I am not accepting new clients at this time as my panel is full.

Thank you for your interest.


Therapy is a form of education and support that can offer a safe and nonjudgmental space for you to observe, learn about and care for your mind, brain and relationships.

Through a relaxed, curious and often fun process, I work from a psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral and educational approach.

I incorporate perspectives from Mindfulness practices,  Interpersonal Neurobiology and Attachment Theory.
