Great to meet you!

My journey to becoming a psychotherapist came very naturally given my extensive history within the mental health field. I grew up in Brooklyn, New York, where mental health plagued the streets, but was mostly ignored. I am the youngest of six siblings, which has had a huge impact on my curiosity about how identities are shaped and how to navigate different spaces, perspectives and personalities. This curiosity led me to my path of mental health.

A bit about my approach to therapy

I began working with a diverse population of adolescents, adults and families, with a variety of stressors, to help them transform their lives and relationships through individual, group and family therapy. I utilize culturally informed treatment models in all services provided. As a therapist, I am collaborative, exploratory and realistic, which also means that I will challenge you to expand your perspective about yourself, emotions, thoughts, behaviors, relationships, family dynamics, etc.

What you can expect from our first session

My hope for our work together is that you complete therapy with a better understanding of self, emotions, behaviors and a unique toolbox to manage any stressors.
