About

You are like all other people, like some other people, and like no one else. I believe it's far more important to know the person who has a problem, than to know which problem the person has. I am warm, passionate, and committed. I work with patients in a transparent, genuine, and collaborative way. I was trained at Columbia University and Mount Sinai Hospital. I have had many opportunities to lend my insight and support in order to provide a holistic approach to wellness. My experiences have shown me that therapy can be beneficial and useful to people experiencing different levels of distress.
My areas of expertise include depression, anxiety, interpersonal difficulties, grief and loss, trauma, and existential concerns. I have had experiences that allow me to explore the challenges of various religious, cultural, and ethnic groups. My approach is multiculturally informed and I am dedicated to creating a safe and supportive space.
I recognize the importance of offering a personalized experience to each of my clients. I am here to meet you wherever you are at in your process. I am here to listen, reflect, and explore with you in an effort to grow through what you go through.
