I started out my career practicing cognitive-based therapies such as CBT, DBT, and ACT .
I am a holistic, affirming therapist who sees many mental health challenges as survival strategies for a sick society rather than symptoms of a sick individual. I partner with each client to make sense of how you've navigated the world thus far. Then we'll work together to new ways of coping that go beyond surviving in an unjust world but toward thriving powerfully in your life and relationships.

I believe that each individual knows themselves the best, and therefore I aim to act as a mentor, teacher, and guidance role in my sessions.
Coming from a multicultural background where mental health was and continues to be heavily stigmatized, I quickly became committed to bringing awareness of mental health to as many individuals as possible. I believe that having a reliable and encouraging environment to process daily ups and downs as well as drastic life changes can make a significant and positive difference in our lives. Therapy can at first be a scary place to start, but through my conversational approach, I hope that therapy can become a space of relief, growth, and healing.

I specialize in CBT, ACT , interpersonal therapy, trauma informed methods, and motivational interviewing.
We all experience some distress or discomfort that can prevent us from feeling content and enjoying all that life has to offer. We're often stuck in patterned behaviors, thoughts, feelings, and relationships that only increases our distress and prevents us from being able to move forward. I work collaboratively with people to better understand the patterns of behaviors, thoughts, or feelings that contribute to our distress and develop concrete skills to feel content and enjoy life.

When people experience seasons of struggle, as we all undoubtedly do, sometimes therapy can be a valuable resource to help us find clarity, navigate uncertainty, lean into change and growth, or rediscover and restore what we once knew about ourselves. My philosophy in terms of treatment is one of partnership. I aspire to create a space, whether via video or in person, where you can feel safe to be vulnerably seen and heard, and my hope is that, at the end of our time together, you will feel empowered to live your life to the fullest, equipped with a diverse array of coping tools that you can confidently call your own.

I use cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, and acceptance -based approaches ( ACT and DBT) to increase flexibility in thinking and behavior, while understanding how relationship dynamics impact your life.
Therapy can provide new perspectives during a time when the world seems disconnected and life feels overwhelming. As a licensed clinical psychologist, I provide evidence-based psychotherapies for individuals struggling with anxiety, stress, panic attacks, depression, self-esteem, relationship issues, and life transitions. Living a life consistent with our values is a common, and often elusive, goal. To support my clients in this endeavor, I integrate evidence-based psychotherapies with relational and process-oriented techniques.

At times it may seem as if we're at odds with our mind. The thoughts and feelings we experience seem overwhelming. We can convince ourselves we're undeserving of contentment, love, happiness, success, acceptance , etc. Where does that come from and why is it so easy to believe? For those of us in the LGBTQIA+ community, there are added layers we need to work through, making it difficult for us to thrive. Therapy can play a meaningful role by providing a space to work through the layers, confront our hurtful thoughts and feelings, unburden ourselves of the past, and truly learn to thrive.

I utilize skills from CBT, ACT , mindfulness and trauma background to help my clients gain insight to repeated thought and behavioral patterns and understand where they come from and how to make genuine changes to them.
It can be difficult to manage the pressures of being an adult trying navigate the world; to determine the next career move, whether your relationship is going where you need it to, or if you are on the path you imagined for yourself. These big and beautiful questions can create feelings of anxiety, depression, low self esteem, dread and even feelings of panic. You want to find a way to understand these repeated patterns of feeling "stuck" or feeling "not enough", while understanding what it is you truly want and who you truly are. I can help. My clients are motivated to explore their understanding of self and the world around them.

I incorporate CBT, DBT, ACT , and psychodynamic and psychoanalytic therapy, etc.
No matter this is the 1st or the 10th time that you are looking for a psychotherapist, it could still be nerve-wracking. I am here to walk alongside you on this journey. I am culturally sensitive and inclusive. I believe that our identities influence how we experience the world and how we present ourselves, but don't necessarily define us. To better understand how external factors influence us and how to better understand and accept ourselves are both essential in the personal growth and healing process. Psychotherapy is one of many ways of getting there.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Therapists

Is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy evidence-based?

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is one of many approaches within the field of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). CBT is an evidence-based treatment framework that has been shown to be effective in treating many mental health conditions including depression, anxiety disorders, PTSD, and OCD.

What is the difference between Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?

Despite being part of the CBT family of therapies, ACT differs from other approaches within this field in several important ways: First, it emphasizes acceptance over change; second, it focuses on present moment experiences rather than past experiences or future events; third it focuses on what clients can do rather than what they cannot do; and fourth it emphasizes values rather than symptoms as targets for change.

What credentials will a certified Acceptance and Commitment Therapy have?

A certified Acceptance and Commitment therapist in Brooklyn will have completed specialized training in this approach at a university accredited by The Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies (ABCT).

How long does ACT typically take?

ACT is a relatively short-term therapy that focuses on helping you accept the things you can't change and commit to the things you can. It typically takes about eight weeks of weekly sessions with a therapist to complete the entire process. You may need to see your therapist weekly or biweekly, depending on the circumstances surrounding your situation.
