Clinical Social Worker in New York, NY

About My Clients

Although open to all individuals, my ideal focus in therapy is working with adult clients experiencing trauma related to grief, loss, and bereavement. Broadly, this may encompass grief related to the loss of a loved one, coping with a recent diagnosis, life-limiting illness, or other major life event. My approach uses interfaith spirituality and counseling, which can help those in traumatic experiences, but also help those going through existential and spiritual challenges.

My Background and Approach

I will work with you to create a sacred space for healing to occur. While I primarily utilize ACT, grief-informed, and mindfulness-based techniques, sessions are tailored to incorporate additional therapeutic modalities that are evidence-based while meeting your goals and preferences. I approach therapy with an understanding of the interconnectivity of the mind and spirituality. Healing yourself spiritually also aids in healing your mind, leading to the healing effects of finding inner peace amidst trauma and grief.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe each and every one is valuable and worthy of dignity, respect, and kindness. I have a deep compassion for all forms of life and value honesty, integrity, and authenticity as a practicing therapist. I am deeply connected to spirituality and completed training through the Chinmaya International Foundation on Hindu spiritual care.
