A Little About Me

I enjoy working with a wide range of clients, from teens to couples and individual adults. I offer an approach that is warm, engaged, direct, and client-centered. I see us as co-explorers in this work together, holding myself accountable to show up in a real and authentic way with you. I believe you are the expert of your own experience and that each of us holds an innate wisdom when it comes to healing ourselves. I genuinely take an interest in my clients' lives and experience it as a privilege to sit with those dealing with challenging life experiences.

I believe that because much of our wounding can come from how we relate to others, that our healing can come through relationship too. In my own experience as both client and therapist, and as the research shows, the relationship between client and therapist can be a catalyst for this type of healing. I have a strong interest in how humans relate to and communicate with each other, whether it be in couples, friendships, families, or workplace dynamics. I am interested in working with clients who are curious and engaged in the process fo self-growth, even if resistance is also present.

My practice is very much influenced by Buddhist philosophy, Gestalt Awareness Practice and Parts Work, Feminist theory, Liberation Psychology, Psychodynamics and Attachment theory. Much of my training involves couples work and trauma work. I am second generation Greek-American and consider myself bicultural. Before becoming a therapist, I had a full time career performing and teaching as a musician.

Please contact me to set up a free 20 minute consultation to see if we might be a good fit. I look forward to hearing from you.
