Headway

After many years working in film, television, and multimedia production, I went back to school to start towards this second career as a psychotherapist.


In my mid-thirties, stressed from conflict between work, which demanded long days of total immersion, and obligation to my young family, I sought psychotherapy and began a mindfulness meditation practice. Through this work, I found insights and developed skills which not only helped me in better managing my emotions, but also happened to kick-off the career change.


I earned my Bachelor's in Psychology and Religion at Hunter/the CUNY BA program, and then went on for a Master's in Social Work at NYU.


My NYU training included an internship at the Manhattan Psychiatric Center where I worked with clients afflicted with severe and persistent mental illness. An internship at the Albert Ellis Institute followed. There I trained in Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) while providing psychotherapy to individuals, couples, and groups. As a post-grad, I completed a fellowship with the Neighborhood Coalition for Shelter working with homeless MICA (Mentally Ill Chemical Abusing) clients at the Coalition's Bronx Transitions program.
