I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker specializing in depression, anxiety, personality disorders, the psychological impact of medical problems, eating disorders, and substance use disorder. I am also a CASAC (Credentialed Alcohol and Substance Abuse Counselor). Having been a hospital based social worker at New York Presbyterian Hospital, I have teamed with psychiatrists and other physicians and am comfortable communicating with referring doctors. I work closely with a Cornell professor of psychiatry in my suite, who will quickly do a psychiatric assessment when appropriate and provide medication treatment, if needed.

My client can struggle with stressors such as substance use to high-"functioning" depression; individuals that are 'going through the motions' to maintain their day-to-day life, inside they’re screaming. In recognizing the the void in care and understanding of marginalized persons' my approach in counseling is to provide emotional insight and reframing maladaptive thinking patterns through strength building.

The reasons for seeking out a therapist are unique to each person. Some of us do so because we are overwhelmed by a sense of anxiety, depression, or boredom. Others struggle with addiction, substance use, or issues related to work, intimacy, and relationships. Perhaps you are not quite sure what is bothering you but sense that something in your life is not working. Whatever it may be, therapy offers you the time and space to explore what troubles you. By speaking to someone who will listen closely and without judgment, together, we can find new ways to approach old problems.

I primarily work with adult and teenage individuals & specialize in anxiety, ADHD, depression, substance use, trauma, self-esteem, and relationship & adjustment issues.
I believe that healing starts with a strong therapeutic relationship and focus on establishing an accepting, warm environment filled with trust and free of judgement. This foundational relationship and your courage and willingness allow for deep exploration into your inner world. As a client, you will take an active role in the therapeutic process and together, we'll awaken the autopilot that many of us default to and move towards living life more intentionally and authentically. Through compassionate and curious exploration, we will bring awareness to patterns that may be interfering with your life.

I specialize in the treatment of what are often interconnected problems (mood and anxiety disorders, chronic pain, and trauma), as well as the treatment of behaviors that can develop in response, such as substance use (in an effort to self-medicate). I believe we all do the best we can to cope with pain, using whatever skills we have available. And yet sometimes our best efforts to avoid suffering can serve to keep us stuck retreading the same paths. Step by step, let's venture forward in our work together, letting suffering subside as we uncover meaning, learning to live more full and valued lives.

Everyone has a story to tell, but sometimes our own story can feel narrated out of our control, leading us to feel helpless and overwhelmed. Perhaps you are turning to maladaptive behaviors to self-medicate pain, grief, heartache... My job is to empower you to put yourself back into the driver’s seat of your own life. If we were to zoom out together, what environment or life challenges have kept you stuck? My typical client struggles with underlying trauma that may contribute to behavioral challenges (difficulty moderating substance use, gambling), relationship issues, low self-worth, emotional distress.

I received my B.A. from Yale, my doctorate in clinical psychology from Rutgers, and intensive full-time clinical training at Bellevue Hospital. My therapeutic style prioritizes authenticity, warmth, and active engagement, and I value the patterns that recur in our ways of being to shape our identity, behavior, and relationships. I work primarily from a psychodynamic perspective with roots in attachment theory, and I draw from cognitive-behavioral, trauma-informed, and mind-body modalities to complement an insight-driven approach with here-and-now strategies for cultivating resilience and relief.
