What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I've always been curious about human nature and why we do what we do. Despite being the youngest of my siblings, I was the family's natural therapist. Family and friends would frequently come to me for advice and guidance; they knew they could trust me with their deepest thoughts and that I’d provide nonjudgmental feedback. I have worked at one of New York City's largest outpatient clinics as a clinical supervisor. My experience in that role provided me with the ability to serve and treat individuals from different ethnic and cultural backgrounds throughout the lifespan. I also provided oversight and training to my direct team of clinicians whom I supervised. It was vital for me to stay updated on the current research to better serve my clients and team. As a result, I continued to train and became a certified clinical anxiety treatment professional and certified clinical trauma professional.
What should someone know about working with you?
I am very passionate about providing actionable steps to aid my clients to feel better sooner. My clients can expect tangible support and techniques to help improve their daily lives at home, with family, with friends, and at work.
How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
I treasure my life experiences and how they have assisted me with becoming a culturally-sensitive therapist. My clients have told me that they appreciate that I "get it" and they can skip the steps of explaining nuances of language, life experiences, and traditions based on culture.
