Throughout my time as a social worker, I have focused on understanding and treating the entirety of the individual, not just their symptoms. I have experience working with children, adolescents, and adults from diverse backgrounds in various settings including NYC public schools, the inpatient children’s psychiatric unit at Bellevue Hospital Center, and most recently at a community behavioral health clinic in the Bronx. I received my Master’s Degree from New York University Silver School of Social Work and attended Loyola University Maryland for my undergraduate degree in Psychology and Studio Art. I have a special interest in working with children, adolescents, and their families, and am currently a candidate in the William Alanson White Institute’s 3-year Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy Program.
I work with my clients to build a healthy and non-judgmental relationship in an environment where they feel heard, accepted, and cared for. This helps clients gain insight into their thoughts, actions and relational patterns. Our work fosters new choices and opportunities in their relationships, careers, and interests. I am a collaborative partner as clients understand, challenge and learn to bounce back after adversity. I help clients move through difficult or inhibiting barriers in their lives and rise above painful memories and situations. This process nurtures more empathy for the self and others, cultivates resiliency, and improves well-being.
