What would be important for someone to know about working with you?

I have built my career around my passion, which is to provide support during times of struggle for others. This comes from a place of experience knowing how invaluable a safe therapy space can be. In working with me you will find yourself in a nonjudgemental, transparent space where I utilize all my training and tailor it to your specific needs. I feel that therapy is not one size fits all and it is important to treat the person as a whole not just treating the symptoms.

Work History

Being in the psychotherapy space has always been something I found a deep interest in. I started my first internship in 2011 shadowing a well respected PhD in his private practice. Here, I fell in love with working with individuals one on one as well as working with couples. This brought me to gain a Bachelors in Psychology and immediately after, a Masters in Social Work from NYU. Throughout my learning experience, I was afforded more opportunities to explore the psychology field through internships in mental health facilities as well as hospital settings. I took some time exploring different areas of the psychology world in the form of taking a position at The New York Foundling conducting in-home therapy for at risk adolescents and their families (usually court ordered). Then I explored a position as staff Social Worker in a nursing home setting providing treatment planning care for the residents. As much as I enjoyed this work, I knew that private practice is where my passion would grow. The first full-time staff psychotherapist position I accepted was in 2017. Here, I learned the importance of keeping, creating and maintaining a strict schedule, notes and weekly sessions with individuals and couples. I would continue this path exploring two other settings with different supervisors providing invaluable lessons that would help shape the psychotherapist I am. I found that I loved working with couples which brought me to become Gottman trained. Through my most recent supervisor, I also found a love for AEDP. Though these two modalities stand out to me as two that I love. I have been trained in multiple different modalities that I feel are important to tailor to my clients specific needs.
