I graduated with a BA in psychology from Cornell University in 1999, and from Columbia University with an MA in Social Work in 2001. Since then, I have been helping clients with a variety of issues, such as stress and anxiety, relationship issues, coping with grief and loss, & depression. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
