I believe it takes courage, strength and persistence to reach out for help. I'd like to help you identify with these qualities you clearly possess. The human experience is a mixed bag of emotions which can sometimes be challenging to navigate alone. I am here as a compassionate, patient, committed therapist who is authentically interested in your story.

I'm passionate about working with individuals interested in developing a stronger sense of self, attracting healthy relationships, as well as improving intimacy, relationship connection and communication. Ive seen inspiring results in clients reducing anxiety, while better managing life adjustments; working through adversity, to make life meaningful.

My experience includes extensive training and work with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Sexual Abuse, Family Conflict, Divorce, Pre and Post Birth, Identity Development as well as Body Image issues. My Post Graduate training at Haruv Institute of Hebrew University provided me with skills in Treatment of Complex Trauma and Sexual Abuse.

I work with an eclectic approach, utilizing an array of modalities. I like to get to know who you are, what your needs are and how I may be of help. By assessing the presenting problem, we collaborate with what we think would be most helpful to you in moving forward. Sharing my clinical insight, we create a roadmap of how to address the identified areas necessary to address for anticipated growth and skills building toward gaining a more wholesome sense of wellbeing. I strongly believe that quality therapy provides a space where you can heal, and from there, be able to integrate the work and feel the lasting changes in your day-to-day life.

With Couples facing adversity and conflict, I utilize Emotional Focused Couples therapy as well as the Imago approach. By addressing the needs of the individuals in the relationship, as well as the couple as a unit, clarity, a deeper understanding as well as direction and vision is gained in terms of the next right steps in guiding the relationship.

The theories my clinical framework is built upon are Attachment based, Relational, Psychodynamic and Strength Based. By addressing the core of each individual, building on strengths and gaining insight into understanding the Self, you feel empowered and subsequently are able make better choices that lead to a more productive, fulfilling life experience.
Research has proven that the success of psychotherapy is strongly related to the relationship between client and therapist. My goal is to create a safe, nurturing space for you to explore whatever it is that brought you here. Together, we can identify your strengths, embrace your struggles, and create a pathway of healing, so you can experience a better life.
It would be my honor to embrace you on your journey towards growth and change. To see if we would be a good fit, I invite you to contact me for a free phone consultation. I look forward to hearing from you!
