Profile
“I work well with clients who enjoy being creative and hands-on and I often use art and play in sessions.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I have always been interested in culture, values, and family dynamics. I have travelled a lot and have worked abroad, including getting my master's degree in Mexico City. I like to learn about other people's experiences and how they relate to the world. I have been fortunate enough to meet and work with people who come from many different backgrounds. I truly enjoy learning about and supporting other people. Much of my experience has been in nonprofits in New York City, serving children and families. I have worked with families impacted by domestic violence, abuse, neglect, and systemic oppression. I have specialized training and experience supporting parents and families with children from birth to five years old. I have been trained in trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy, the Triple-P Positive Parenting Program, and child parent psychotherapy. I also work with adolescents, young adults, adults, and couples experiencing stress, trauma, anxiety, or depression.
What should someone know about working with you?
My style is collaborative and flexible; I adapt based on my client's needs and goals. I often integrate different therapeutic approaches. I work well with clients who enjoy being creative and hands-on and I often use art and play in sessions.
How do your own core values shape your approach to therapy?
I believe in the power of relationships to promote growth and change and I let my clients get to know me as much as they would like. I am not afraid to speak about my own experiences and challenges or use myself as a therapeutic tool.
