If life has felt particularly hard or upsetting recently, know that you don’t have to navigate it alone. As a trauma-informed psychotherapist, I work with people living with anxiety, depression, grief and more. I frequently meet with adults who have experienced childhood trauma, helping them to understand past experiences and thrive in the present and future. My clients have often realized that their current coping skills are no longer working, and in seeking therapy are taking an important, difficult and necessary step to feel better.

I am a licensed psychotherapist and certified yoga therapist. Through my professional experience, trainings, and clinical research I have found that integrating mind-body and spiritual practices into psychotherapy provides greater insight and deeper healing than talk therapy alone.

I have provided services to diverse population of people. A bulk of my experience lies with Children. I am well versed with Middle school age children. As a female, I love providing counsel and therapy to women about shared experiences on women's issues. I am also able to work with the elderly, minority communities, and men. I also believe that everyone is deserving of Affordable Mental Healthcare especially individuals who live in low socio-economic communities. It is proven that minorities in low socio-economic communities in particular, experience chronic stress regularly. Those individuals deserve all the benefits of Therapy.

Everyone goes through life picking up burdens—these can be unhelpful thoughts, difficult emotions, or challenging experiences. My goal is to help you understand how these burdens affect you so that you can create greater choice and intention in your life, increase richness and meaning, and decrease suffering. I believe the most important part of therapy is a trusting and genuine relationship between the therapist and client. My approach to therapy is collaborative and individualized. We will work together to observe what happens between us and how we each contribute to the relationship dynamic that emerges in the session.

Life provides opportunity for joy, creativity, fulfillment and love. Sometimes it is tumultuous when one is faced with challenges, conflict or change. Are you searching for meaning, balance, resolution or understanding as you face all that is present in your life? Do you feel lost in the changes? Is something stirring in you to have more? In exploring and being present with your emotions, thoughts and beliefs, it allows for a reparative experience, release of the old patterns and open space for new possibilities. It also promotes mental, emotional, physical and spiritual health and integration.

When you look for a therapist, you want someone you trust. Trust is the most important aspect of a good client/therapist match. It's a good idea to come in for a few sessions and get a feeling for the therapist, and I welcome you to do so. After you feel comfortable,you can start identifying the blocks that prevent you from living the best life you can live. I've helped people with depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress, histories of abuse, grief and loss, and people who've been hospitalized to break through their feelings of shame.

Do you feel alone? Even when you’re in a room full of people? Don’t know why, but you can’t shake the feeling? Are you adjusting to a new part of your life? Having feelings of hopelessness, low self esteem, or depression? Feel like you need a drink or a few every so often? It’s totally normal and I want to work with you to create a plan for a better head space. I’m so proud of you for taking the first step and looking for someone to talk to. It may sound paradoxical, but strength comes from vulnerability. So thank you for being strong and looking to be a better version of you.

I strive to create a space where clients can come and speak without fear and judgment about their greatest challenges and aspirations in a confidential environment. Do you find yourself looking in the mirror and wondering, "how did I get here?" then I might be the right fit as a therapist for you. As a professional practitioner I find that I am extremely effective with people trying to wear multiple hats in life; managing work and family, coping with chronic illness and balancing professional aspirations, trying to reclaim your sexual identity while being an engaged parent or partner.

It is in my belief that we are all intrinsically whole, deserving and worthy of love and meaningful connections. However, somewhere along the way we have incurred pain and hurtful experiences that have tainted our story and lens of how we see the world and ourselves. Sometimes the narrative runs so deep that we can’t stop the thoughts and feelings that flow continuously. In this way, everyday feels like a struggle. Perhaps you secretly feel lost and lonely or you struggle with feelings of anxiety, insecurity or sadness and are uncertain about how to navigate the complexity of your emotions. Wherever you are - your story matters.

Everyone goes through periods in their lives when they feel stuck with work and/or love. They can feel overwhelmed about the choices they have to make or feel forsaken by the perceived lack of opportunities. During these stressful times, they often lose their center, their sense of being grounded, and forget about the importance of personal care.

What type of Brooklyn mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Brooklyn?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
