Headway

Brooke

I find therapy to be a valuable space for reflection, connection, and growth and embrace the opportunity to construct such a space with my clients. I bring a warm, empathetic presence and a desire to understand my clients deeply as we work together towards the change they desire in their lives.

I hold a PhD in clinical psychology from the City University of New York Graduate Center. In addition to work in hospitals and community mental health centers, I have five years of experience working in college counseling centers, including (among others) those at New York University, Fordham University, and Pace. In my work with individuals, couples, and groups, I draw upon psychodynamic, systemic, and skills-based approaches to increase clients’ resilience and sense of fulfillment in multiple aspects of their lives.


I enjoy working with clients presenting with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship challenges, grief, sexual assault/abuse, substance use concerns, traumatic/difficult past experiences, and concerns related to navigating identities of all types. Offering an environment that is affirming to LGBTQ+ clients is particularly important to me.


In addition to my training in psychology, I hold a PhD in political science from Columbia University. My background in political science reflects my interest in the impact of political and social structures on the lives of my clients. I am also well-acquainted with the challenges of academic life and eager to assist students navigating related concerns.
