Since 2012, I have practiced as a registered dietitian and nutritionist working primarily with eating disorders, HIV/AIDS, and with LGBTQ communities. In 2016, I founded a private practice in New York City specializing in the treatment of eating disorders.
While in private practice, I returned to school to complete advance training as a mental health clinician, graduating in 2018 from the New York University (NYU) Silver School of Social Work with a masters degree focusing on social justice and mental health counseling.
As a part of my graduate training, I worked as a therapist at GMHC (formerly Gay Men’s Health Crisis), the first organization in the world founded to address the AIDS epidemic. I also trained at the National Institute for the Psychotherapies, a psychoanalytic training institute in New York City internationally recognized for their relational approaches to psychotherapy.
