I have a holistic, outside-the-box approach to psychotherapy. I seek to illuminate the internal world of my clients, while helping each individual connect to others and the world at large in a meaningful way. I work to build an authentic, trusting relationship with each client, and aim to embody warmth, optimism, curiosity and empathy. I earned my Bachelor's degree from Vassar College, and my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Alliant International University (CSPP), with an emphasis in couples and individual counseling.
I work in psychoanalytically informed psychodynamic style, focusing primarily in object relations. In addition to my formal education, I have training in Somatic Experiencing, EMDR, reiki, mindfulness, yoga and bodywork.
My clients are: individual adults, adolescents, and couples.
