My path, like many others, has not always been an easy one. Along the way, I have acquired the wisdom and tools to not only help me survive, but to thrive. I am passionate about the difference that good mental health can make in the quality of our lives and our relationships — both with others and most importantly, with ourselves. It is never too late or too early to take steps towards mobilizing our inner strengths.
I am a parent, a partner, a daughter, a sister, and an individual. I have moved my household (which has grown over the years) to two different countries, 11 different addresses and back again. I love learning new things, traveling to new places and trying new foods.
I graduated from Barnard College with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and completed my Masters of Social Work at New York University.
We have all had times in our lives when we needed extra support. Reaching out for help is the first step. I approach each client with genuine interest and an open mind. My role as a therapist is to go on a journey with you to explore the connections between thoughts, feelings and actions. Starting the therapeutic process can feel overwhelming. Whether this is your first time exploring therapy or you are just looking for a fresh perspective, I welcome the opportunity to work together to gain insight and make positive change.
I enjoy working with all ages and stages beginning with children age 10 and older. Areas of interest include: new parents, individuals caring for aging parents, BIPOC advocacy, LGBTQIA+
Modalities of interest include: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples (EFT), play therapy, grief, loss and bereavement, trauma-focused therapy, psychotherapy, attachment theory, Parent Management Training (PMT)
These days self-care can feel like another task to accomplish — one more thing on the list to fit in and then feel bad about not getting it done. I personally like to think of self-care as those moments that I take (guilt-free) for myself. Some days it may only be staying 5 extra minutes in the shower. Other days, it’s making sure I enjoy a walk with a friend. I believe in the connection between the mind and body and love to fit in yoga where I can.
