Hello, I am a LSCW-R, Licensed Clinical Social Worker based in Long Island, NY. I specialize in Children, and Adolescents and their families. I have experience with DBT, CBT, and trauma-based treatment to help individuals reduce suffering and improve their lives. This has helped people with ADHD, Anxiety, Depression, Eating Disorders, Self-Harm behaviors and Trauma amongst other behavioral challenges and difficulties.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In our first session we will do an intake to find out history of symptoms, any past counseling, what has worked and what has not, and goals to work on now. You will have the opportunity to ask me any questions as well.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

Having been a mental health therapist 20 years, using a faith-based approach and a strong toolbox of strategies I have had the opportunity to help individuals transform their lives.

My treatment methods

Dialectical Behavior (DBT)

Most people struggle to move on from the past or worry about the future and they miss out on life right now. DBT uses a series of skills, to gain insight, live a healthier lifestyle, improve relationships in order to build the life you want. This therapy helps with intense emotion and impulsive behaviors. Learning these skills can help manage your emotions, change your behavior and take control of your mind.

Christian Counseling

As a Christian and a counselor, I aim to help individuals overcome mental health challenges and help heal spiritually. You can feel empowered to strengthen your relationship with God and explore your faith to address life's hardest challenges.


Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy treats trauma and PTSD and other trauma related disorders. By engaging the brain in a similar way involved with REM sleep, distressing memories can be re processed so they are no longer overwhelming. it helps to association negative emotions until eventually the distressing memory dissolves.
