Psychotherapist in Massachusetts

Services:Adult Individual PsychotherapyProfessional Consultation

Hello and welcome. Thank you for taking a minute to read about me and how I can help you.


I provide individual psychotherapy to adults through telehealth based in Massachusetts, USA, using evidence-based approaches that are culturally sensitive, trauma-informed, and personalized to meet each of my clients' individual needs.


I work with clients from various cultural, racial, religious, spiritual backgrounds. I accept and support clients of all identities. I generally have a warm attitude and a calm presence. My style will make you feel welcome, at ease, understood, and safe to be you as you are.


My primary approach is client-centered, which means I will listen to you attentively and understand you empathically to help you unpack and sort out feelings and thoughts, find clarity, develop capacities and skills to deal with challenges and solve problems, work toward your goals, and provide support based on your needs.


When we meet, we talk about whatever you want me to help you with and whatever you would like to discuss with me. I explore and understand your feelings and thoughts to help you unpack, process, organize, manage, cope with, and work through them. Sometimes, we discern options, change what can be changed, and accept what could be accepted.


Psychotherapy provides a safe space for self-exploration and meaningful dialogues in which we talk about things that matter to you in depth.


My specialties include Anxiety, Depression, Trauma and PTSD, Self-Esteem. These issues might be related to relationships, stress, trauma, feeling stuck, repetitive patterns, life transitions, identities, school/work/career, fears/guilt, addictions, chronic illness, grief and loss, or existential questions.


I have years of experience working with college and graduate students, international students and scholars, professionals and early career professionals, immigrants, LGBTQ+ people, people who have religious faith or spiritual beliefs, and people who are from various racial and cultural backgrounds.


I believe long-lasting and transformative changes take place in our emotionally connected conversations. I see progress and changes as the fruits of exploration and reflection. This process takes time and courage. Many of my clients feel proud of their achievements in this process.
