About me

I am licensed in New York with 5 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with coping with addictions, lgbtq+ related issues, relationship issues, & trauma and abuse among other areas. I believe that you are the expert of your story and that you have many strengths that will assist you in overcoming things that challenge you. It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am here to support & empower you in that journey, and am confident that together we can create positive change for you. Taking that first step towards healing can be scary, but you will not be alone in starting on your path towards building the life you want for yourself.
