Guiding You Towards Self-Discovery and Self-Healing

Therapy is fundamentally about making lasting, meaningful changes in your life. This process may involve changing the circumstances of your life or changing your inner experience by shifting thoughts and feelings.

We work together to identify and understand beliefs, narratives, judgments and feelings that may be contributing to current circumstances. We also work to increase your comfort with emotions and increase your ability to accept yourself.

Through these new insights and learnings, you have more conscious choices available to you. You become more intentional about the kind of life you want to live.

Positive changes feel possible.

You feel more empowered.

Whatever your goals, my job as your therapist is to support you, explore with you, and accompany you on your journey in a non-judgmental way. It may feel hard to believe at this moment, but the work we do together can be exciting and even fun as you grow in ways that can lead to a deeper sense of who you are and experience life more fully.

Therapy Office


I’ve been drawn to trying to understand people since I was a child. I think it initially began with my immigration to the United States from Italy, when I was four years old. I had to observe others in order to figure out how to fit into my new world.

I followed my interest in understanding people in college, where I majored in Psychology at Georgetown University. My interest and curiosity continued after college and led me to serve in the Peace Corps in the Kingdom of Tonga. It was during this experience that I knew I wanted to delve deeper into helping people and studying how people live – how they think, feel, cope, connect, grieve, behave in different circumstances. I was, and continue to be, in awe of how our internal landscapes shape the lives we live.

I received my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the California School of Professional Psychology in 2002 and from there worked in a variety of settings, including inpatient and day treatment facilities, hospitals, and outpatient mental health clinics. I’ve been in private practice for over 15 years, and I feel it’s a privilege that I get to share the journey of self-discovery with people on a daily basis.
