Profile
“Therapy starts by building a therapeutic relationship; it relies on being honest, nonjudgmental, empathetic, and developing a safe, encouraging, and trusting environment.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
While working toward my undergraduate degree, I was given the opportunity to work as a youth and victim advocate in Brooklyn as a way to earn credit. That was when I realized I wanted to work in the mental health field. I found myself wanting to learn more about how to help others while providing emotional support to those who needed it. I would say my compassionate demeanor and lack of bias contribute greatly to my current success as a psychotherapist. I have been incredibly blessed with the extensive training that has been available to me. I have completed training in grief, childhood trauma, sexual trauma, depression, self-harm, post-traumatic stress disorder, personality disorders, psychotic disorders, psychodynamic approaches, and dialectical behavior therapy. I have gained clinical experience working in a group home, a postsecondary school, a college, and a private practice.
What should someone know about working with you?
Therapy starts by building a therapeutic relationship; it relies on being honest, nonjudgmental, empathetic, and developing a safe, encouraging, and trusting environment. You know you best, so it takes effort on both sides in order to make therapy work. We will go through the consent process, financial responsibilities, confidentiality, and what to expect in session. We will explore your childhood experiences and memories and discuss your current concerns and stressors. Together, we will discuss realistic goals and at times, we may adjust as needed. I utilize a humanistic approach that encourages therapy to be client-centered, emphasizes looking at the whole individual, and focuses on concepts such as free will, self-efficacy, and self-actualization. I enjoy working with adolescents, adults of all ages, and couples.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I am most excited about telehealth evolving in mental health! I find that it can be an amazing way to reach more clients due to the convenience of not having to travel to an office. Sometimes, being in the office may be a better fit but that may not always be possible. The need for mental health services has steadily increased, and I feel that telehealth will increase the number of people who can access these services.
