Profile
“I often work with adults experiencing life transitions and believe that providing someone the space to work through the discomfort of a transition can lead to tremendous growth.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
My path to becoming a therapist was not linear and came after other work experiences that left me feeling unfulfilled and uncertain about my career choices. The support I received from others, and the supportive space of therapy, was instrumental to my growth, both personally and professionally, and gave me the time and space to process and explore the challenges I experienced. Today, I often work with adults experiencing life transitions and believe that providing someone the space to work through the discomfort of a transition can lead to tremendous growth. I graduated from Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College and my postgraduate training has focused on evidence-based interventions and trauma-informed approaches to therapy.
What should someone know about working with you?
I strongly believe that no matter where you are in your journey, there is room for growth, insight, and the possibility of making meaningful change. I believe that the potential for change is within each person. As a clinician, I believe that one of the most important components of psychotherapy is having an environment that is supportive, trusting, validating, and compassionate. I am a trauma-informed therapist and I utilize several modalities in my work, including psychodynamic therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), cognitive process therapy (CPT), eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), internal family systems, and mindfulness. My approach is integrative, and I work with clients to identify treatment that will work best and meet their goals.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I value the importance of education, learning, and growth. I regularly attend postgraduate training programs and workshops. I believe my ongoing education is vital to my work as a therapist and being able to support clients. I also practice mindfulness meditation as a form of personal growth.
