Profile
“My goal is to build a trusting and positive therapeutic relationship with you, fostering a space in which you feel safe and heard through acceptance, kindness, and curiosity.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
My professional journey began as a caseworker in foster care and later as a service coordinator for early intervention. After receiving my MSW from Hunter College, I pursued a clinical role in private adoption. Working with clients throughout the adoption continuum — from full options counseling with birth parents to home studies and post-placement support for adoptive families —was both rewarding and invaluable. I found it a privilege to bear witness to the joy, pain, and resilience of this intimate human experience. One of the most fulfilling aspects of all my roles has been the one-on-one in-depth work with clients. This realization inspired me to deepen my skills in the realm of psychotherapy and I began working as a psychotherapist at an outpatient mental health clinic in Brooklyn. There, I gained experience supporting individuals in the process of self-discovery, those who are healing from loss and trauma, and those who are navigating complex emotions and relationships.
What should someone know about working with you?
The beginning of our work together will focus on what is bringing you to therapy at this time and will shift into learning all about you (past, present, hopes, fears). My goal is to build a trusting and positive therapeutic relationship with you, fostering a space in which you feel safe and heard through acceptance, kindness, and curiosity. My treatment approach is psychodynamic, insight-oriented, strengths-based, and supportive. I believe that therapy is a collaborative process; together, we will examine the patterns and themes of your life, working toward greater understanding and improved quality of life. I’d like to add a note for those who have been touched by adoption: While the outside world tends to mainly focus on the joy in adoption, I understand that the reality is much more complex and that there is also inherent loss for all members of the adoption triad.
What advice would you give to someone who is hesitant to try therapy?
It takes a great deal of strength and insight to even consider seeking therapy. Give yourself credit for getting started! It is normal to feel hesitant and the process of finding a therapist can be a scary and overwhelming process for many people. However, you are worth it! You deserve to suffer less, know yourself better, and feel more content with who you are. Therapy can help you on that journey. I would also offer some practical advice here: If you feel uncomfortable or unsure, start right there in your first session and talk about it. The therapeutic relationship is one of the most important aspects of therapy and it is important that you feel safe.
