I work with creative people using creative techniques to help you feel better.

What you'll likely experience working with me: 

Adeptness at creating a safe environment and building trust with people who are apprehensive about the therapeutic process. Patience and empathy; also, I don’t shy away from offering feedback and respectful challenges. I work experientially, so I'm often asking about your experience in the present moment. Most of my clients get homework, assignments that we create  collaboratively to test out new techniques, which can help progress go faster and change be more enduring.

My training background:

Postgraduate trainings include Mindfulness for Clinicians, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction and Somatic Intervention. I hold a Master’s Degree in Social Work from Hunter College with a clinical focus; during my time there I studied the ways that trauma manifests in the body and how changing our body’s positioning can help shift our emotional state.

 

 

My experience:

I started my career working with unemployed adults, providing counseling and referrals. From there, I transitioned to working with older adolescents and adults involved in the criminal justice system, managing a supportive internship program, helping people prepare for interviews and providing one-on-one and group therapy. As a side project, I taught yoga and meditation at Riker’s Island to sentenced inmates.

I opened my private practice in 2015.
