My Story


My passion for working with young adults stems from previously working with college/graduate students at the Counseling Center at the University of Pennsylvania. I have expertise in working with young adults in their 20-30s, many of whom are working, pursuing degrees in higher education, or have recently graduated. 

​I am committed to fostering a warm, nurturing, nonjudgmental, and collaborative environment where I provide you with effective resources and strategies to help you feel more in control, empowered, and motivated to handle life demands. My therapy practice mission and values focus on building trust and providing expertise and reliability. I am readily accessible between appointments to provide coaching sessions to reinforce skills learned via secure HIPAA compliant texting, email, or video sessions. I strongly believe that an integral part of learning coping skills in therapy sessions, calls for practicing them in "real life situations" outside the traditional office setting.
