I work with various individuals from various backgrounds and LGBTQIA + friendly.
Welcome! Entering therapy can be the first step to wanting to feel “like the old you”.. What are you looking to improve or enhance in your life? Sometimes life hands us emotions or feelings we do not know what to do with and it affects our lives. There can be stress from work, relationships or something that happened in the past which is affects us today. Maybe even a relationship we can’t get past . Our goal would be to work together to build a plan to grow and learn how to thrive. My approach to therapy is collaborative and integrative, pulling from different therapeutic approaches to tailor treatment to your needs.

I have extensive experience with BIPOC, LGBTQ , and disabled clients.
Between work, school, parenting, general life obligations, and now, a global pandemic, life can be stressful and overwhelming. Friends and family are all going through their own stressors, and it can be easy to feel unseen, unheard, and invalidated. You deserve a safe space to feel supported where you can speak freely, be validated, process your thoughts and trauma, and grow toward the person you want to be. Therapy is just that place, and I’m so glad you have taken the first step of your healing journey by reading this page.

My cultural competence extends from alternative (BDSM, polyamory, occultist, etc.) to traditional (family-oriented, religious, etc.) lifestyles.

I specialize in providing neurodiverse affirming therapy. What does this mean? It means that my therapeutic approach is to help you embrace your differences while still trying to navigate a neurotypical world. Usually the clients I see in my practice are adults who have trouble navigating life transitions and are usually on the spectrum of ADHD, Autism, OCD, Anxiety, and/or Depression. I don’t believe people necessarily fit in a neat little box that is labelled with a mental health diagnosis. I don’t believe that a diagnosis should be a means to an end for treatment. There’s no one size fits all treatment.

I attempt to awaken your self-actualizing tendency, via acceptance (unconditional positive regard), congruence (genuineness), and empathic understanding. Accordingly, my practice is strengths based. This focus sets up a positive mindset that helps you build on your best qualities, find your strengths, improve resilience and change your worldview. I acknowledge that traumatic experience can effect your current beliefs and feelings through memories and automatic responses. My couples work combines mindfulness, assertiveness and communications skills training and helps a couple to make the adjustments necessary to rediscover each other and resolve the conflicts that separate them emotionally.

Therapy is a journey and I strive to create a comfortable and safe space for my clients to experience that journey and grow throughout. Therapy is a partnership, between client and therapist, and should remain transparent, respectful and safe. Therapy is a space to be your true and unapologetic self and to feel support with no judgement. The foundation of my therapy practice is always person first. I am dedicated to provide clients with the skills and resources to promote healing and self-exploration. I encourage holistic treatment modalities and work intimately with my clients to learn coping techniques to apply in daily life.

What type of Staten Island mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Staten Island?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
