My greatest reward is helping clients explore ways to change their lives, allowing them to feel hopeful about the future. I work from a person-centered perspective, allowing my clients to determine the pace & direction of therapy. I have extensive experience working with people struggling with various issues, such as depression, anxiety, trauma, OCD , addiction, & self-esteem. I use CBT, DBT, & Motivational Interviewing techniques, based on the needs of the individual. I believe that we all need someone to talk with who will really listen & accept us as we are, without judgment; this is my goal as a therapist.

Prior to that, I worked extensively in treating OCD , phobias, and eating disorders at a practice in NYC.
I work with individuals who feel their lives are hindered by unwanted or distressing feelings, or self-defeating patterns of behavior, and who experience depression, anxiety, anger, low self esteem, compulsive or impulsive behaviors, or relationship difficulties. By establishing more effective coping skills and responses, positive changes can develop and lead to a greater sense of fulfillment. I approach each individual treatment collaboratively, exploring the foundation of the problem, identifying problematic patterns, and then developing treatment goals tailored to the unique needs of each individual client.

For over a decade, we've worked with adults in their 20s and 30s to help them overcome the emotional, behavioral, and mental health challenges of young adulthood. We have a keen understanding of the demands on today's young adults to succeed academically, socially, and in the workplace. Our goal is to support you in developing necessary skills and resources as you pursue personal, career, and academic success. When work or school performance is a concern, our focus is on the intersection of mental health issues with these needs, two aspects of a person's life that are rarely addressed simultaneously or understood as interdependent.

Have you, or your teenager, felt overwhelmed by anxiety? Are persistent feelings of sadness interfering with your ability to function at work, in school, or at home? Do you have difficulty getting sleep or do you feel nervous all of the time? Many of us are challenged by emotions that we have difficulty handling. In therapy, you can expect me to bring the best tools to meet your needs, building your coping skills, and improving your ability to manage those difficult emotions. If you experienced trauma in the past, I can help you understand the effects of that trauma on your life and help you function in your everyday life.

My approach to counseling is to create a safe space for growth and healing. I believe that growth and healing happen when people recognize that they have a circle of care (including clinicians) that show them empathy and support, that they can rely on and recognize that they have their best interests in mind. My therapeutic techniques include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, and Solution-Focused Therapy to create an atmosphere where the client recognizes that they are in control of their therapeutic experience.
