I have worked in the social work field for 25 years. I received my Master of Social Work degree from New York University in 1996 and received a Certificate in Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy at the Westchester Center for the Study of Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy in 2014. I believe in helping clients work through their everyday challenges in their lives, using a variety of treatment modalities in a non-judgmental, supportive, and comfortable environment. These modalities include, but are not limited to insight oriented, and cognitive behavioral therapies
Are you having trouble controlling worry? Difficulty with anxiety, maybe depression? You may have trouble concentrating, feel irritable, or have sleep problems.

Email/Text preferred. In a constantly changing world it can be difficult to adapt and come to terms with all the things that are happening all at once. It can be even more difficult to remember that mental health is an important facet of a successful everyday life. In sessions I aim to explore the facets of life that are important to you and help you find a sense of security and safety within our sessions. I aim to be a helpful facilitator while you lead your own recovery, so once you are no longer in sessions, you have the tools to help yourself.

These issues in turn often lead to significant problems in school, at work, and in relationships with oneself and others.

Coping with life stressors, healing from painful experiences, and making personal changes can be extremely difficult. Having support during these kinds of transitions can aid you in resolving problems, finding peace, and achieving personal goals. My practice is focused on working with women who are coping with the effects of past trauma and/or painful life events, as well as, women coping with health issues that are effecting their well- being. Additionally, I enjoy working with other therapists pursuing therapy for their own self-care and personal growth.
Each individual brings their own goals to the therapeutic platform and I aim to capitalize on unique strengths to collaboratively problem solve challenges in order to obtain healing and wholeness. Tailoring my counseling modality to your needs is an approach I value and I commit to building a safe and trusting dynamic throughout the therapy process. Whether you're seeking support for life stressors, wanting processing opportunities and coping skills development, or experiencing significant life events, we can work towards your recovery goals together.
My clients would describe me as empathetic, knowledgeable and trusting.

Together, we develop a plan best suited for incorporating your past narrative and trauma into your future story. I have unique specialities in grief, illness, adolescents and family dynamics. I particularly welcome teenaged individuals and their families.
