About My Clients

I earned a Master of Social Work (MSW) degree at Hunter College in New York City in 2014. I have experience working in Community-Based Organizations, Universities, and Outpatient Mental Health Settings. I enjoy working with adults of all intersecting identities, but I do specialize in working with those who identify as LGBTQ+. My personal and professional journeys in mental health have shaped my approach, my areas of expertise, and my overall way of working.

My Background and Approach

My training and experience makes me especially qualified to address anxiety, depression, addiction, and trauma. I utilize multiple therapeutic modalities including Psychodynamic, CBT, DBT, EMDR, and Motivational Interviewing. Empathy. Validation. Alliance. Transformation. As a therapist, it is my belief that all these elements must be present for treatment to be successful. They provide the foundation for our work together. Empathy- it is vital that you feel seen, heard, and understood. Validation- I believe that ALL feelings are valid, and I strive to create a safe space for them to emerge and process. Alliance- therapy is most effective when it is a collaboration built on trust and unconditional support. Transformation- whatever you are struggling with, my job is to inspire change and help you transform into the person you want to be.
