About My Clients

Many of my clients are adults asking the "who am I" questions. They’ve come to therapy to explore, express & discover themselves, perhaps for the first time or perhaps as part of a lifelong process. Whether a relationship, feeling overwhelmed, being new to NY, sad, stuck or lonely, first sent them to me, what they all have in common is a desire to feel more authentic, more connected & more at ease, and to live life with more joy, passion and purpose.

My Background and Approach

My approach is relational, collaborative, trauma-informed and mindfulness based. Whether we are doing traditional talk therapy or incorporating meditation, breathing, or body-based explorations, our work together is always a co-created unfolding of personal expression and discovery. With over 25 years of experience, my training is extensive, with 2 masters (Social Work & Dance-Movement Therapy) & postgraduate training in multiple evidence-based psychotherapies, mind-body healing arts, and advanced certifications as a yoga teacher & yoga therapist. So while most of the time in sessions we may "just talk," we have innumerable tools and techniques on hand to help you learn how to better navigate life's challenges, feel better, heal better, and live better. I also have Art Therapists in my practice with openings for teletherapy. Incorporating art therapy engages the creative source inherent in each of us to enhance the therapy process of personal discovery, healing & growth.

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.
