I help clients remove obstacles to love–whether it’s loving yourself, your life, your career, or others.  My specialty is romantic relationships. I work with creating healthy relationships across the lifespan from singles, couples and marital therapy.

I’ve worked with clients with a range of issues, including depression, anxiety, goal-setting, familial issues, losses, transition, career, self-esteem, confidence, diagnosis of an illness, divorce, friendship issues, body issues and weight loss and more.

In romantic relationships, issues often include improving communication, social anxiety, trust, past relationship baggage, creating a dating action plan, healing from break-ups, unhealthy relationship patterns and learning about internal obstacles to love.

I’m a Licensed Psychologist with a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology.  I do Cognitive-Behavioral psychotherapy within a psychodynamic framework.

I am also a certified Life Coaching and Dating Coach, which I do via phone or Zoom, which allows me to practice internationally.
