“My treatment model is designed to meet a client’s unique needs, build upon their strengths, and help them ultimately achieve lasting changes.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
After graduating from college with a degree in psychology, I first specialized in organizational change in a number of industries, including consulting, start-ups, and a government agency. Learning about the needs of a team and how to help them grow and restructure encouraged my desire and interest in helping people more personally and on an individual level. As a result, I chose to make a transition in my career. I attended Columbia University and received a MEd in mental health counseling. Since then, I have worked in multiple hospital settings, outpatient treatment centers, and private practice, specializing in addiction, anxiety, and depression. Throughout my work, I have supported clients as they gain a deeper insight into their past and present and examine the underlying meanings and causes of their issues. Ultimately, my long-term goal is to help each client live a more happy, meaningful, and fulfilling life.
What should someone know about working with you?
Individual therapy provides the opportunity for clients to explore their feelings, thoughts, and behaviors in a warm and collaborative environment. My treatment model is designed to meet a client’s unique needs, build upon their strengths, and help them ultimately achieve lasting changes. Together, we can prioritize concerns, identify barriers, establish goals, change maladaptive patterns, develop healthy coping skills, and celebrate accomplishments. The treatment modalities used to guide my work include cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness-based therapy, and psychodynamic therapy.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
The growth of telehealth as a platform for treatment is exciting and provides a convenient opportunity for people to make mental health a priority. Whether it involves logging into a session from work, home, or elsewhere, clients can find comfort knowing that a consistent level of support is easily accessible to them. With the busy pace of life in New York City, telehealth offers an outlet for clients to work on their wellness during a time that works for them.
