About Me

Hello! I understand that seeking out therapy can be both exciting and scary, and I commend individuals who reach out for help. Whether you are looking to address a specific problem, or are in search of someone to assist you in gaining a greater insight into yourself and your goals, I am happy to help. I am an empathic and compassionate counselor who believes that an open and non-judgmental environment is vital for beneficial therapy. Often, it is not until we are able to communicate our struggles and needs to another person that we are able to understand them better ourselves. I hope to be able to do that for you.

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in New York, as well as a Credentialed Alcohol and Substance Abuse Counselor. I have a Master’s degree in Psychology and training in therapies such as CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy) and Mindfulness. I have extensive experience assisting clients with a wide range of concerns, including substance misuse, depression, anxiety, and relationship difficulties, as well as stress and anger management.

I look forward to speaking with you!
