Great to meet you!

I am a graduate of Columbia University, and hold clinical licensure in the state of New York. I specialize in women's issues, with a focus on female friendship dynamics and female empowerment. Additionally, I hold a BFA in Drama from NYU and enjoy working with actors and other performing artists around the unique challenges of the field. I am an LGBTQ+ affirming, sex-positive, and body-positive clinician. I strive to join you where you’re at, providing a safe, non-judgmental space to be heard.

A bit about my approach to therapy

My approach is eclectic and collaborative, beginning with your goals and hopes for treatment, and incorporating creative methods to work together in this pursuit. I enjoy working with my clients in a relational, interactive manner in which we can both bring our authentic selves into the room and our dynamic. Our sessions will integrate elements of CBT, DBT, psychodynamic, and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction practices, and are tailored to best suit your unique needs.

What you can expect from our first session

I aim to facilitate a process with three distinct objectives: identifying and reframing negative thought patterns, developing a stronger awareness of self through connecting themes throughout the life course, and bolstering autonomy and ability in developing the skills necessary to accomplish goals and find wellbeing. We will work together to uncover insights and gain clarity, drawing upon your own unique strengths, capabilities, and sense of self.
