I have the privilege of working with individuals who are living with anxiety, depression and other uncomfortable feelings that may develop because of a recent life event. I don’t believe someone has to be in crisis to come to therapy, however; oftentimes, individuals I meet with are managing feelings that have been building up over time. I particularly like to work with college and graduate students, international students, as well as young adults in general. I have experience working with medical professionals such as physicians, nurses and medical trainees.

I believe that addressing feelings and understanding where they stem from, and how to manage them, can help someone navigate life’s challenges in relationships, work, school, and beyond. I strive to create a safe, non-judgmental and confidential environment for individuals to explore what’s on their mind.

I earned my doctorate in Clinical Psychology from William James College. I have a master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from Temple University and a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology and English writing from the University of Pittsburgh. I completed a Postdoctoral Fellowship in Clinical Psychology and a Predoctoral Internship in Clinical Psychology at Pennsylvania Hospital, and was also a Fellow at the Psychoanalytic Center of Philadelphia.

I have done training at a few college counseling centers, including MIT and CAPS at UPenn. Recently I was an Assistant Professor and Director of Behavioral Health Wellness Education at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. At UNMC I helped establish a Wellness Program for medical professionals and trainees.

I obtained a certificate in Mind Body Medicine (mindfulness and meditation) from the Benson Henry Institute, which is affiliated with MGH and Harvard Medical School

I look forward to meeting you and potentially working together to uncover not just what might be holding you back or keeping you up at night, but your strengths as well.
