I believe the beauty of psychotherapy is that it can transform hope into possibility, and possibility into reality. It's brave to reach out, and I'm glad you're here.
My approach is based on my fascination with the astonishing power of your mind and the profound wisdom of your body, and my belief that when you learn how to harness that power and connect with that wisdom in the context of a safe, non-judgmental, and genuinely compassionate relationship, you're capable of creating meaningful changes in yourself and your life, no matter where you are on your life journey.
So many of us find ourselves caught between our desire for growth and our need for safety. I'm going to be upfront with you about my bias. I want you to be safe, of course, but if you work with me, I will be a fierce advocate for the part of you that wants to flourish and will work to support your growth.
Conditions and problems I work with:
- trauma history, including inter-generational trauma
- shame and self-esteem
- relationship problems
- feeling "stuck" or "lost"
- navigating life transitions especially at mid-life
- supporting lifestyle change
- body image concerns (I practice from a weight-neutral point of view)
I'm a New York State Licensed Psychologist located in the Albany area, but with telehealth, I am able to work with all New Yorkers. In certain circumstances, I am able to work with people who live in other states.
My practice is currently completely online for your convenience and safety. Sessions are conducted via an easy to navigate, HIPAA compliant platform, so you don't have to leave your home or office.
I work with adults age 21 and older and specialize in women's issues, but do not discriminate based on gender.
Depending on your needs and circumstances, your health insurance policy may cover our work together. I am currently in-network with CDPHP and Blue Shield of Northeastern New York. I do not accept other insurance plans.
If you would like to work with me, please contact me to schedule a brief initial phone consultation.
