I work with all demographics of clients, including LGBTQ + individuals, new parents, immigrant families, and young professionals.
My clients want to succeed on their mental health journey. Our first session is used for both me and the client to provide and gather information and consider what major goals we would like to focus on during treatment. We then begin to build rapport and establish manageable and measurable objectives in the following sessions. Throughout the process, clients will be prompted to reflect on their progress. If a client requests homework to be done outside of sessions, I will work with them on finding achievable tasks that will not overwhelm them but will help them progress toward their mental health goals.

As a member of the LGBTQIA + community, I can imagine the fear, anxiety, excitement, and confusion that comes with navigating sexuality and I consider it an honor to work with individuals in this community.
​Dealing with difficult feelings, thoughts, and situations can be challenging and isolating. I find so much value in people struggling with depression and anxiety, as well as those dealing with grief, relationship, and family issues. I also really enjoy working with people who struggle with body image and are looking to develop a better relationship with food, and a better relationship with the self in general. I am constantly learning from my clients who are the expert of their own lives. Additionally, I utilize an advanced evidence-based approach to cognitive behavioral therapy and my holistic approach aims to empower you!

I empower adults and adolescents as they grow in response to depression, anxiety, trauma, and relationship challenges. I specialize in working with adolescents and adults who have had their sexuality, gender, and relationships marginalized, especially members of the LGBTQ community. I practice from a social justice perspective because oppression often limits relationships, sexual identity, and sexual expression. I welcome and affirm people of all sexual orientations, gender presentations, and consensual relationship models.

I am well experienced in dealing with relationship issues, trauma, anxiety, grief, sexual abuse, ACOA, drug and alcohol/12 step recovery, LGBTQ specific issues, and depression.
I AM CURRENTLY NOT ACCEPTING NEW PATIENTS. Past experiences and family history can sometimes contribute to life struggles. Although I am family systems oriented and use cognitive behavioral techniques to help manage symptoms, I focus on treating each person uniquely and not solely addressing symptoms. I have observed success using a solution focused and introspective approach. I will listen to your concerns, explore options and help you find the best way to improve your life. In our initial phone consultation, we can discuss your general concerns and you can gain a better sense of whether or not I am the right therapist for you.

What type of White Plains 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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in White Plains?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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.
