About My Clients

Do you have a sense that something is not quite fitting for you- or that you could be accomplishing more or enjoying more? This therapy is right for you if you're ready to try something new, get a little uncomfortable, and explore what's true for you.

My Background and Approach

My approach can be described as "eclectic" simply because I value using what WORKS for each individual client. I incorporate the body and spirit with mindful somatic (body-oriented) therapy, welcome your historical and relational self with psychodynamic approaches, and address your thoughts and values with evidence-based Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. Without all the jargon, that means that this therapy is about addressing the reality in the present moment, making space for all the feelings that come up, and take concrete actions in the direction of your goals. I find this way of working incredibly rewarding! I received my undergraduate degree at NYU with an individualized concentration on body image and art therapy. I taught yoga for a few years, then got my Master's at the California Institute of Integral Studies with a concentration in Somatic Psychology. I've worked at the Center for Somatic Psychotherapy, Grateful Heart, and Center for Mindful Psychotherapy.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I strive to be an ally and a champion for social justice- which means I am willing to make mistakes and willing to be called out. In terms of therapy, it means I make space for differences and tough conversations. I hold that each person is inherently worthy and deserves compassion, dignity, and respect- and that actually applying that is an ongoing process we take as individuals and a community.
