About

If you, like many, are feeling any mixture of difficult emotions, struggles, anxiety, isolation, prolonged sadness, depression, or struggling with addiction or mental health diagnosis, you are not alone. We have all collectively experienced a once in a lifetime pandemic and it’s taken its toll. Whatever your struggle- you want to feel better: whether working in a coaching capacity to achieve your goals, therapeutically to address current difficulties, symptoms or trauma (past/ present), relationship issues, general stress… This is the 1st step to FEEL the FULL joy of life again: you’ve found the right place! Take that first step.
In my 15+ yrs. of practice using therapeutic coaching, CBT, motivational interviewing, strengths based approach & talk therapy (among other modalities) clients are empowered to meet their goals through exploration, increased insight & coping skills. My reputation has led to professional affiliations with Dr. F Hashmat of CA, among others (+NY affiliations).
I am a seasoned, down to earth, Licensed Social Worker. I create a warm & safe rapport for participants to grow, expand & explore. Whether your journey is one of healing trauma, ending unhealthy cycles, exploration, you are looking to grow & broaden your horizons &, or develop healthy coping- It is my Privilege to be here with YOU! Thank You! Let's Do This!
