abouT ME

I firmly believe that we as human beings grow in relationships as an empathic and attuned other bears witness to our struggles; my role is to provide a safe environment and a skilled ear in which you are able to become better acquainted with yourself: your thinking, behavior, and feelings so that you can ultimately live a more fulfilled life.  For some this means a few months of work and for others a few years.

My approach is integrative, collaborative, and informed by my training in depth psychology.  Many have described me as gentle, empathic, and non-judgmental.  I work with you to illuminate and build on your strengths and empower you to conquer negative patterns so you have greater emotional and overall psychological freedom.

I have over a decade of clinical experience working with New Yorkers from a variety of backgrounds.  I received my B.A. from Cornell University and my M.S.W. from New York University.  I went on to complete a four-year certificate program in psychoanalysis at the Training Institute for Mental Health.  In addition, I am the Founder and Director of Clinical Services of NYC Affirmative Psychotherapy: a sliding scale, community focused, group practice.  I have extensive experience working with young adults and adults and specialize in the treatment of trauma, anxiety, depression, LGBTQ and multicultural issues.  

Whether it be depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship problems or any other struggles, you don't have to do it alone.  Give me a call and lets take the next step together.
