Profile
“Working with me requires taking a deep look at yourself and asking yourself the tough questions.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
As a child of divorce, I sought therapy to explore my emotions in processing my family’s breakup. In doing so, I discovered that I suffered from low self-image, a tendency for perfectionism, and anxiety. My therapists helped me get out of my own head and live a happy and calm life. I knew I wanted to do the same for others, so I took the path towards becoming a social worker.
What should someone know about working with you?
Working with me requires taking a deep look at yourself and asking yourself the tough questions. I have a reputation for “not taking BS” and pushing my clients to maximize their potential and gain self-understanding.

What advice would you give to someone who is hesitant to try therapy?
It’s daunting to actively choose to open up to a complete stranger and I totally get it. But the reward is so much greater than the risk! I promise that I will make you feel comfortable and understood, even if you choose not to continue further.
Have you done any research-based work that you found particularly exciting? How does it inform your practice today?
I trained in extensive EMDR treatment years ago and it has been life-changing for myself and for my clients. It is empirically proven and researched and has tremendous power to help people relieve themselves from negative core beliefs.
