About Me

Taking the leap to seek help is not an easy task. But, you did it. And, I'm here to help. I understand just how hard it can be especially if you can barely get out of bed in the morning, are dealing with major life changes, feel paralyzed by worries or are really struggling in your romantic relationships. My fundamental aim is to provide a safe, non-judgmental space because this is the foundation of any successful helping relationship. Once established, we can use our time together for you to explore, understand and shift what is not going so well in your life.

My style is very warm and I excel at helping clients feel comfortable and accepted. I enjoy collaborative and conversational relationships with my clients in which they are challenged to take an active role in working through whatever the issue is. Together, we'll develop personalized plans to meet your particular needs.

I particularly enjoy providing services via digital medium and I have years of experience working in community mental health clinics and within school settings. I also provide professional coaching and come with several years of coaching experience.

I attended NYU and the University of Pennsylvania. I also have a post-master's clinical certification.

I look forward to hearing from you.
