About My Clients
As your therapist, I am here with you to co-create a space where you feel known and supported while working on healing and growth. I help guide you to the vulnerability and self-introspection needed to explore how and where this is possible. Getting to know yourself and your experiences more deeply through therapy can open up more space in your life for attunement, self-actualization, and delight - I hope to assist you with accessing the honesty and self-compassion to make this possible.
My Background and Approach
My clinical approach draws from a number of modalities including Motivational Interviewing, Psychodynamic Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. My practice is trauma-informed, and also strongly influenced by feminist and postcolonial critical theory. After graduating from the Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College I worked in the community mental health setting, primarily supporting low income individuals, people of color, and people from immigrant communities in managing chronic mental health conditions. My practice experience shaped my holistic approach to psychological and emotional wellness, and informed my understanding of the need to incorporate an understanding of a person’s social and environmental surroundings to accurately assess and address their mental health. I am licensed in NY and NJ, and I am currently accepting new clients for virtual appointments (weekly individual therapy and biweekly couples therapy).
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
As a member of the LGBTQ community, I am committed to providing queer-affirming and trans-affirming care. I identify as a BIPOC person and uphold the values of anti-racism and anti-colorism in my work. I have a great respect for spirituality and interest in religious experiences - my clients have included the religious, the formerly religious, and the spiritual.
