About me

I am licensed in New York with 30 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, trauma and abuse, motivation, self esteem, and confidence, & depression. I use a person-centered approach to help each client make positive changes and reach his or her goals. I practice psychotherapy using a humanistic approach. A humanistic approach focuses on free will, human potential and self-discovery. It aims to help you develop a strong and healthy sense of self, explore your feelings, find meaning and focus on your strengths. The dreams of the heart are there for a reason.
When allowed to bloom, life is a beautiful symphony. I will help you explore your dreams and analyze any conscious or unconscious factors interfering with your greater potential. I have worked in outpatient and inpatient settings where I've been able to see clients across the lifespan and realized that, at any age, the question of "Who am I?" can have a profound impact on the way a person sees both themselves and the world. I work to create a safe and collaborative relationship with my clients,. I believe every client deserves a space to be seen and heard for who they truly are even if they aren't yet sure who that person is.
