You may come to treatment for many different reasons and might often share the commonality with others that anxiety or other symptoms are getting in the way of the life you hope to live. I enjoy helping people such as yourself manage this anxiety, cope with symptoms, and navigate the day-to-day along with those more complex challenges that may bring you into treatment.

My approach

I would enjoy helping you conquer life’s challenges in both a pragmatic and solution-focused manner, utilizing cognitive-behavioral therapy techniques to help you manage or move past symptoms while also helping you find meaning, purpose, and connection in an increasingly isolated world.

Why I love this work

It is always a privilege to truly hear and see an individual in therapy and that includes you. For this, I count myself incredibly fortunate to help you along this journey.

What I want for you

I want you to live a rich and meaningful life while appreciating the ever-changing tide of what life brings us. I want you to live bravely and boldly while feeling confident and assured that whatever life may throw your way, things will be OK.

My specialties, background, and personal interests

I specialize in cognitive behavioral therapy approaches (traditional CBT, ACT, DBT, ERP) for anxiety disorders and obsessive-compulsive disorders.

My clinical training has primarily focused on the assessment and recovery-based treatment for serious mental illness (SMI). I am currently completing my post-doc in early psychosis at the University of California, San Francisco where I work with families and teenagers in a research setting. I have been trained at Harvard Medical School/Massachusetts Mental Health Center, Veteran’s Health Administration and community clinics.

In my free time, I enjoy long strolls in the city, modern dance, art museums, traveling, theatre, and the cinema as well as spending time with my charming and soulful cat, Fritz.
