*I am accepting new online clients who live in New York State. Schedule a free 15-minute consultation on my website. I look forward to connecting!*

Do you struggle with asking for what you want, saying no, and want to feel more confident and empowered? Do you want to communicate with more ease and authenticity? Do you feel insecure or anxious in romantic relationships, or find yourself questioning your worth and repeating negative patterns? Maybe you’re aware of these things and you’ve tried to change but don’t know how. Maybe you don’t believe that change is possible. Humans have evolved to flourish, but sometimes we get tripped up in the process of becoming who we want to be. This is normal, but it’s uncomfortable at best and painful at worst - and there is a solution for it.

Blossoming into the person you want to be means letting go of old stuff that’s no longer serving you. It also asks you to embrace your hopes and dreams. Both of these processes can be challenging. I’m here to do this work with you, at a pace that feels right to you. It’s not just my job but my honor and delight to accompany you on this journey.

I am trained in Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP), an effective form of empirically-supported psychotherapy. I would be honored to support you in clarifying your goals, calming your anxiety, stepping into your confidence, improving your communication, and living your best life. I look forward to connecting to create the future you want.
