About My Clients

Are you feeling stuck in your relationships? Are you repeating the same choices over and over, hoping each time will be different? Do you long for a healthy relationship? Are you in a relationship with someone you really care about but feel terrified it won't work out? Have you been told you are too needy or codependent? These are just some of the common experiences women can have when it comes to love. Together, I can help you feel more confident, empowered and at ease in your relationships.

My Background and Approach

Graduating in 2012, I obtained a Master’s Degree in Somatic Counseling Psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco. Yoga and meditation are central practices in my personal life and I support my clients to discover and integrate mindfulness practices that work for them. My approach to therapy is relational and collaborative. I am warm, open, sincere and enjoy using humor in my sessions. The tools I'll provide you with are to empower you to recognize your relationship style and patterns so that you can communicate and make decisions with confidence. We'll address what triggers you in relationships and use body-based tools to help you stay present in the moment. This will help you become more aware of your patterns and so you can make empowered choices that support healthy relationships.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am passionate about supporting and empowering women. My practice was created specifically with women's needs in mind, taking into account the biological, psychological, social and cultural influences that make being a woman-identified individual both challenging and amazing. Human rights and gender equality are important causes to me, and my commitment to you as a therapist is to support and empower you to have the fulfilling life that is your birthright. I was raised culturally Jewish, and I identify with Buddhist philosophy. I often attend meditation retreats and I enjoy integrating new meditation techniques into my sessions with clients. I truly believe that our struggles have deep meaning and that all humans can change. When we can discover the meaning behind our painful and dysfunctional behavior, we become empowered to take responsibility for our lives and overcome our challenges.
