As a doctoral student of clinical psychology at Adelphi University’s Derner School of Psychology, I am invigorated and committed to my therapeutic work. I lead with authenticity and consider therapy to be a mutual process of learning and growing; one built on safety, collaboration, and trust.
Born and raised in New York City, I graduated with a bachelor’s degree from Oberlin College. Following graduation, I returned to work in social services with clients with severe mental illness. There I humbly served people with different backgrounds and experiences than my own. Through the connections I’ve made with such a diverse group, I’ve learned to defer to the patients’ expertise in their own lives, allowing for a more honest bond.
I want to help others feel secure in their ability to handle the inevitable fluctuations of an ever-changing state of being. I am a huge proponent of incorporating the body into mental health treatment and believe that its role in our mental wellness cannot be ignored.
In addition to being a therapist, I am a creative of multiple forms who engages and is in constant conversation with several platforms including visual, digital, musical, and performance art. I am highly interested in the creative process and its potential for cultivating positive growth and healing.
