By slowing down, it allows us to find and care for the parts of ourselves that are often hidden, ignored and might be hurting the most. I see therapy as a collaborative ...

I earned her undergraduate degree in Education and Mental Health from New York University before taking a sharp turn into the clothing design and production world.

This insight led her back to NYU to obtain her graduate degree in clinical social work and a position working with adjudicated adolescents and their families. Adolescence—defined by...
