Profile
“I value creating a nurturing environment both in our inner and outer worlds and my approach to therapy is very non-pathologizing.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I attended Touro University Worldwide and obtained a master’s in marriage and family therapy with an emphasis in licensed professional clinical counseling. I am training in IFS Level 1 and I am enrolled at the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy Trauma Studies Center in the Integrated Trauma Training Program.
What should someone know about working with you?
I value creating a nurturing environment both in our inner and outer worlds and my approach to therapy is very non-pathologizing. My first step in working with you is to establish a rapport so it feels comfortable and you’re able to open up more easily. The second step is to befriend whatever it is you’re struggling with; I find it so healing and relieving to stop hating what haunts you. For example, I encourage my clients away from things like, “I hate how I shut people out; it’s ruining my life.” Instead, I take a more curious approach and ask, “How do you feel toward this behavior you have?” I maintain a very relational approach between you and others around you as well as the different parts within yourself. The third step is to get to know this relational part of you a bit more. After that, you’ll likely be feeling a whole lot better while we continue to work on your goals.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I have completed IFS Level 1 training and I’m currently enrolled in the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy Integrated Trauma Training Program. I am constantly learning and growing as a clinician and I have clinically rich interactions and consultations with colleagues. I believe that humility and the ability to consult with a clear clinical vision for treatment are keys to quality therapy.
