If you are questioning the decisions you have made in life, feeling regret about the past, feeling stuck or uncertain about where you are headed professionally or in your personal relationships, I can help.I am highly empathic and caring, but also bring breadth and depth of training and experience to our therapeutic collaboration. I am passionate and curious about getting to know you and helping you find substantive approaches and solutions to the various challenges that you encounter.
I completed my BA at Stanford University with concentration in philosophy and critical theory, Master’s in religious studies at Harvard University, and a Master’s in Social Work from Wayne State University, an advanced psychotherapy fellowship (Psychiatric and Psychological Specialties) with intensive training in multiple theoretical methods/modalities.
I am uniquely trained in multiple theoretical modalities based on my intensive fellowship/training: cognitive behavioral, psychodynamic, and family systems therapy. I am trained to customize combinations to uniquely suit the person sitting across from me. I have been highly successful in achieving consistent, positive outcomes in my clients.
A little bit more information about me
I love adventures of all kinds: exploring new ideas, experiences, and places. I am an avid traveler who has inhabited many parts of the world and immersed myself for extended periods of time in various cultures such as Berlin, Germany; Kolkata, India; and Geneva, Switzerland.
I enjoy sports of all kinds: I am an avid fan of baseball and basketball and was a competitive fencer; I also enjoy sky diving.
I love the arts and enjoy discovering ways of incorporating tradition with innovation. For example, I appreciate balancing traditional with more contemporary décor; fusion cooking that blends traditional recipes with new interpretation.
In general, I believe in the value of learning from tradition but being able to innovate based off of that foundation: I attempt to apply this to many areas of my personal and professional life. For example, I love traditional music (Celtic, Indian) that have been reinterpreted by modern artists. I also love independent films that pay tribute to the classics.
I am looking forward to getting to know and work with the Quicken family.
