I believe that where we came from inevitably affects who we are, but does not need to define or constrain us in perpetuity. I want to understand where you came from and where you want to go. My job is to listen and help you get there. I want to understand how you see the world, and help you understand what patterns may be holding you back. I am warm, humorous, thoughtful and patient. Our time together is yours and and nothing is out of bounds. I hope to create a safe space where we can creatively look at your life and try to understand your concerns, doubts, fears and triumphs.
I completed my undergraduate studies at Vassar College and earned my Masters in Social Work at Fordham. I underwent post graduate training at the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy, completing the four year program in Psychoanalysis and Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy in 2018. I aim to listen to you with compassion, empathy, curiosity and without judgment.
I integrate Buddhist psychological ideas and mindfulness practices into my work when appropriate, as I believe finding ways to pause within our hectic lives and be deliberate, calming the body and mind, allows greater awareness. I look forward to speaking with you.
