About me

I am a New York State Licensed Mental Health Counselor with over 10 years of experience in the field. Prior to being a therapist, I worked as a counselor aide and a case manager for persons with Serious and Persistent Mental Illness, and as a motivational coach for people with chronic medical conditions. As a therapist, over the past 8+ years, I’ve helped many clients - struggling with issues like depression, anxiety, stress, family concerns, life changes, and existential crises - rediscover themselves, cope in healthier ways, and implement change in their lives. I work with individuals, couples, families, children, teens, and adults.
In collaboration with you, and through exploration, I strive to help you find and understand yourself on a deeper level, to become aware of the areas in your life that may be impacting you, and help you better cope with life’s many challenges, in an open, non-judgmental, safe space. I give great importance to the therapeutic relationship between therapist and client. My approach is a welcoming and supportive one. It is by means of the therapeutic relationship, that both the client and therapist can openly explore and address deeper issues. Ultimately, this is where therapy truly begins.
