Profile
“Whether you are experiencing anxiety, depression, or any other issues, I work to create a safe and nonjudgmental space where you can begin to explore some of the things that have been getting in your way.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I have always been interested in understanding people and curious about what causes people to behave the way they do. As a child and young person, I was exposed to family members who had severe mental health challenges. This laid the foundation for my desire to help others overcome their own difficulties and heal from trauma. I've learned so much from my own journey as a client in psychodynamic psychotherapy and I have great empathy for my clients. I have a master’s in social work from New York University as well as a master’s in education from Brooklyn College. In addition, I have a certificate in psychoanalytic psychotherapy from the Training Institute for Mental Health where I attended a three-year course of study in psychoanalysis. Earlier in my career, I worked as a school psychologist in the New York City public school system.
What should someone know about working with you?
When we first meet, I will conduct an intake where I will ask you several questions. This enables me to gather information about you, which gives us lots of jumping-off points. This process helps identify a few major themes and challenges for us to explore together. I treat all my clients as unique individuals. Whether you are experiencing anxiety, depression, or any other issues, I work to create a safe and nonjudgmental space where you can begin to explore some of the things that have been getting in your way. Together, we can work to discover old patterns of living and relating that may be holding you back from feeling confident and achieving your goals. I believe in the power of therapy to help you heal, grow, and become your best self. I look forward to meeting you!
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I am a life-long learner. I loved my three-year postgraduate course in psychoanalytic psychotherapy as it helped mold my approach as a clinician. I continue to learn new modalities of treatment, such as mindfulness, which I incorporate into my work.
