Works With:

Young Adults, Adults

If you are interested in therapy, it is likely because you are ready for change. Reaching out to a therapist is a powerful first step in creating a space for yourself where you can face the questions and challenges you have about your life and relationships.

I work one-on-one with adults of all ages including young adults experiencing anxiety, depression, pain, grief, anger, trauma, and relationship struggles. During your initial sessions, we will develop a treatment plan that works for you and your needs. This treatment plan will integrate a variety of therapeutic models, including attachment theory, ego psychology, self-psychology, psychoanalysis. Child development, family dynamics and socio-cultural factors will also play an important role in shaping my understanding of your concerns and treatment needs.

I believe that therapy should be a place where you are free to explore and define your needs without worrying about saying the right and wrong things. My role as a therapist is to learn how best to listen to my clients rather than imposing one-size-fits-all solutions. With this support, my clients not only learn to speak more openly and freely, but also to listen to themselves in new ways, and with the kind of openness that leads to transformative change.

I am a clinical therapist working under the supervision of Dr. Karina Zorzella (Clinical Psychologist).
