Are you overwhelmed by the challenges in your life? I'm passionate about helping you address difficulties and develop solutions that are right for you. Anxiety, depression and problematic relationships can make you feel stuck and interfere with reaching your potential. Although we cannot always remove obstacles, we can develop resiliency and coping skills that help us navigate towards fulfillment. A strong element of my clinical practice is the concept of progress, not perfection, and honing personal strengths to achieve personal goals.


In my clinical work, I create a safe therapeutic environment where thoughts and feeling are processed. Through cognitive therapy and mindfulness training, you will learn to strategically respond, rather than react, to stressors. I will work simultaneously to help you identify and develop adaptive coping mechanisms, and set reasonable boundaries in relationships. Through your work together, you will gain tools and real life solutions to create a satisfying personal and professional life. Using an eclectic therapeutic style which incorporates Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, I will work with you to discover what’s keeping you from enjoying life. You CAN feel better and you CAN live the life you want.


I've been a practicing psychotherapy in New York for over 9 years. I have Masters in Clinical Social Work from Fordham University as well as a MFA from the The New School University. In addition, I have a significant background in the performing arts, which informs her clients currently in creative fields or those that are exploring career transitions.
