Announcement icon During the COVID-19 pandemic, I am providing teletherapy sessions (e.g., video and phone).
Hi! I provide my patients with a safe place for their authentic self to flourish. In this space, you can explore how: to move forward from your past; live a more satisfying life; relax and reduce stress; explore pregnancy concerns; explore how to improve your relationships; improve your self confidence; immigration and acculturation issues; process any issues with grief/bereavement; heal from trauma, cope with life transitions/change (at any age); explore your creative blocks; plan a healthy and active retirement; and talk about your dreams. You don't have to struggle alone, we can work together to help you get unstuck!
With 11+ years of working as a psychotherapist, I use an integrative and tailored approach to help you with your needs. I am an attuned and compassionate psychotherapist. I am a NYS licensed (LCAT: licensed creative arts therapist), registered/board certified art therapist, EMDR trained (parts 1 & 2) for trauma, and a psychoanalyst-in-training.
With all the inevitable life transitions that we all face, everyone at any age can benefit psychotherapy (or my integrative approach) 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.
