Profile
“I believe strongly in the therapeutic process and believe people can find their way, experience their full potential, and be their authentic selves.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Growing up in New York City in the 80s, I saw the devastations of my community due to poverty, addiction, and untreated mental health. I realized that a lot of the issues were related to personal struggles and strained interpersonal relationships. I knew from my own experience of navigating life in the big city that I could be of support and service to those in my community. I have worked in mental health and recovery-based establishments, helping clients with their many reasons for coming to therapy. I believe strongly in the therapeutic process and believe people can find their way, experience their full potential, and be their authentic selves.
What should someone know about working with you?
I know that we all have our own stories to tell but sometimes it is hard to find our voice. Every client brings different life experiences that form their strengths and vulnerabilities so, when it comes to therapy, each individual gets a customized approach. I utilize different treatment modalities according to each individual’s needs. I assist clients in recognizing their patterns and the obstacles that get in the way. Together, we will create the space for meaningful change in your life. My goals as a therapist are to guide you toward finding your truest self and help you sustain stability in whatever way that might mean for you.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I attend certified workshops and training yearly that relate to my practice specialties. I complete the recommended CEUs to sustain my credentialing. I participate in weekly interdisciplinary meetings with my colleagues. I stay current and up-to-date on new treatment modalities and incorporate them into my work where relevant.
