Profile
“I am trained in EMDR, which is an evidence-based approach to working with trauma, and I am also trained in working with first responders.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Being a therapist is my second career but not by choice. While I was waiting to get licensed in New York, I worked in human resources for an investment bank. My own personal journey of loss and pain has helped me to understand trauma and how it affects each client differently. I have experience working in a psychiatric hospital, a community clubhouse, and a sexual abuse center for children. These settings have prepared me to work with diverse populations. I am trained in EMDR, which is an evidence-based approach to working with trauma, and I am also trained in working with first responders.
What should someone know about working with you?
During our first session, we will talk about your needs and goals for therapy. The client can use this time to ask me questions about my approach and experience. We will then decide whether we are a good fit. I usually assign homework to my clients and progress is determined by an increase in positive behaviors and thought patterns.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
My favorite continuing education courses are usually related to EMDR or IFS (internal family systems). I'm interested in IFS because I like parts work and I believe we all have conflicting parts within us that need to be resolved (this is especially true when working with clients who have experienced trauma).
