I believe that therapy is an emotional and spiritual journey to self-discovery and self-growth. By creating a balance of warmth, safety, nurture, and challenge, my clients are able to get the most out of their therapeutic experience. My work mainly focuses on relational trauma, complex family relationships, attachment disorders, self-doubt, low-self-esteem, depression, fear, and anxiety.
My approach to therapy is an integration of person-centered therapy, psychodynamic theory, trauma informed IFS, and attachment theory. I also incorporate somatic and mindfulness based interventions as a way of fostering greater self-awareness in my clients.
From my experience working with adults, adolescents, children, couples, and families, I believe that the combination of these different approaches allow for a holistic understanding of who the client is, how they understand themselves and others, and how they navigate through life in an empathetic and nonjudgmental way.
I earned my Bachelor's degree in Psychology and Sociology at Queens College, and received my Master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling and Wellness at NYU Steinhardt.
