Announcement icon In light of the rapidly evolving COVID crisis and the increase in anxiety, I am offering video or phone sessions to any new patients.
Therapy is a process of growth and self-discovery. Through our work together, you will gain a clearer understanding of yourself by putting your thoughts and feelings into words. My style is interactive and collaborative and my aim is to create an environment of safety that nurtures psychological healing. I have over 10 years of experience treating adults and adolescents in individual, family and couples' therapy. I work with people who struggle with relationship issues, fears, anxiety, anger management, depression, trauma and low self-esteem. My goal is to help you develop a stronger sense of self-awareness, enhance communication skills and improve interpersonal relationships.
I believe in an integrative approach to therapy and practice evidence-based treatments, including psychodynamic therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, mindfulness skills, emotion-focused therapy, and cognitive behavioral techniques. Our work together can focus on developing specific skills to target distressing feelings and behaviors, or on exploring underlying problems that interfere with your quality of life.
As a multicultural psychologist, I realize the importance of tailoring the therapy to your unique needs. My primary goal is to help people achieve positive life changes. In addition to private practice, I am a Clinical Instructor at Icahn School of Medicine, Mount Sinai-St. Luke's and an Adjunct Clinical Supervisor at City College.
