Clinical Social Worker in New York, NY
Supervised by Amanda Laukant, LCSW


About My Clients

My specialized interests include working with young adults and adults who have a history of sexual trauma, anxiety, depression, and mood disorders. I hope to work with clients who are motivated to come to therapy and discuss the topics they feel are important. I work well with clients who have low self-esteem as I am extremely passionate about an empowerment approach with clients.

My Background and Approach

I decided to become a therapist the day my own therapist changed my life. She gave me hope to continue and I was amazed how one person could provide that for another. I hope to create a welcoming and safe environment for you to feel comfortable logging on and talking about whatever is coming to mind. I strive to lead by example and demonstrate the power of empathy. If I am able to show you empathy, then maybe you can give yourself some empathy too.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a proud member of the LGBTQIA+ community. I am familiar with how challenging it can be to find a clinician that can not only empathize with, but actually understand your experiences. Above anything in the world, I value empathy and respect. You never know what someone is dealing with in the quiet of their mind. When I am not working, I love to spend time with my Shiba Inu, Nova; read some thrillers on my kindle; and do tarot readings for myself.
