You may be doing everything right, yet you feel incomplete. You may fall into the faulty pattern of thinking that the next thing you accomplish will give you a sense of wholeness. However, you are often left feeling empty and disappointed once again. For most of my clients, reaching out feels like one of the hardest things to do because the last thing they want to be seen as is needy and unsure. Yet, once they do, they are met with a sense of relief, and a feeling of coming home.
 I can understand what it feels like to be unclear about life's direction. It can be confusing and overwhelming. Most of my clients, despite being independent and clear minded, struggle to access their strengths and meet their goals. I help women looking to feel whole inside. Individuals seeking a sense of meaning and fulfillment;
Moms looking to be more present and women looking to develop or enrich relationships. My clients come to me in that struggle and I love being able to help them find their way through. To find out more visit or call me to to see if I can help you!
 I help people learn to love their themselves and create joyous relationships. I specialize in helping people recover from "not-being-enough-ness", anxiety disorders and trauma. The disempowerment and lack of balanced identity in perfectionism, the emotional roller-coaster of trauma, & the frustration of being in unsatisfying relationships-these don't have to define your life forever. I've had the opportunity to work with individuals struggling with these issues for the past 8 years. I have seen clients transcend challenges and limitations & achieve a sense of inner peace while enriching their lives. My therapeutic approach is a blend of utmost compassion while being firm and committed to my clients therapeutic goals toward healing.

I love working with people with anxiety because they tend to be intelligent, driven,intuitive people who shine with strength & accomplish so much when channeling their energy in healthier ways. Survivors of trauma are some of the most courageous people I've ever met, although they may have a hard time believing it.

While working at Inpatient and Outpatient Programs, I developed and ran groups in learning healthy patterns of interacting with the universe and people. Working with survivors of trauma inspired me to create an educational program and resources for addressing trauma and raising awareness. I am a Certified Trauma Treatment Specialist through Haruv Institute as well as an Associate therapist at the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy's Trauma Program in NYC.
