Clinical Social Worker in Bronx, NY

About My Clients

Are you feeling anxious, hopeless and uncertain of yourself? Does the world sometimes feel overwhelming to you and you're not sure why? Is it hard for you to identify your feelings and to communicate your needs with those around you? Gestalt and EMDR therapy offer the tools to heighten your awareness and leverage this for a deeper connection to yourself and others.

My Background and Approach

I am a NY/NJ Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Certified Gestalt and EMDR Therapist and TCTSY facilitator with over 10 years of experience working with diverse populations. My approach is trauma-centered and neurodivergence-affirming, and I pride myself on creating an environment that is safe, warm and down-to earth. My goal is to help my clients discern and accept the wisdom of their feelings, so that they can harness them to their advantage. I believe that you are the expert of your own life and that my role is to guide you through the process of self-discovery and healing.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Therapy is deeply personal and it's imperative that our values align to ensure that our collaboration is safe and effective. My work is trauma-centered, neurodivergence-affirming, sex positive, anti-racist/colonial, and body-neutral. I believe in transparency and always welcome questions and feedback.
