“Pain is inevitable. Suffering is Optional.” Family dynamics, life challenges and transitions, chronic illness, as well as our own cognitive, emotional, and biological vulnerabilities may sometimes cause us pain. However, the way we think and cope with these situations and susceptibilities can sometimes exceed that of the actual events, and may eventually lead to prolonged suffering and interfere with life satisfaction. Recovery—from any significant condition or life challenge—is a gradual, progressive, and ongoing process of restoring balance in physical, emotional, and spiritual functioning.
As a native New Yorker, I deeply understand how the fast-paced world can leave us often feeling empty, depleted, irritable, and disconnected.

My approach to therapy is strength-based, trauma informed, and rooted in cultural humility. I also employ a variety of mindfulness and insight-oriented interventions to provide a nonjudgmental brave space for openness and exploration.
I have worked 5 years as a clinical social worker within the healthcare setting. I've provided support to individuals and families surrounding psychosocial issues including but not limited to managing postpartum depression, depression, anxiety, grief, domestic violence and coping with chronic health issues. I am bilingual and able to hold sessions in English, Spanish or "Spanglish."
