About me

I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist based out of New York, providing virtual therapy in New York and Connecticut.

My experience comes from providing therapy to couples, individuals, and families with a variety of presenting issues including anxiety, relationship and family issues, trauma, addictions, family conflicts, parenting, motivation, and self-esteem issues. I approach the therapeutic relationship with care and respect for intersectional identities. Much of my experience includes working with families that have a member who struggles with anxiety, depression, and addiction. I've worked with parents on parenting, and couples on communication. I've worked in a variety of settings such as community mental health, group practices, large non-profit and for-profit organizations.

I focus primarily on adjusting how one feels, behaves, and thinks within relationships. Including your relationship with yourself! My style tends to be casual, relaxed, and thoughtful. I approach therapy with a directness and light demeanor that reflects my optimism about your ability to reach your potential. I strive to build our relationship so I can be someone you trust to lean on and also challenge you when needed.

My style and approach draws from Structural Family therapy, CBT, DBT, and humanistic models of therapy. I'm going to meet you where you are and develop an approach that works for you to help you meet the goals we will collaboratively build. Whether that's enlightenment or improved function, I hope to work together to achieve it!

It can be an effortful process to work towards a better life. If you're ready to do that, then I'm here to support you on that journey.
