“Be easy. take your time. you are coming home to yourself”- Nayyirah Waheed I find this quote matches my approach as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in New York. I like to bring a culturally and identity affirming, trauma informed lens to my work with clients.

By slowing down, we are able to find and care for the parts of ourselves that are often hidden, ignored, and might even be hurting the most. I see therapy as a collaborative process.

I specialize with working younger adults who are struggling in school or at work. Transitioning to high school, college, or a new job is a stressful process.

Relationships with friends and family are strained, as feelings of depression and anxiety make them stuck and prevent them from enjoying the world around them. Clients want to break free, and feel joy, satisfaction, and contentment. Clients want to live life happy.
