Hello, my name is Aida. I have more than twenty years experience working with adults, adolescents, couples and families in my areas of expertise that include relationships, stress management, depression, anxiety, parenting, career concerns, transitions and social justice. I have worked in hospital, educational and outpatient settings. I have a BA in Psychology and a Masters in Social Work from NYU. I am a licensed clinical social worker, certified school social worker and a certified clinical supervisor.
I value cultural competence and have significant experience with intersectional identities and in working with diverse populations both internationally and locally.
In addition to problem solving, I believe the task of therapy is to better understand ourselves, one another, and our lived experiences in this world in order to effectively effect change. My approach is evidence based, hands on, solution focused and goal oriented.

Aida really understands my concerns and helps me to find the root cause of them. I absolutely recommend!
I've had about three sessions with Aida so far and each one has been incredibly helpful and insightful. I honestly can't recommend her enough and look forward to working with her more.
Aida since day one has been an amazing individual to help me with my issues. There hasn't been a moment where the advice and information she has imparted on my has been controversial or conflicting with my worldview. The advice has been practical and has helped me tremendously. She is awesome!
It took me three tries on BetterHelp to come across Aida and I am so grateful. It has only been two weeks but I feel very hopeful already. She is very insightful, supportive, and non-judgmental and I really feel like the ultimate goal of our sessions is for me to get better. Thank you so much!
Aida is very helpful and compassionate. I feel comfortable speaking to her and she is really helping me to heal.
Aida is very kind and patient. I’m very confident in her abilities to help me grow as a person.
