I have been a therapist for almost two decades, and in this time, it has been a privilege to guide my clients as they learn, grow, and change. The therapeutic relationship is unlike any other because, for many, there are few relationships and situations in which you can completely and consistently focus on yourself. When you feel like you have too much on your plate, therapy allows you to come up for air, engage in meaningful self-reflection, and discover what you are made of and how you can be true to yourself going forward. My style of practice is authentic, compassionate, and straightforward, and I believe that a sense of humor goes a long way in helping people feel comfortable and connected. My goal is to make each therapy session collaborative, productive, and enlightening–something you look forward to attending each week.
In a relaxed, non-judgmental environment, we will work together to identify and overcome self-defeating thoughts and behavioral patterns, increase self-awareness and insight, and improve your quality of life. I am committed to helping you dig deep and do the work necessary to break down barriers, make connections, uncover answers, and build the mental strength you need to gain, or regain, control of your life.
I attended Emory University for my undergraduate education, majoring in English, and I earned a master’s degree in clinical social work from NYU. For the first seven years of my post-graduate career, I practiced and trained in New York City. I have extensive experience in providing individual, group, and couples therapy; and I have worked in a variety of treatment settings, including private practice, outpatient treatment programs, hospitals, and military treatment facilities.
I specialize in working with adults who are struggling with anxiety, depression, eating disorders/body image issues, chronic pain/chronic illness, pandemic-related stressors, grief, posttraumatic stress disorder, and/or have concerns related to relationships, parenting, family of origin, career, identity, and life transitions.
When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, discovering new restaurants, decorating my home, taking long walks (NOT on the beach), binge watching awesome TV shows, and quoting ’80s and ’90s movies, when necessary.
