I have over 20 years of clinical and coaching experience and specialize in supporting clients dealing with OCD, anxiety, self-esteem or relationship challenges, and life changes/transitions. I provide teletherapy for clients based in New York and coaching services for clients anywhere in the U.S. or world.


My style is collaborative, gentle and practical. I see you as a whole person who has struggles and also incredible gifts and resources. Through a collaborative approach, we get clear on the patterns that are creating pain and struggle in your life and help you create a personalized tool-kit of strategies to heal and begin thriving. I use Havening Techniques as an integral tool to support you in both healing unhelpful patterns and enhancing your resilience and ability to handle challenges well moving forward.  I also pair Havening Techniques with positive psychology, mindfulness, mindful self-compassion, and CBT tools to provide you with holistic support.


With Havening Techniques as a base, I’ve also created a new model of supporting clients in healing from OCD, especially those who haven’t responded well to traditional treatments like ERP. I offer a more holistic, trauma-informed, neuroscience-based approach to OCD treatment that is respectful, empowering and kind. 


Two of my superpowers are attunement and creativity. I enjoy customizing the therapeutic and coaching process to you and your needs and getting creative in moments where you get stuck. If you are interested in therapy or coaching, please reach out to schedule a free consultation. Look forward to meeting you!
