Profile
“Conversations marked by curiosity, compassion, and imagination will help you name your concerns and find your way forward.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I was drawn to clinical psychology out of intellectual excitement and through my own positive experience in therapy. Years of work as a mental health administrator give me insight into work-life challenges. I am a long-time meditator and have trained in couples therapy, hypnotherapy, and mindfulness-based therapy. I continue to learn, most of all, from my clients.
What should someone know about working with you?
I’ll help you keep moving toward your goals but at a pace that feels right for you. Conversations marked by curiosity, compassion, and imagination will help you name your concerns and find your way forward. You will learn options for working with challenging experiences, emotions, and thoughts, expressing yourself, and connecting and/or setting boundaries with others in your life. I may challenge you at times to see things in a new light, but I will check in to ensure that our work feels comfortable and productive.

How do your own core values shape your approach to therapy?
As a native New Yorker and a child of a refugee, I am excited and curious about the varieties of human identity. Our complex identifications with race, religion, culture, and gender as well as class, generation, and a myriad of subtler “tags” coexist in ways that may confound us but ultimately deserve to be reconciled and embraced. I find that as one works through issues in therapy, one’s individual identity shines forth, reflecting one’s roots and personal experience along with chosen beliefs and sources of inspiration. Through Buddhism, I have learned the power of regarding and tolerating inner experiences honestly, kindly, and without judgment and how to act with mindfulness of personal values.
