About My Clients

My work is with individuals and families. ​​Being a young adult can be an exciting yet stressful time. Are you feeling troubled by school, transition, relationships, family and/or friends? Let's look at your concerns together through different lenses and find new ways for you to do and feel better. Does your child have difficulty getting to school or are they defiant? Does your child seem depressed or anxious? Let's work to resolve these issues so your child and family can feel grounded again.

My Background and Approach

I had a very successful career in banking and finance but discovered that my true calling was in helping others to overcome their struggles. I have always been very attuned to the emotions of others and my previous career allowed me to learn that I have a gift in helping those in need. My desire to help was so compelling that I returned to school at New York University to earn my Master's Degree in Social Work and changed my career altogether. This was one of the best decisions in my life. My approach to working with you is from an empathic, authentic and balanced perspective. Balance is what maintains us but the imbalance can propel us. Fully understanding you, where you are now and where you'd like to be in the near and distant future are important parts of our therapeutic relationship. Finding alternatives is critical for the change process. Without these, we are left feeling trapped and hopeless. I will work with you to determine the most realistic and and useful alternatives.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that change is possible for everyone and having the right support is most important. Learning how to navigate through life events and change is an evolving process and choosing who to confide in is an essential part of this. I am that person to help guide you through your journey towards change. We all experience different phases of life, transitions, the need to adjust, heal or connect, and along this continuum, we encounter expected and unexpected events. I believe that you have life's answers within you and it's your readiness and willingness to explore these new areas that will help uncover the resolutions that you're looking for.
