Are you struggling with anxiety, depression, or stress? Just about everyone experiences difficult times in their lives. Sometimes these are temporary, such as during or after a life transition, and sometimes these are more chronic where we become stuck. Whether you are struggling with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, work or school concerns, or something else, I imagine you are seeking help because you are not feeling the way you wish to feel. I also imagine that you have hope that it can get better. I utilize evidence-based therapies (such as CBT) with my clients to help them make positive changes.

You will find me to be warm, genuine, and gently challenging to help you heal at a pace that is right for you. I believe that you have the capacity to heal, but may need help exploring, learning, and taking the challenging steps toward that end. You will be accepted, valued, and affirmed for who you are and where you are in your life. Rather than settling for short-term solutions, my approach involves identifying and addressing what is at the root of your struggles. Together, we will tap into your inner strengths to create new tools and strategies that will help you become more resilient. I have experience working with adults and college students in a variety of settings.


I earned my Master's Degree in Social Work at Columbia University. I provide affordable services through convenient and confidential phone and video sessions to clients anywhere in Washington D.C.
