My mission is to help clients recognize how to care for themselves in mind, body, and spirit and to develop a playful curiosity towards their internal experience. 

I specialize in working with aggression, addictions, trauma, and social anxiety. I use a variety of techniques including Modern Psychoanalysis, EMDR, Mindfulness Meditation, and Dialectal Behavior Therapy to help you make meaningful change in your life. 

I've been where you are. I'm currently in recovery from a history of drug abuse and crippling social anxiety. Psychotherapy helped me to learn how to open up, be interested in myself, and build a life worth living. I consider it an honor to accompany you on this journey.

Now is the time to take your first step towards freedom. Pick up the torch of awareness and walk, head held high, into the darkness of your unconscious mind!

MA
My Master's Degree is in Contemplative Counseling Psychology from Naropa University. This intensive three year program transformed me not only professionally, but personally. I learned to become more settled within myself so that I can be of greater service to my clients. The philosophy of Contemplative Psychotherapy is that simple awareness and compassion bring about positive change. I embody this by creating a space in which my clients can explore their inner and outer worlds free of judgement or obligation. I do not aim to change my clients, I aim to give them the tools and the freedom to change themselves. 

BS
I received a Bachelors in Science from Carnegie Mellon University in Neuroscience. This degree is the backbone of my approach, I bring a wealth of knowledge and cutting-edge research about the brain to my clients in order to help them to understand the inner mechanisms of their mind.  

Certifications

EMDR for Addictions
I'm received advanced training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy in order to specialize with working with substance use and addiction. EMDR is similar to hypnosis and can help you to overcome overwhelming urges to use as well as help us to better understand the underlying cause of your habit. 

DBT Skills Trainer
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a structured, evidence-based, treatment modality that helps clients to increase their life effectiveness. It focuses on mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, emotional regulation and distress tolerance. I use DBT to equip my clients with the tools necessary to make meaningful changes in their life. 

Meditation Instructor
Many of my clients benefit greatly from mindfulness meditation instruction. I bring a secular approach to meditation that encourages clients to tap into their present moment experience and to practice bringing curiosity and compassion to their lives. There is an overwhelming body of research that demonstrates that simply 20 minutes of mindfulness meditation a day can result in significant increases in life satisfaction and a reduction of symptoms of depression and anxiety as well as addictive urges.
