Are you looking for a therapist who specializes in treating eating disorders in teens and young adults? What about someone who has worked extensively in treating anxiety, depression, mood disorders, LGBTQIA+ issues, and more? Through evidence-based techniques, I help clients unlock their emotions, face their fears, build confidence, and renew their sense of identity. Together, we will discover your motivation and strength to effect real, long-term change.
I received my Master’s degree in Applied Psychology from New York University. I am a member of the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals. I have worked in both out-patient and in-patient care settings providing direct individual, couples, and family therapy. I strive to provide quality, trauma-informed counseling.
Therapy doesn't have to be scary, reaching out is the hardest part. So give yourself a pat on the back and congratulations on taking the first step! Let's start your self-care journey together.

My therapeutic approach is centered around open and honest communication. I like to be playful while also being straightforward, challenging you to explore your blocks and find the path forward. Operating from a psychodynamic perspective, looking at you as a whole person, and creating a unique treatment plan formulated from the many parts of your identity are my go-to's in therapy.
