About My Clients

I specialize in helping women navigate issues related to identity, intimacy, finding meaning and living more authentically in the face of internal and external pressures. Using this framework, I work with women to help them understand and address depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, and life stage stressors. I am collaborative and primarily use a relational (Psychodynamic) approach that incorporates Mindfulness, Feminist, Holistic and Cognitive-Behavioral (CBT) techniques.
