come as you are.


Come as you are. 

Psychotherapy is a safe and private place to explore the issues preventing you from living a more productive, meaningful, happier life. I'm aware that it takes an incredible amount of courage to walk into a therapy room and share things that require great vulnerability - Relationships. Trauma. Anxiety. Depression. Guilt/Shame. Life Transitions. Identity. Marriage and Family Issues. Life is complex, and hard times. I am direct and honest, while honoring your feelings and values. Whatever you're facing, I look forward to exploring these with you, to feel better and find a clearer sense of self.

My style is compassionate and collaborative, ensuring that you feel heard and cared for. I've found also that sensitively inserted humor is often infinitely helpful. Through empathetic, active listening I encourage you to explore the present moment, the past which informs it, and work toward making desired changes in your life. 

I offer a free consultation to address your questions and to schedule an intake session. contact


Who AM I?


For over 19 years my career has included psychotherapy with individuals and families throughout the social spectrum. I graduated from the Hunter School of Social Work MSW program in 2010 and am licensed in the State of New York as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I have had the opportunity to work with a socioeconomically and culturally diverse range of populations including a wide range of self identities. My career has included those looking for clarity in their lives through those suffering tremendously with trauma, mental illness and substance abuse. In addition to a career based in counseling, mediation, family reunification, conflict resolution, and concrete social services, I have grown my clinic practice as a psychotherapist working with children, adults, couples and families.  

I feel incredibly honored to have been touched by the rich life experiences of so many, and am forever impressed with their resilience.
