About

After working for the past 6.5 years closely with survivors of sexual abuse at a prominent NYC hospital, I have developed a strong passion for continuing my work with survivors. Recently, many survivors are being triggered by events in the worlds of entertainment, national, and local news. The increased reporting has created significant public awareness leading people to flashback to painful and traumatic events of childhood and adult sexual abuse. You do not have to live alone with those memories, thoughts, feelings, anxiety, and depression. If untreated, the effects of trauma can have a lasting life impact.
This can lead to strained relationships and barriers in personal and career goals. I can help you understand how your past history has impacted your present. You did nothing wrong; you may feel shame or guilt but I am here to tell you I believe you; assault is wrong; and this trauma does not define who you are or control you in anyway.
Speaking your truth in a private, judgment-free, safe space is what I offer. My approach is patient, warm, kind, and supportive. I will work with you to highlight safety, high risk behaviors, increase healthy coping skills, and process the trauma in a new way. In time, you will learn to trust yourself, others, and feel strong and empowered again.
