About My Clients

In addition to treating many clients with anxiety and depression, I work regularly with issues of perfectionism, peer comparison, academic pressure, and burnout. I also help clients build healthy friendships and partnerships, explore identity issues, adjust to new situations and life phases, and examine possible career directions. I have experience working with perinatal, postpartum, and new parenting issues as well.

My Background and Approach

Since great therapy is tailored to each client, I integrate a variety of approaches into my work, including insight-oriented methods, mindfulness practices, and cognitive behavioral techniques. Depending on what clients bring to session, we might work on specific tools to address a current problem, examine origins of a long-standing pattern, or explore some of life’s biggest questions. I believe in the inherent resiliency of my clients, and I empower them to tap into their inner strengths and resources. At the foundation of my practice is always the relationship with my clients, which is built on mutual trust and active collaboration. My professional training includes degrees in Psychology (BA, Harvard University), Social Work (MSW, University of Chicago), and Higher Education (EdD, Northeastern University), along with experience in university counseling, community mental health, and international education. Clients describe me as authentic, attentive, compassionate, and dedicated.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My identity as a social worker is deeply rooted in a commitment to standing against discrimination and oppression, and to supporting the empowerment of marginalized people. My practice is welcoming and affirming to individuals of all races, cultures, sexual orientations, and gender dimensions, and is a safe space in which to explore the role that power and privilege play in our lives.
