Profile
“My values surrounding relationships likely shape my approach to therapy the most.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I became a therapist likely due to my curiosity about humans and human behavior. I started as an inquisitive child and morphed into a thoughtful and creative adult. Pair those traits with a healthy dose of empathy and you get some basic building blocks of being a therapist. I completed my master's degree at Fordham for social work. My work experience has primarily been in the field of addiction, working with teenagers, adults, and their significant others to address their underlying reasons for substance misuse.
What should someone know about working with you?
The initial assessment in therapy is an opportunity for us to get to know each other and ensure a good fit. Therapy is a place to uncover the darker parts of ourselves and that needs to be done carefully with someone you can trust. My orientation to understanding human behavior is typically through a psychodynamic lens, meaning there is an emphasis on bringing unconscious processes to light. I have a passion for working with young adults, yet my curiosity allows me the opportunity to enjoy working with any individual who is motivated to explore themselves and their behavior or looking to help cope with life a little more easily.
How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
My values surrounding relationships likely shape my approach to therapy the most. I believe exploring both early life and current relationships can give us a better understanding of behavior and help uncover maladaptive thought patterns that lead to this behavior. I believe in a transparent working relationship and have come to understand that the therapeutic relationship can mimic other relationships in our lives, both past and present. Healing and relationships go hand in hand, and I've found that connection breeds purpose and meaning in one's life. I also have a strong background in meditation and mindfulness that is often interwoven into sessions.
