Direct, empathic, collaborative, trauma-informed. The purpose of therapy, from my perspective, is working to gain understanding about yourself and the underlying rationale for what makes you you so that you can take steps to be the best version of yourself. I tailor my approach to each individual's unique needs and work with them to actively restructure the patterns of thought and behavior that are keeping them stuck and unhappy, allowing them to move through life with a greater sense of freedom, clarity, confidence and purpose. My ultimate goal is to empower individuals to live fuller, more satisfying lives.

Traveling, cooking, reading, spending time with family and friends
When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi. Each read gives a new perspective and renewed appreciation for life.
I do not usually go to restaurants more than once in New York because there are so many amazing places to try. Locanda Verde always makes me want to go back though.
