As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I believe that effective therapy begins with a strong therapeutic relationship. My treatment is rooted in the belief that all clients deserve a supportive and non-judgmental therapist, who can assist them to heal during times of difficulty and equip themselves with positive and effective coping skills to face future challenges while expanding one’s window of tolerance. I work from a place of acceptance and patience and provide individual, couples, and family therapy by using a person-centered integrated approach tailored to each client’s needs and goals. I regularly confer with my clients to make sure they are achieving their desired outcomes and take pride in providing a collaborative and effective therapeutic alliance and understand that the client is the expert of their own experiences.
I specialize in working with adolescents and adults. I have experience in a variety of settings including Suffolk County courts, private schools, residential treatment facilities, and outpatient clinics. I have experience working with anxiety, legal involvement, mood disorders, family and relationship conflict, trauma, self-doubt and substance abuse.
I am here to support you and my hope is that with our collaboration, we can bridge the gap between where you are right now and where you want to be in the future. I invite you to send an email or call to make sure that engaging in this process together makes sense for you. I look forward to connecting with you.
