Feeling “stuck” or even “paralyzed” in your career, daily life, or relationships (in areas even beyond romantic) are the most common reasons people seek me. My intersectional approach means we will understand how the layers of your identity (family, social, career, sexuality, ethnicity, etc) may both empower and inhibit your journey in life. I believe talk therapy can lead to deep and lasting changes, and medications, when thoughtfully prescribed, can lessen the intensity of pain and suffering. As a physician and a therapist, I want to know your preferences in treatment so that we can collaborate on an approach that holds space for both comfort and personal growth.
With empathy and an open mind, we will examine the parts of your life that are not serving you. Your readiness to discover answers to your “stuck points” will drive treatment, and I will be in step with you, guiding and reflecting on the journey before us. If you have arrived at my page, then you have taken a crucial step in this journey.
I am accepting new patients who are amenable to telehealth moving forward. Although I do not accept insurance other than UHC UMR, I can help my patients get reimbursed 60-80% of my session fees once they have met their deductible.
