Profile
“I provide a nonjudgmental space for my clients to share and explore areas of concern.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I have always had an interest in human behavior. I was raised by an empathetic and nonjudgmental person who instilled those same values in me. After completing an undergraduate degree in psychology and sociology, I wanted to take these interests and apply what I had learned to help others. After volunteering at a youth organization based in NYC, I pursued a master's degree in social work. It was here that I learned the true importance of practicing with empathy and meeting my clients where they are. After working in various areas of this field, I realized that helping other people to understand themselves and navigate the world around them has become my passion.
What should someone know about working with you?
I provide a nonjudgmental space for my clients to share and explore areas of concern. I enjoy working with adults to make meaning out of life and build awareness around their emotions, thoughts, and behaviors. I am a trauma-informed, strengths-based practitioner; I pull from my education, training, and experiences to create eclectic treatment plans that emphasize the therapeutic relationship and clients' needs. I am currently offering virtual sessions only but ask that it is treated as if we are in the room together.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I consult with colleagues and attend supervision on a weekly basis. I utilize these meetings to better understand clients and their needs while exploring various treatment methods and approaches. I am currently attending psychoanalytic training, which has helped me to understand the importance of the therapeutic relationship. I use this to gain insight into how early development and attachment styles play a role in the client’s experiences, situations, and relationships.
