I am a licensed clinical psychologist in private practice at PhilaPsy, where I offer psychotherapy for adults of all ages and specialize in working with individuals in early to middle adulthood. I have a varied practice, with people coming to therapy for a wide range of reasons. My areas of particular focus include working with young adults and adults navigating anxiety, depression, transitions or changes in life, stress, self-esteem, identity, relationship issues, interpersonal conflict, trauma, and feeling lonely, angry, empty or stuck. Across contexts, I provide identity-affirming, culturally responsive, and relationally focused care.
Your thoughts, feelings, experiences, the stories you tell and the connection we share, all contribute to this work in important ways. In a collaborative and curious space, I offer an approach that considers how our relationships, social systems, personal histories, and development inform the ways we experience ourselves, others, and the worlds we inhabit. Feel free to visit my website if you would like to learn more about my background and how I work.
I realize the prospect of starting therapy can feel stressful, maybe even scary. I aim to provide an atmosphere of compassion, respect, integrity, creativity -- and a dash of humor. I believe this work can offer building blocks for people to - at their own pace - begin to heal, find community, uncover a path for themselves, and experience living in this world in ways that feel more meaningful. If you are interested in reaching out, I offer a free phone consultation to get a sense of what you are looking for, address questions, and discuss possible next steps. Together, we can determine if we might be a good fit.
