About

***My practice is currently full***I have expansive experience working with diverse populations on adjustment issues across the lifespan, emotional distress, problematic relationship patterns, family-related stress, body image concerns, and sexual trauma. Unique to my practice is a focus on the impact of intersections of race and gender. I have provided treatment in a variety of settings including, college counseling centers, community mental health settings, residential treatment programs, forensic inpatient sites, and partial hospital programs.
In our work together, I look to facilitate a process of discovery that empowers you to realize your personal goals. My therapeutic approach is culturally affirming, solution-focused, and strength-based. While I employ a wide range of techniques in my practice, my work with you will be highly individualized and focused on your specific concerns.
My clients describe me as warm, empathic, attentive, and astute in my approach to understanding problems and collaboratively exploring solutions. My practice is located in the Financial District and is easily accessible by public transportation.
