Profile
“Therapy is an ongoing process of self-discovery and I hope to provide a space where I can encourage you to express your feelings and we can work together to develop and implement more adaptive coping techniques, attitudes, and reactions.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Social work is my second career; I am also a certified child life specialist and my previous experiences have involved working in hospitals and helping children and families cope with medical diagnoses, procedures, and treatments. As much as I loved this work, I found myself drawn to the individuals themselves and wanting to learn more about their stories. I found great interest and passion in lending an ear, providing support, and helping these families reach their full potential. From this, I decided I wanted to learn more about family dynamics and how families and environments really impact a person and the ways he/she cope with different situations. I received my MSW from the Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College and from there, began my journey as a therapist.
What should someone know about working with you?
Therapy is an ongoing process of self-discovery and I hope to provide a space where I can encourage you to express your feelings and we can work together to develop and implement more adaptive coping techniques, attitudes, and reactions. Therapy starts with the initial intake. This allows us to get to know one another and develop goals to focus on during therapy. It is an opportunity for me to learn about your mental health history, assess functioning, and gather background information. This is also a time for you to ask me any questions so that we can develop a safe, trusting, and therapeutic relationship.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I believe that in life, we continue to learn. To me, the best clinicians are those who seek educational opportunities, mentorships, and their own therapy to continue to grow and evolve. Additionally, I think there is great power in collaboration. I value teamwork, especially in therapy, and make it a priority to connect with a client's medical team and/or psychiatrist (if available) as holistic, comprehensive care is always my goal.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I am very excited that telehealth is becoming more mainstream. I have previous experience working with adults with physical disabilities and I can truly attest to the accessibility of telehealth services. Having the ability to receive services from the comfort and privacy of your own home helps remove barriers to support.
