See and hear things differently through mentalization-based treatment an evidenced-based approach to understanding our internal processes.
Licensed Mental Health Counselor in New York, NY
As a Mentalization-Based Treatment (MBT) provider for children (MBT-C) through adults, I focus my work towards understanding the development of our internal state of mind and the connection to others. MBT was developed initially for Borderline Personality Disorder and Anti-Social Personality Disorder, and since has been proven to be more effective than treatment as usual.
Most of my work includes an attachment perspective and the development of our attachment styles to understand the re-emergence of relational patterns in our current life. I utilize a combination of evidenced-based treatment modalities to create a robust understanding of the interpersonal system. Attachment work can include individual, couples, family, or group work.
As a member of the LGBTQIA+ community, I understand the unique challenges associated with our community. I have dedicated part of my private group practice to helping those within this community or those interacting with our community. I have written articles on the unique challenges in traditional modalities, spoken about LGBTQIA+ issues at various organization, and continue to supervise others to increase cultural competencies.
