Hi! I'm Paige

Welcome to my little corner
of the internet.

I'm a Licensed Psychotherapist (LMHC) with a therapy blog and an aspiring YouTube channel about mental health.

Who I work with

My work focuses on helping New Yorkers in their 20s and 30s who struggle with anxiety, depression, and/or self-esteem issues. I have found much of this stress stems from the idea that your life “should” look a certain way. And if it doesn’t, feelings of shame, disappointment, and fear can become overwhelming.

A bit about my therapy practice...

I believe in holistic health and the mind/body/spirit connection. You are more than a diagnosis, and it’s essential to look at how all areas of your life are impacting your mental health. Practical tools like mindfulness can stop you from getting caught up in a whirlwind of thoughts created by your own mind. 

I myself am a feminist, an LGBTQIA+ advocate, and an antiracist. There is no doubt that the state of our world, our environment, and the unjust racial systems our country was built upon all play a major role in our collective mental health.   

Self-awareness is an important part of the healing process, but connection is just as critical. Trust me, I know how much courage it takes to be vulnerable. But it is a key component to forming real connections and truly healing from what is causing you pain. We will go at a pace that works for you. And I promise, what’s waiting for you on the other side is worth it.

Therapy is process of learning and unlearning. You know yourself best; and at the same time, we all have blind spots. Understanding how past patterns, family history, and society has shaped you can help you make the changes you need to move forward.


In my free time

I enjoy learning to play 90’s hits and Taylor Swift songs on my guitar, filling my apartment with flowers and plants, and pondering the inner workings of my cat’s psyche.
