I work with adolescents, adults, families, and couples to assist them in achieving their full potential; mentally, emotionally and behaviorally. My goal is to create a supportive, nonjudgmental space in order to gain a deep understanding of each client’s needs.
I recognize that everyone has their own unique qualities and strengths. Therefore, I use an integrative approach that incorporates methods from an array of treatment modalities. My treatment approach derives from a Psychodynamic perspective, while incorporating Mindfulness, Solution-Focused and Cognitive-Behavioral techniques. What this essentially means, is that as your therapist, I will get to know the intricacies of your personality; your past and present feelings, motives, and decisions that make you who you are. By understanding the core of your belief systems, I will help you to learn to navigate them in order to change unwanted emotions or behavioral patterns.
As a Licensed Social Worker, my work experience has included child and adolescent counseling, crisis counseling and home-based individual and family counseling. Currently, I am the director of a school based counseling program. My work has focused on utilizing a trauma-informed approach with my clients.
I have worked with individuals of all ages who have experienced a variety of traumatic stress and I am passionate about helping survivors work through and overcome their traumatic experiences. In sessions, I use modalities such as art therapy, mindfulness, and cognitive behavioral therapy.
I have a Masters Degree from New York University as well as a certificate in Advanced Clinical Practice with Adolescents from NYU
Through my work as a mental health counselor I have come to find that the most integral part of counseling is providing a safe and welcoming environment for my clients to explore their issues. I identify as an eclectic therapist and utilize a psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, and humanistic approach to assist clients in gaining insight and promoting change in a supportive, warm space. In addition I am a traditionally trained studio artist and always bring a creative eye to what I do.
I received my Masters Degree in Mental Health Counseling from Brooklyn College CUNY where I also received Bachelors degrees in Psychology and Studio Art. My area of expertise is working with adults and couples who are experiencing issues like depression, anxiety, PTSD and stressors related daily life. I also have experience providing behavioral therapy to children on the spectrum. My work is multi-cultural and LGBTQ-affirmative, and I am always interested in the unique experiences of the people I work with.
As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, I have a very diverse background in training and experience. I specialize in the treatment of all ages with anxiety disorders, depression, substance abuse and relationship issues. Therapeutic techniques incorporated into my work include but are not limited to Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), Person-centered therapy, Experiential Therapy, Solution-focused Therapy and Play Therapy. I enjoy utilizing the appropriate modality to help each client achieve their goals.
My goal is to develop a strong therapeutic relationship that is based on openness and acceptance. I am down to earth, intuitive, current, and non-judgmental. I create a warm trusting environment, where my client can be his/her true self and become the best version of themselves. I find helping people succeed, transition through change and assist their families or caregivers preserve through difficult circumstances most rewarding.
I understand how difficult it may be to seek help, and I believe that the first step to having a positive therapeutic outcome is the client/therapist relationship. I employ a supportive and holistic approach to help clients feel comfortable, safe, and secure in the therapeutic relationship. As a licensed social worker, I have experience working with a wide array of populations, with a focus on children, adolescents, and families. While I commonly utilize a psychodynamic approach, I understand that therapy is not “one size fits all” and am able to work with clients based on their individual needs. I have experience with various modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Solution-Focused Therapy.
I believe that while the past may have a role in who we are today, it does not need to be indicative of who we will be in the future. My goal as a therapist is to help clients better understand themselves, and their world, in order to identify triggers and root causes of maladaptive thoughts/feelings/behaviors. Through our work together I hope to help my clients gain insight, confidence, and effective coping skills.
