Therapy Style

Over my career, I have experience working with a wide range of mental health disorders including trauma, depression, and anxiety. I want to help facilitate changes that lead you to a happier and healthier life. Choosing to attend therapy isn't always easy but you don't have to struggle alone. My goal is to provide a safe, warm, non-judgmental space to help my clients discuss issues that are causing distress. I use an integrative therapy approach and believe you know you best. I meet my clients where they are, and we will work collaboratively to tailor your sessions to your individual needs.

Why did you become a mental health professional?

Becoming a mental health professional was and is my calling. As far back as I can remember I have always had an interest in psychology and helping others. I've seen firsthand the benefits of having a safe, warm, non-judgmental space to talk.

What are your interests outside of work?

Relaxing on my couch watching a good show, and being creative with painting or personalizing items. I also enjoy music, singing, and walking.

What is one thing you do daily that supports your well-being?

I always take time for self-care. Making sure I connect with my family and friends, go for a long walk, take some quiet to decompress, or just do something I enjoy.

Favorite organization/non-profit?

My favorite organization is the New York Mental Health Counselors Association. I serve as one of the chapter Presidents in NY. I have a passion for helping new counselors while also helping to improve access to care for patients/clients through advocacy work.
