Licensed in
Therapy licenses aren't like driver's licenses — each state has its own set of rules. To offer care, a provider needs to be licensed in the state you're located in when sessions are happening.

Profile
“I provide a non-judgmental, comfortable, and professional experience in a safe environment.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
My current doctoral research at NYU has enriched my understanding of identity formation for members of the LGBTQ community and how this impacts relationships and attachment style. I provide a non-judgmental, comfortable, and professional experience in a safe environment.
What should someone know about working with you?
I offer free phone consultations where we can briefly discuss your interest in beginning therapy, goals, and expectations. We can also address any questions you have regarding my therapeutic approach and other inquiries.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I believe practice, education, and interdisciplinary engagement makes for quality care. I make every effort to keep myself informed through continuing education and networking options to stay current with research for best practices. This is also a driving force in my decision to return to school for my doctorate.
