About

Hi! I love to work with clients who want their authentic selves to flourish! If depression, anxiety, or trauma (including racial trauma) are holding you back from thriving, I want to work with you. I provide my clients with a safe and objective space to deeply explore themselves, heal from past wounds, and build resilience. You don't have to struggle alone, we can work together to help you live your optimal life.
I use an integrative approach to help you achieve your goals. I'm an attuned and compassionate psychotherapist with 13 years of experience. I'm a NYS licensed LCAT (licensed creative arts therapist), ATR-BC (registered/board certified art therapist), EMDR practitioner (trained in parts 1 & 2) for trauma, and a psychoanalyst-in-training (NYS permit holder).
With all the inevitable life transitions that we all face, everyone at any age can benefit from psychotherapy to sort things out and make well informed choices not dictated by your past or society. Why wait for a tragedy to strike before seeking help? We can talk and/or use the creative process when words are not available to you.
