Seeking therapy can be overwhelming, and also relieving; it is an act of hope. I believe that the potential for personal growth and change within all of us is enormous, and I value the opportunity to work with clients as we weave between the present and the past to explore the impact each has on the other. I help my clients examine their personal histories and uncover unconscious barriers to achieving goals. I work with clients to uncover the stories that they have told themselves or have been told to them about who they are that keep them stuck.

I am an existential psychotherapist located in Brooklyn, New York. I believe that at their very core, human beings desire to live meaningful, spiritually-connected lives. Despite living in a world with unprecedented wealth & creature comforts, so many of us are suffering. So many of us try and find comfort from that suffering in distractions like alcohol or television. But still, that innate dissatisfaction with our everyday lives persists. Using an existential, spiritual approach, I will help you engage your suffering in a fresh way so you can live a more present, contented existence.

Do you feel powerless in managing confusing and intense feelings and difficulty in understanding why you feel this way? I am a psychotherapist specializing in trauma-focused treatments for children, adults, and couples. I believe that most people who walk into the therapist's office have difficulties that are rooted in trauma.

As a clinical intern, I strive to create an affirming and empowering space for clients to explore their struggles and strengths. Sometimes the stress we experience goes beyond what we can handle and it becomes difficult to navigate our daily lives. There are also times when we don’t understand why we’re struggling and end up feeling ineffective and frustrated. However, we all have the capability to grow and make progress in our own ways. I have experience working with individuals struggling with life transitions, depression, anxiety, self-harm and suicidal urges.

Life in the 21st century has forced many people to live with many hats and obligations. At times these hats heavy the head making life a little cluttered with stress, anxiety, shame, anger, self-doubt, feelings of being overwhelmed, and potentially depression. These feelings may negatively impact familial relationships, sexual relationships, work functionality, and social life. Everyone has the ability to live their best and most fulfilled life, even in COVID times. Sometimes people just need someone to talk to in order to actualize their goals and achieve their dreams in spite of life changes, past traumas, and anxieties.
