About me

I'm passionate about demystifying therapy and empowering my clients to understand underlying issues in order to transform from the root up. I aim to bridge the gap between sessions and to help form a clear path for my clients' progress in the various goals they have. I do my best work with folks who find themselves anxiously moving through life with a sense of narrowed awareness. If you identify with this, you might be living doubt and co-dependent tendencies, unable to relax into the present and enjoy a whole version of life.

My therapeutic approach is both nurturing and structured: I listen and offer support just as much as I offer appropriate challenges. In their work with me, clients find a mix of validation, accountability, and connection/humor. I have Eastern European roots, which make it easy for me to access both warmth and directness. I understand and welcome irony / amusement while trying to work on changing difficult habits. Even though therapy is often heavy and difficult, I believe it can be fun too. Lastly, if it helps to know, my work is inspired by Pete Walker, Peter Levine, Richard Schwartz, Janina Fisher, and recently, Daniel Siegel. I find that working with thoughts, imagination, and body all together is magic.

If you are feeling eager to understand yourself, to see yourself fully, and to practice self-compassion while changing harmful behaviors/thoughts, we're likely a good fit. I know finding a therapist is an arduous process, and you want to be in good hands. I really hope you find what you need!
