About My Clients
Potential clients generally seek my help because they feel unhappy with some aspect(s) of their lives. They have found themselves repeating unhealthy or harmful patterns. They are unsure about how to change or improve. Oftentimes they have a conflict that they feel is unsolvable and have tried to address it on their own to no avail.
My Background and Approach
I graduated from The Graduate Center’s Clinical Psychology Doctoral Program in 2015 and have worked in a variety of settings, including hospitals, community clinics and student counseling centers. My theoretical orientation is primarily psychodynamic and I integrate other approaches as appropriate while always working from a trauma-informed, culturally sensitive lens. I treat a range of presenting issues, but my areas of special interest include depression, difficult life transitions, romantic relationship issues, and grief and loss. I do not take a one-size-fits-all approach to therapy and as a result tailor treatment to suit specific client needs. My goal is to create a safe, trusting and non-judgmental therapeutic relationship within which my clients can get to know themselves more fully and develop the clarity needed to make better decisions, implement change, live more peacefully within themselves and among others and to feel in control of their life.
