Work History

I graduated from Boston University in 2002. Since then, working exclusively in New York and New Jersey, providing services to socially, economically and racially diverse communities. Experience in holding leadership positions at area hospitals, ensuring the safe and medically appropriate care and discharge of vulnerable patients. I have a well established and justly earned reputation of being a tireless client advocate and a knowledgeable contributor to the hospital’s administrative staff. As a psychotherapist, I describe myself as client-focused and culturally informed. I view myself as a trusted guide, working with clients as they navigate the complexities and often harsh realities of their life’s journey. I am patient and active listener, and uphold the dignity and worth of each of my clients.
