The experience of being in a new country can be highly stressful, even if you’re there for good reasons. I combine an extensive background treating traumatic stress with proven methods of behavior change to address some common elements of the stresses of being an expat, including insomnia, anxiety and depression symptoms, weight management, and staying organized and motivated.

I lived as an expat in Paris for a year in the late 90s, traveled to the Kurdish region of Iraq twice in 2004 as a mental health consultant for an NGO, and have years of experience working with refugees, political asylees and their families as they arrived in the US.

I make the therapy work for you, rather than you having to work to fit into my approach. have extensive training in a number of therapy styles and coaching techniques so that I can make the experience a good fit for you. Between sessions I may also use email, text, phone, journaling, or homework to make our treatment more convenient and effective. (Or just old school talking may do the trick!) I strive to be competent in cultural/racial/sex/gender and political sensitivity. Consider this piece I wrote for The New York Times: https://tinyurl.com/y9umrazv
