Hello there! I am a licensed mental health counselor with years of experience working with navigating relationships, identity, and trauma.
Licensed Mental Health Counselor in , NY
I have training in Gottman Method Level One and I am certified to provide premarital and marital counseling through PREPARE/ENRICH.
The core of how I perceive relationships within our life and our identities is connected to Attachment Theory. We may explore: what do our early attachments say about our current relationships and what were our relationships like with our parents? In doing so, we may be able to better understand our early experiences, so that we have the tools and resources to implement changes in the present-day.
Trauma can mean anything that has impacted our lives in a deep way; this can range from witnessing your parents' divorce to a car accident to being abused or neglected. Trauma therapy and multicultural counseling are very much connected and needed, in order to better understand how an individual's identities may have been shaped by the environments around them.
