My goal is to provide a comprehensive framework to help you facilitate significant life changes. Your first appointment will serve as a biopsychosocial intake appointment. During this intake, I will ask you to answer a series of questions to obtain detailed information about your current emotional state and history. By the end of your first appointment, I will provide an initial recommendation regarding the type of talk therapy treatment that is best suited for you.
My therapeutic orientation incorporates principles from ancient traditions, clinical research, and experiential knowledge to help you identify problematic sources of emotional strain and barriers to love, success and happiness. During your second session, we will create a treatment plan to structure all sessions thereafter.
"I love therapy because I believe it is the perfect problem-solving option for people searching for a confidential and effective support system outside of family and friends. My approach to therapy is highly structured, evidence-based, and comprehensive."
I am a licensed psychotherapist based in Charlottesville, Virginia. I help people to cope with anxiety and depression. I earned my bachelor’s degree from The University of Virginia, my master’s degree from Columbia University, and my post-graduate certificates from Harvard Medical School in meditation and mindfulness and New York State Psychiatric Institute. I am a certified clinical trauma specialist and clinical social worker. Since 2010, I've worked in a variety of clinical settings including family centers, methadone clinics, drug rehabilitation centers, and universities. In 2020, I volunteered as a workgroup leader with the Charlottesville Community Investment Collaborative. I currently supervise graduate students at Fordham University, Arizona State University, Ohio State University, and Tulane University as part of a field practicum program. I'm also a Pineapple Support therapist.
