I believe that everyone deserves the chance to get to know themselves better. Do you struggle with communication in your romantic, sexual, work or family relationships? Are you curious about that hair-trigger emotional response you’ve always had, but never understood? Are you grappling with feelings of grief, anger, anxiety, sadness, or are experiencing a major life transition? As your therapist, I plan to help you approach your emotions with increased awareness and control. Our sessions will always be open, consist of exploratory conversations, and will be a safe space to be curious about your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. I consider absolutely every topic to be appropriate and worthy of discussion. You set the pace; I’ll keep up.

In my work with couples and individuals, I seek to learn about how your past has led you to define things in the present. I take a relational psychodynamic approach to therapy, which means we will explore your history together. We will get to know the many intersecting elements that make you who you are, with a shared goal of increased self-awareness and improved communication in your present day-to-day life.

It’s not easy to seek therapy. If you’ve been feeling anxious, sad, scared or overwhelmed, the fact that you’re here and reading this is already significant. You deserve safe, compassionate support as you process what you’re going through. I look forward to hearing from you whenever you’re ready to begin.

A little bit about me: Born and raised in New York City, I graduated with honors from Fordham University with a Master’s of Science in Education in Mental Health Counseling. Prior to my psychotherapy training I worked in the music industry and as a community organizer, diverse experiences which led me to create a research initiative examining the often-blurry intersection between career and identity.
