Description (2950 characters max)
Does it feel like nothing is ever good enough and neither are you? You don’t have to feel this way - therapy helps. We can work together to overcome crises, learn to calm yourself down, build confidence, feel more hopeful, communicate more effectively, stop worrying so much about what other people think, build and have better relationships, feel comfortable in your own skin, be more accepting of others, challenge the negative voices in your head, worry less, take better care of yourself, overcome unrealistic expectations, advocate for yourself, understand yourself, and feel whole! Send me a message today.

My areas of focus include attachment issues (isolation, codependency); perfectionism; compulsions (overeating, dieting, work, sex); trauma (e.g. rape, abuse, car accidents...); couples (interracial and interfaith); and cross-cultural issues. I have a warm and direct style.

Passion for my work combines my interests in the body/mind connection, love of diverse cultures, and fascination with human nature. I love what I do and truly respect my clients' willingness to bring their inner world to the forefront. I look forward to hearing from you.
