Are you bothered by your emotions, thoughts and behaviors? Is it hard to make it through a day? Do you feel that you are falling apart? Experiencing grief, loss, death of a pet, depression, anxiety, stress? I have great compassion for all of the above. Life can be tough and uncertain. Let us work together towards better days. I will guide you through your struggles and assist you with lessening your symptoms and managing your stressors. You can learn how to break unhelpful patterns, soften destructive thoughts and become "unstuck", all in a non-judgmental, warm, safe, supportive environment.

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with over 10 years of experience between NYC and now, Buffalo. I specialize in grief and loss, adjusting to life changes, depression, anxiety and stress. In addition, I provide pet bereavement services for those devastated by the loss of a beloved pet companion.

Developing a sense of trust, safety and connection with you are my core therapeutic values. Your counseling will be matched to you, individually. Collaboratively, we will find your strengths and empowerment, as well as practices, techniques and skills in hopes of increasing contentment, peace and your quality of life.
