About

Due to licensing rules, I can only see New York clients! I am empathetic when working with diverse, adult populations facing situational & mental health challenges. I've been on both sides of "the therapy couch" as a Survivor with Bipolar I Disorder & as a counselor. I completed my internship assisting Survivors of Domestic Violence & have a great deal of knowledge about Healthy Relationships vs Unhealthy ones. I'm comfortable helping folks facing anxiety, depression, psychosis & trauma. I can assist in clarifying achievable goals & I can build trust. It's an honor to be able to help others navigate the curveballs life will throw!
I can help by listening, validating, exploring, gently challenging & collaborating with you to arrive at solutions. I specialize in working with Survivors of Domestic Violence, folks living with mood disorders and those who want to better manage their anger/process their trauma. Boundaries & clear, effective communication are essential to my practice.
Take a deep breath and acknowledge that asking for help isn't easy. It takes strength to be honest. I commend you for making it this far in your search for a therapist that will be the right match for you!
