About

My aim is to create and foster a warm and connected working relationship with each client, in order to build trust and engender hope for the journey ahead. Together we’ll explore what has brought you to this juncture, at this point in time. What has made you take action now? How would you like your life to look? I believe in strengthening our innate abilities and developing new skills to navigate through emotional pain. With creativity and compassion, we can resolve problems, heal emotional wounds, and discover new strengths to face obstacles. I work with children, adolescents, and adults including parents, couples, and families.
Using evidence-based therapies and brain research, I treat depression, anxiety, relationship conflict, ADHD, and reprocessing trauma. I am an intensively trained Dialectical Behavior Therapy therapist, with other specialties in Accelerated Resolution Therapy for trauma, Internal Family Systems, Polyvagal Theory, Parent Management Training, and mindfulness.
I have extensive experience in different clinical settings and am committed to finding an integrated approach that works for you. Right now, I am exclusively offering telehealth services. Future office locations: Cold Spring, NY and Brooklyn.
