I'm a Licensed clinical social Worker passionate about helping others become the best versions of themselves in order to live their best lives. I believe an essential feature of therapy is that I provide a safe, non-judgmental environment in which you can begin to heal and thrive. I strive to help you identify your strengths and positive traits to assist in building confidence and self-esteem. I have had the privilege to work with a diverse population including children, families, couples and individuals. I have experience working with clients in different capacities such as behavioral issues amongst children, teen substance and alcohol use, family struggles, couple counseling as well as individual counseling. I believe no two people are just alike. As a result, I take a flexible and ever changing approach to helping clients.

I am a licensed clinical social worker and certified psychanalyst with certified CBT training as well and a Ph.D in an allied field. I had taught at UCLA, USC, and Antioch Universities and I was asked to try to give and develop a college program at the California Institution for Women, at the time, the only facility for female felons in the state. Shortly, I realized I needed clinical training and went back to school specializing in children and families. Later I moved to NYC to attend The Postgraduate Center for Mental Health, an affiliate of New York University. I did one training for adults (5 years) and 3 of the 4 years for the child and adolescent track. I have worked in clinics as well as private practice in both New York and CT. I hope I may be of service.

“Together, we will work on strategies that address the root cause of difficulties. We have what we need inside us. Let’s use curiosity and compassion to ask the hard questions. Those answers are the gateway to resolution. Call me and let’s talk.” I believe there are no broken people. Decisions made during difficult, emotional times are influenced by unsettled parts. Through talk therapy, we can address past hurts in a safe and supportive therapeutic space free of judgment. Doing so will begin the healing process. The focus is to empower your quiet voice within to share your truth with first yourself and then others. The goal is to end historic pain by creating a more pleasant present, which allows you to live your best life.

Therapy I feel is a chance to learn and shift patterns in our lives. Relationships are a key part of life but are difficult on many levels and we learn the way that we communicate with other from our experience. Learning and understanding that experience can help us make the changes that we would like to see in life. I believe in having an open space free from judgement were people can explore who they are and learn how to use that to change their lives and their relationships with others. I work with people from all different perspectives and believe that we are the products of our experience and that we can find ways to change the patterns that are not helpful for us. Communication is key in relationships but it is something that we have trouble with but are not always aware of the impact. Learning patterns, identifying the meaning that we put to our experiences and seeing our strengths are ways that allow us to become the person that we want to be without losing who we are.

Hello, I am an experienced clinical trauma professional who engages in a holistic mind, body, and spirit approach in my work with racially, economically, sexually, and culturally diverse persons. As a licensed clinical social worker, clinical trauma professional, and mental health integrative medicine professional, I focus on the clients as people, not as conditions or as diagnoses. In working with chronically and complexly traumatized individuals, couples, and families I recognize and interact with clients affirming that they are deserving of empathy, respect, and dignity. To this end, the treatment methods I use are tailored and combined to meet the needs of each specific individual, couple, and family I work with. I counsel clients who are struggling with traumatic stress disorders, mood disorders, anxiety disorders, problem behaviors, and addictive behaviors. The healing journey intentionally addresses the whole person: body, mind, and spirit. Evidenced-based traditional, holistic, and expressively creative client-centered therapeutic processes and interventions are used to help clients overcome limiting, self-defeating thoughts & feelings about self-worth, relationships, and patterns of choices that lead to dysfunctional behaviors. Clients learn to manage the underlying issues that interfere with family, social, vocational, or educational functioning.

Hello there! I am a dual Licensed Professional Counselor and School Counselor who is passionate about providing individualized therapy using a person-centered and holistic approach. I have a Masters in Counseling from The University of Saint Joseph, and I have experience working with clients of all ages. I believe that in a society where mental health can often be looked upon as an afterthought, it is especially important now more than ever that it is prioritized. I aim to create a collaborative working relationship that will ultimately lead to self-improvement and healing within a safe therapeutic environment. I use an interpersonal and relational-cultural approach in therapy meaning that one of my top priorities is getting to know the client as a whole person. This includes the many layers of a client’s identity and experiences. It is important to me that I place a large emphasis on client strengths and cultivate authenticity and empowerment so that they feel in control of their life. I believe therapy should be collaborative and depending on the need, I integrate a wide range of treatment options including CBT, Solution-Focused Therapy, and Trauma-Informed Therapy. Some of my training includes working with anxiety/depression, mood disorders, adjustment disorders, trauma and abuse. My approach to counseling is rooted in my experience within therapeutic practice and my commitment to equity.
