“I push you and help you accomplish the goals you set in therapy. We are partners and we are in this together.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
For the last 20 years, I have worked for a non-profit agency, serving New York’s homeless population and most vulnerable people. I found my passion in this work, committing myself to providing the best possible care to clients and tailoring that care to each individual’s needs. I graduated from UMUC with a BS in psychology and neuroscience, followed by a master's degree in clinical mental health and wellness counseling from NYU Steinhardt.
What should someone know about working with you?
We are all different and have different needs. That is why our sessions are tailored to address your unique needs and wants so that you gain the best possible outcome. I push you and help you accomplish the goals you set in therapy. We are partners and we are in this together.
What advice would you give to someone who is hesitant to try therapy?
Therapy is an investment in yourself. It is a safe space where you can be your true self and focus on your growth, your healing, and your strength.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
We are closing the gap and reducing the stigma surrounding mental health care. We’re advocating for many groups and individuals by fighting for access to treatment for all and providing a wholesome and holistic approach that is guided by science and evidence-based practice.
