“I believe therapy is a practice and commitment from both therapist and client.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I have always had an interest in human behavior; I was also raised by an empathetic and nonjudgmental person who instilled those same values in me. With these interests and values in mind, I pursued an undergraduate degree in psychology and sociology. While volunteering at a youth organization based in NYC, I learned that a master's degree in Social Work would enable me to help others. This education taught me the true importance of approaching others with empathy and meeting them where they are. After obtaining my MSW, I worked in various areas within the mental health field. I realized that helping others to better understand themselves, navigate the world around them, and meet their goals is my life's passion.
What should someone know about working with you?
Clients come to me seeking a safe space to express difficult emotions and gain insight into their thoughts, behaviors, and patterns. Therapy with me is integrative, collaborative, and tailored to meet your needs. I believe that effective therapy begins with a trusting relationship between practitioner and client; this relationship makes healing and progress possible. I commit to working hard towards your goals and ask the same from you! I am currently offering virtual sessions only and 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 attend continuing education trainings and consult with colleagues on a weekly basis. Not only is this critical to staying current, but it enables me to provide my clients with the best care possible.
