About

Change and growth are elusive processes and more often than not, seem steps away from us despite our best efforts. Navigating through the avenues of life can be challenging and at times, discouraging, therefore we need someone in our corner to helps us on the journey towards change, growth and self-discovery. I am a Licensed Psychotherapist in NY and NJ, a Certified Yoga Teacher and Entrepreneur with a goal to help individuals optimize their mental health.
My approach though electric, I primary utilize a Client-Centered Approach, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). I assess symptoms that cause emotional and physical discomfort and assists clients in clearly understanding their thought patterns, feelings and behaviors while collaboratively find solutions.
I am interested in the person as a whole and consider the mind, body and spirit connection to increase awareness, insight, and understanding of patient's view of self and the world. My goal is to create a safe, non-judgmental and warm environment to promote open expression and self-discovery.
