“Therapy is a space one intentionally gives oneself with another person who is curious, compassionate and trained to maintain listening through these two lenses.  The relationship that results is unique.”

I have 10 years of experience working with individuals and families impacted by severe mental illness, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and suicide from my time running an exceptional team called the Metropolitan Hospital Assertive Community Treatment team.   

I also have 8 years of experience working in private practice with professionals, artists, and entrepreneurs who are experiencing mood disorder, insomnia, or relationship issues, and who have found it difficult to reach out for help from the mental health community because of stigma or fear of medication or that there would not be a “solution”/hopelessness.

I work with people on a wide range of issues. The following are a few of my specialties (this list is not all-inclusive):

  • Anxiety Disorders (Panic, General, OCD, Social)

  • Depression

  • Suicidality

  • Life Transitions

  • CEO/Founder/Creative Professional Isolation

If I have never been to therapy before, what should I expect? How do I know if I should go, and how do I start?

If you are curious about therapy, on some level you suspect there might be a benefit to you.  I believe that courage is more important than confidence. If you have courage, you acknowledge that there might be a risk for discomfort but you are open to what might improve the quality of your life.  You can then proceed step by step to become confident.
