Welcome to my practice.
I am committed to each client's process. My approach is relational and psychodynamic. This means that, together, we will address immediate concerns as well as explore how past experiences may be contributing to present-day hardships and barriers. In my experience, an effective therapy weaves past and present, tending to earlier wounds so they heal and cease paining you now. In the context of a safe and supportive therapy, we will have the opportunity to recognizing old inhibiting patterns and be given a chance to try something new. This will allow you to experience more expansive ways of being and a new ability to create the life you want.
I am a Licensed Psychotherapist (Clinical Social Work License No. 71159) and a Clinical Consultant. I obtained my Bachelor of Arts from the University of Chicago and my Master's of Social Work from Smith College School for Social Work. I completed a Post-MSW Fellowship at UC-Berkeley, and received advance training in relational psychodynamic psychotherapy at The Psychotherapy Institute in Berkeley, California.
