About My Clients

Are you finding yourself asking the "who am I" questions? You're not alone. Many of my clients come to me to explore, express & discover themselves, perhaps for the first time or perhaps as part of a lifelong process. Whether a relationship, crisis or loss, feeling sad, stuck or overwhelmed, being new to NY or in a transition, first sent them to therapy, what they all have in common is a desire to feel more authentic, more connected & at ease, and to live life with more joy, passion & purpose.

My Background and Approach

My approach is holistic, collaborative, relational, trauma-informed & mindfulness-based. Whether we are doing traditional talk therapy or incorporating meditations, breathing exercises, body-based explorations, or yogic wisdom, our work together is always a co-created unfolding of personal expression & discovery. With over 25 years of experience, my training is extensive, with 2 Masters (MSW & Dance-Movement Therapy), abundant postgraduate training in multiple evidence-based psychotherapies & mindbody healing arts, and advanced certifications as a yoga teacher & yoga therapist. And while most of the time in sessions we may "just talk," we have a larger context of tools & perspectives to help you learn how to better navigate life's ups &downs. Tools that can help you alleviate anxiety & depression, deal better with stress & conflict, change your relationship with anger, fear, trauma, & grief, work with addictions & childhood wounds, improve memory, sleep issues & self-esteem, and more!

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I hold as my life's dedication a desire to inspire health, consciousness, and creative living. My core values of collaboration, connection and compassion guide me, and my primary goal is to form genuine connections with each client and for them to feel seen, heard, accepted, and respected. Non-judgemental and down-to-earth, all are welcome with humility and sensitivity. I have been honored to witness great transformation, growth and healing in my clients over the years and I look forward to being a part of your journey. ->> I am also the owner of a boutique group practice specializing in holistic psychotherapy.
