle change may be related to our struggle. Taking a closer look at something while also being curious about the path taken during that exploration can open up a whole new world of understanding.

As a licensed psychologist, I work to provide a supportive and inquisitive space for clients interested in pursuing more in-depth therapy. I specialize in helping clients with existential questions, grief, anxiety, and life transitions.

I have been providing psychotherapy for over eight years in various settings including college counseling centers and hospitals. I completed advanced training in psychodynamic therapy through Harvard Medical School.
