Profile
“I take a very client-centered approach to therapy and I work with each client individually based on their goals and needs.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I'm a TK (therapist's kid); my mother was a Jungian analyst. As far back as I can remember, I had this fascination with the mind. I have the heart of a helper and naturally connect with people. I feel as if I did not choose my career; rather it chose me. I have worked in the court system with domestic and intimate partner violence survivors. I've worked with adolescents at the Staten Island Mental Health Society and with co-occurring populations at the Center for Revitalizing Psychiatry. With my husband Rick (who is a psychotherapist as well), I co-own Lighthouse Psychotherapy LLC, a private practice.
What should someone know about working with you?
I take a very client-centered approach to therapy and I work with each client individually based on their goals and needs. One size does not fit all! I typically don't assign homework but I do on occasion share psychoeducational materials pertaining to the topics discussed in session.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I regularly attend trainings and webinars that focus on emerging trends and the best practices for therapy.
How do your own core values shape your approach to therapy?
I believe that, regardless of their circumstances, all people are worthy of respect, acceptance, and compassion and I believe there is an overcomer in all of us. My goal as a therapist is to inspire my clients to tap in to that overcoming spirit.
