Profile
“Once we decide that we are a good fit for each other, we begin to boldly, safely, and sometimes somewhat comically explore the issues that bring you to counseling.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I have always believed that each of us can be empowered to help heal and emancipate each other from the trials and tribulations of life. I started my career as a helper at a young age, working after school in peer education and counseling settings. I followed this path all the way to the graduate and clinical levels. The varying support I got from my own family of origin motivated me to want to work with others to demonstrate the power of being one’s authentic self.
What should someone know about working with you?
Working with me will definitely be a ride worth writing home about. Once we decide that we are a good fit for each other, we begin to boldly, safely, and sometimes somewhat comically explore the issues that bring you to counseling. There will always be homework (or "field practice" as I call it), which is designed to help you bring counseling out of the counseling room and into your life. Counseling with me is meant to be short-term (five sessions at least and up to 18 months at most) to allow for you to actually experience the freedom afforded by your hard work in therapy.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
To maintain my skills as a clinician (above what is required by New York State), I frequently attend and host community-based educational activities with and for local providers. I frequently attend and present at conferences and institutions. I maintain a regular interdisciplinary team of healthcare providers who consult on cases as needed to ensure that care is optimal and based on the best known practices. This team includes psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, psychologists, social workers, massage therapists, and a nutritionist.
