I enjoy working with adolescents, young adults and adults as well as children. I am a person (and a therapist!) who believes in strong relationships based on trust. I may take a bit longer to get to know you and understand you. Taking time for this is the basis for all relationships I believe. I am open to your experiences and your story, there is not much I have not heard. I have worked with grief, depression, anxiety, abuse and trauma. This is my second career, I come with lots of life experiences and a great passion for this work.

I started out as a kid from Queens, NY who volunteered on the weekends working with individuals with autism while I was in high school. That propelled me into the world of social services. From there, I worked with individuals with severe psychiatric concerns, to families in need throughout NYC, the shelter system, students in higher education, residential group homes for system impacted adolescence and community mental health in the Southern California region. I believe we all have our stories from lived experiences that play a direct role in our daily struggles. This is why I utilize a psychodynamic & mindfulness approach that helps folks to understand what factors of their past feeds the stressors of their present and how to live more freely in the “now”.

Cross-training in Clinical as well as Counseling Psychology with state & national Addiction Certification Counseling allows for a flexible, integrative approach to a range of issues; mood disorders (depression/anxiety), relationship, occupational, grief and loss, and health-related concerns. For most, a practical, supportive, solution-based approach is the best way to work through more immediate, real-life problems, e.g., interpersonal conflict or chronic symptoms, but, depth-psychology is a good approach for those who may be seeking deeper meaning.
