Profile
“I believe talk therapy and an open dialogue in a nonjudgmental environment are essential to clients being able to tell their story. My areas of focus are with adults, individuals, and couples who want to work on issues related to sadness, depression, anger, anxiety, substance abuse, grief/loss, and the pressures of life, work, and transitions.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Working as a licensed mental health counselor is a second career for me. My first career was working for the New York City Department of Education as a guidance counselor. I worked with elementary school students and focused on social/emotional skills, academic skills, and career skills. I decided to pursue mental health counseling because I wanted to continue to do purposeful and meaningful work with adults, individuals, and couples to help them reach their true potential. I completed my clinical hours working at Social Work Counseling Services, PLLC in Astoria, New York and treated a variety of clients with issues related to anxiety, depression, sadness, anger, substance abuse, relationships, eating disorders, grief or loss, and the pressures of life, work, and transitions.
What should someone know about working with you?
I believe talk therapy and an open dialogue in a nonjudgmental environment are essential to clients being able to tell their story. My areas of focus are with adults, individuals, and couples who want to work on issues related to sadness, depression, anger, anxiety, substance abuse, grief/loss, and the pressures of life, work, and transitions. On your initial visit with me, I will complete an assessment and get information about what brings you to therapy, any pertinent history, and the goals you would like to focus on. My approach is warm, empathetic, and practical. We will work together to develop coping strategies and practical skills while setting goals to help you move forward from those roadblocks that get in the way of you being your best self.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
The specific types of continuing education courses or trainings I have participated in focus on CBT, integrative medicine, mindfulness, and working with couples. I am very interested in learning more about Dr. Sue Johnson and her approach to couples therapy. Collaborating with other providers will benefit my clients because I believe it is important to get feedback and opinions other than my own, and it is a way to stay connected to the mental health community.
