I believe that the mind-body connection is a crucial component of the therapeutic process and that everyone has the potential to change, grow and be a better human if that is their desire. I encourage my patients to explore self-compassion, positive self-talk and self-love. I am active member of the Black Lives Matter movement and strongly support LGBTQ rights. I believe in science and that all human beings have worth, value and deserve to be treated with respect. Yoga, books, meditative walks through the city and my loved ones keep me sane.
