In order to shift anything, one must reach, with a gentle touch, the parts of ourselves that are able to transform. It’s only human to want to heal in order to function at our optimal capacity, whatever that might be for us. I passionately hold that we could all use a way to slow down our rapidly evolving lives—a way to hold space for what drives us forward, or slows us down in ways we’d like to speed up. Therapy is a space to peel back layers to help you move toward being fully expressed, in steady, easy participation with your life—even with its inevitable ups and downs and the in-between spaces.

Healing is personal to each individual—it requires both the space to go within, and a relational home. In our sessions, we'll create a safe, emotional space, welcoming all your human parts, in order to discover and work toward your goals. My hope is for you to leave sessions feeling resourced, deeper clarity, and increased peacefulness and well-being.

Born in NYC to immigrant parents, I’m aware of the stigma associated with mental health and its complexities. Outside of therapy, I spend time swimming and dancing with, and training my Shiba Inu, Kuma. As a trauma-informed Breathwork teacher, I love working with holistic and integrative modalities that deepen our mind-body connection. My approach draws on somatic, existential, transpersonal and humanistic modalities that are strengths-based and person-centered.
