“When we deny the story, it defines us. When we own the story, we can write a brave new ending."  - Brené Brown

One of the most courageous things we can do is to begin to understand our own
story. What often precedes healing, however, is profound confusion and
discomfort which deters us from delving deeper within. The process of growth is
often accompanied by fear of the unknown and thus, can appear a daunting task. But you are not alone. My goal is to walk alongside you as you come to know
yourself and navigate the path to a happier, healthier life. More importantly, what are your goals? What makes you feel safe? Therapy strengthens our insight by
compassionately confronting ourselves with questions we have never dared to ask ourselves before.

About Me

Applying empowerment and self- determination, I engage and motivate my clients to tap into their own resilience and inner-strength. I incorporate evidence-based practice techniques from modalities of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction and Psychodynamic Psychotherapy in my practice in order to address your individual needs.


I received my Master’s in Social Work (MSW) from Silberman School of Social
Work at Hunter College with a field of practice specialization in Health/Mental
Health and a concentration in Clinical Practice with Individuals, Families and
Groups. I have also completed my certification in Mindfulness Based Stress
Reduction (MBSR) and firmly believe that we are always learning in life. I am
committed to pursuing additional post-graduate training/certification in the
future.


If you are looking to conquer the obstacles that stand in the way of the fulfilling
and meaningful life that you deserve, I encourage you to seek support outside of
yourself. Together, we can embark on the journey to serenity, self-discovery and
personal growth that awaits you.
