I am a clinical social worker with over thirty years of experience working with adults, couples, and families. I see my role as your therapist is to compassionately support your personal growth through the use of empirically supported interventions and to promote practical coping strategies to handle life's many stressors. I provide culturally sensitive and trauma-informed care, and welcome clients of all ages, genders and sexual identities. The values of transparency, empathy, and the validation of your personal truth are essential components of my model of care and I treat my clients as partners in creating their own creative solutions to life's many challenges.

As a native New Yorker, I have worked with clients of all socio- economic and cultural groups residing throughout the mosaic of the New York Metropolitan Area.

I utilize evidence based approaches to provide practical solutions, strategies for managing life's challenges and symptom relief. I view all of us as part of systems, whether that be familial, professional, or social and we are all impacted by issues of racial, gender, and economic inequities. I emphasize the connections between our emotional and physical wellness, and provide holistic, person centered care. I enjoy working with children and their families to improve communication and assist them in weathering life transitions such as loss, divorce, and the creation of new or blended families.

I believe that human beings are strong and resilient. We are also creatures of habit, and sometimes habits can get in the way of our well being. No matter what the challenges we currently face, we can use our naturally given strengths and resources to move through difficult experiences. A successful therapeutic relationship begins and ends with connection and trust. Always client focused, I will help you flourish so you can live your best life. I combine supportive compassion and authenticity with gentle-and targeted intervention, a combination that truly gets results. We will find your strengths and use them to help you shed light on how you think, respond and behave. Old, unwelcome patterns will be discarded and you will be truly successful.

Finding a therapist who you feel a connection to can be as important and hard as the decision to begin therapy altogether.  It’s so important! Therapeutic fit is the best predictor of therapeutic outcome so I hope that as you slow down and read through this you will have a better understanding of my approach and style.

My approach is depth oriented and holistic. I look deeply at what is brining you into therapy and what will help you feel complete and ready to end. I look at the whole picture of what’s going on in your life not just the symptoms you present to me. I want to illuminate and bring healing to what’s underlying by getting to the root cause of what’s out of balance for you. Through addressing all of the pieces to the puzzle, I can help you make pivotal shifts and lifestyle changes so you can find wholeness again.

I am a hopeful therapist, and I will share this hope with you. I will give you unconditional positive regard and respect your choices. I will help you make sense of why you respond to life the way you do, and why your body responds to triggers the way it does. I have helped hundreds of abuse survivors in their healing journey. If you're willing to partner with me and work hard on your goals, I can help you experience improvement in symptoms. The past doesn't have to stay in the present. Working on the trauma doesn't have to be scary. I will prepare you for it and help you see the progress you make along the way.

My skills, interventions, and personality are the same online as in-person. My interventions are effective in helping you reach your goals when you and I work hard together.

We live in a busy world where we are all distracted by work, phones, and various activities. Therapy offers you an opportunity to stop all that for a moment. Moments are all we have, and if you are moving through them too fast, or without noticing, you are at risk of depression and anxiety. You may feel robotic and like you are constantly striving but you are unsure why. We all have inner worlds that collide with our outside experience. In therapy we can take the time to explore both and build an understanding that can allow you the space to feel more satisfied in life.

Therapy can be a uncomfortable and unfamiliar process. These are natural feelings and are perfectly normal to have when contemplating therapy. Building the courage to seek emotional support for yourself and/or family members is a courageous step and as a clinician, I commend you for taking that first step! In practice, I am seen as a supportive, personable and relatable therapist who can support and normalize emotional responses to a multitude of challenges including relationships dynamics, family conflicts, LGBTQ, gender identity and Trans attractions, depression, anxiety and issues concerning race relations.
