About me

What does the BEST version of yourself look like? What’s getting in the way of becoming that best version of yourself? Is it limiting beliefs? Perfectionism? People-pleasing? Self-doubt? Imposter syndrome? Trust me, you're not alone!

My mission is to help you recognize, understand, and overcome these—sorry—bullsh*t belief systems so that you feel more empowered to become the most confident, authentic version of yourself. If you desire fulfillment in your life, and are willing to do the work to become the best version of you, welcome! I’m so glad you’re here. I work with young adults to find their purpose and reach their full potential.

Many of my clients are passionate about self improvement, are willing to get comfortable with the uncomfortable, and are ready to re-prioritize themselves in their lives. Therapy with me is a balance between thinking and action. I leave space for reflection and curiosity, while integrating goal setting and accountability.

I also weave holistic approaches into my practice, like mindfulness, meditation, journaling, visualization, and even astrology or tarot/oracle cards if you're open! Now, what are you waiting for?

I am licensed in New York with 4 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with anxiety, depression, difficulties with motivation, self esteem, and self-compassion, among many other difficulties. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am proud of you for getting started!
