Profile
“I am a therapist but I am also a human first and I aim to bring this sense of connection, curiosity, and openness to every therapeutic encounter.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
When I was in college, I lost someone close to me and realized that I didn’t have any tools for coping or actually tolerating my emotions. My own therapy was often painful and arduous but ultimately transformative. I knew that I wanted to support others in a similar way but it took me a while to get here. Prior to becoming a therapist, I worked as a translator, at an investment bank, in a tech company, and I explored yoga teaching. I’ve had a winding career path, which adds depth and empathy to my practice. It taught me that life never proceeds in the straight line that society often makes us feel it should. I love being a part of this human experience we're all having. Yes, I am a therapist but I am also a human first and I aim to bring this sense of connection, curiosity, and openness to every therapeutic encounter.
What should someone know about working with you?
During the initial stages of our work together, I focus on fostering a strong therapeutic relationship as I believe that is the foundation of all good therapy. I take a more active role while we address the specific symptoms that made you seek out therapy and I encourage you to find ways to remain engaged between sessions through homework, journaling, or goal-setting. Together, we’ll also look deeper at the underlying beliefs that led to your symptoms in the first place. My goal is to help you discover your innate capacity to heal beyond just patching things up on the surface. No matter what draws you to therapy, I believe that we are all struggling with the most fundamental human questions: What gives my life meaning? How do I feel fulfilled? How can I accept and allow others to see my most basic, core self?

What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
In the mental health field, we're finally starting to acknowledge that we can't separate mental wellbeing from physical wellbeing and I believe this connection is fundamental to true healing. Prior to the pandemic in Brooklyn, I offered my clients the opportunity to go on walks during sessions because of the benefits of both movement and spending time outdoors for mental health. It’s time to think outside of the narrow idea that therapy can only happen on a couch. My interest in the body-mind connection inspired me to take EMDR training for trauma. I also hold space for the field's increasing inclusion of mystical or transcendental experiences in treatment, such as those that can result from psychedelics, nature, creativity, and love. These experiences are often stigmatized or neglected but I view therapy as a space to help clients enrich their understanding of these experiences and integrate them into the daily functioning of their lives.
