I am a certified Relational Life therapist (RLT,) training with Terry Real and have trained with Sue Johnson in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT.
My work is compassionate, interactive and decisive, always towards your greater authenticity. We focus on discovering, developing and achieving your goals and on reducing obstacles towards them. We can work quickly in a crisis or explore deeper issues. I love complex issues: the tensions within couples that stunt their intimacy. The challenges of parenting. The lingering sense that you cannot reach some vital aspects of yourself.

I am trained in Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) and Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), two powerful forms of psychotherapy designed to promote connection, healing and growth.
Are you living the life you want? Is your relationship a source of pain for you? Are you arguing more, trusting less, or finding yourself not looking forward to spending time together? Maybe your relationship feels stuck, like you're just replaying the same disagreement over and over again. Do you not like the person you are when you're in a relationship or wonder why you keep repeating patterns in the type of person you date? Human beings are wired for connection, yet somehow the people we are closest with also seem to cause us the most pain.

I use an inclusive approach and am trained in Emotionally Focused , Psychodynamic, Narrative, and the Ackerman Relational therapies.
For 15 years, I was a NYC public school teacher working in specialized high schools and that experience has informed my understanding of how our intersectional identities influence how we comfortably we move in our world today. I believe that personal, cultural and societal narratives can influence who we are and what we believe we can achieve. I use an anti-bias trauma informed lens and techniques to help all people navigate life’s provocations. I am also an avid gamer and use video & tabletop games, RPGs and other staples of Geek culture in my work with some clients to build empowering metaphors of their life experience.

I (she/her/hers/ella) believe that therapy should be accessible, trauma-informed and should help people lead lives that interest and challenge them. My therapeutic approaches are rooted in social justice with an emphasis on exploration through learning and storytelling. I believe that everyone is an expert on their own lives and that clients are best supported when they are engaged in shaping their therapeutic experiences. I support clients who identify as Latinx, queer/trans/GNC and/or neurodivergent, as well as young adults.

Life in New York can be challenging, especially if you feel alone or overwhelmed. You may have exhausted your usual coping methods and need someone to talk to gain insight and establish newer, more adaptive skills. The impact of a difficult childhood, complex family dynamics, trauma, a stressful/unsatisfying job or relationship, or parenting in isolation can add additional stressors. We will explore these and any other issues you have, so you can articulate what is going on, gain insights about your feelings, behaviors, and reactions, and figure out how to make lasting changes that will lead to a more peaceful and satisfying life.

It is through congruence, a genuine ability to empathize and to be compassionate, that I believe is how an organic developing therapeutic relationship manifests. My style’s core foundation revolves around a collaboration between Rogerian Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT), Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), and Internal Family Systems (IFS). It is with an open heart that I invite you to give yourself an opportunity at enhancing your quality of life through the process of self-discovery.

I also have specialized trainings in Emotionally Focused Therapy, Imago therapy, Sex therapy, and working with LGBTQ individuals and couples.
Therapy is about listening in-depth - to stories of our past and present, to our emotions, our affects, and our ways of relating. I create a safe space to listen carefully and empathically to help you understand how you have developed into who you are, and what gets in the way in the here and now. There are many ways to do this work. I believe the most important place to start in any modality is by establishing a solid therapeutic alliance. This relationship becomes a vehicle for exploring other ways of relating. I have a particular interest in childhood trauma, attachment, depression, anxiety, and relationship difficulties.

Psychotherapy and psychoanalysis are potentially useful ways to connect more productively with the myriad challenges of what it means to be human. The patients I work best with are curious about how to change their current behavior to reduce psychological difficulties, as well as to address how their prior history has influenced their current situation. I hold a Ph.D. in clinical psychology, and a certificate in psychoanalysis from the William Allison White Institute. In addition, I have also completed advanced training in Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples.

To feel unsafe, emotionally unsafe, with your partner can feel very unsettling and certainly unfulfilling. And to seek help around these issues can feel scary: As an advanced trained therapist in working with Couples and Families I use Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) that centers around restructuring a once secure bond by identifying negative cycles that have led to distance, distrust, fear, and hurt. Through EFT the couple learns to look to each other through a new lens. The relationship can now be experienced as the place for secure emotional connection where their partner is accessible, responsive, and engaged.

Welcome! I am a psychotherapist striving to deliver high-quality therapy that is holistic and tailored to you. My priority is providing a safe and comfortable therapeutic relationship.

As an attachment-based therapist, I help my clients explore their relationships and their emotional and behavioral patterns.

This includes emotionally focused therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, internal family systems and narrative therapy.
As a licensed and skilled family therapist, I offer services to individuals, couples, teens, children, and families. Based on my education, training, and life experiences I believe that the individual can be better understood through the context of their relationships (family, romantic, etc.). I believe it is more important to understand the meaning of emotions, versus whether they are right or wrong to feel.

Emotionally Focused Therapists
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an approach to therapy that helps clients identify their emotions, learn to explore and experience them, to understand them and then to manage them. Emotionally Focused Therapy embraces the idea that emotions can be changed, first by arriving at or 'living' the maladaptive emotion (e.g. loss, fear or shame) in session, and then learning to transform it. Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples seeks to break the negative emotion cycles within relationships, emphasizing the importance of the attachment bond between couples, and how nurturing of the attachment bonds and an empathetic understanding of each others emotions can break the cycles.
