Profile
“I enjoy working with individuals who are motivated to create change but, for a variety of reasons, may just lack the proper skills and tools to get there.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
My family and I immigrated to the US when I was young. We experienced many difficulties and resiliency as well. As a result, I became interested in helping others and understanding what’s shaped them. I've been able to work in a number of clinical settings with adults. For over a decade, I worked in healthcare on inpatient psychiatric units with children, adolescents, and adults. I’ve worked in higher education in a college counseling center and taught graduate courses. I've been in private practice for a number of years, helping adults with anxiety, depression, stress, relationship difficulties, and career challenges. Additionally, I do consulting and have extensive experience providing therapy to individuals working at "The Big Four" accounting firms.
What should someone know about working with you?
I enjoy working with individuals who are motivated to create change but, for a variety of reasons, may just lack the proper skills and tools to get there. I pull from my training and experience in psychodynamic therapy, CBT, DBT, and ACT to create a tailored approach. I work with you to clarify and understand your goals and develop a plan to help create the change you are seeking in your life. I strive to employ your personal strengths and build upon them in therapy. I enjoy fostering a client’s personal growth, emotional well-being, and sense of empowerment. From my experience, homework is a helpful and useful aspect of therapy, as it allows the client to practice and strengthen skills outside of sessions. Therapy is hard work but well worth the investment in yourself; the multitude of rewards will affect all aspects of your life.

What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I participate in continuing education courses, training, and reading throughout the year out of interest and in order to stay informed of the most effective practices and approaches. In all my years of practice, I have always collaborated with other providers (psychiatrists, doctors, psychiatric nurse practitioners, nutritionists, etc.), because I believe it is important for treatment providers across the continuum to share information in order to best help the client.
