You have taken the first step by putting you first and I am here to help. I am a NYS Licensed Mental Health Counselor ready to help you address your concerns including relationship issues, anxiety, depression, trauma, maternal mental health, eating disorders, behavioral issues, addiction, and stress management. I offer you a collaborative and supportive setting to promote your emotional wellness and help you achieve transformative change.


I completed a Master's degree in Mental Health Counseling at Hunter College and I hold a B.S in Social Work. I have extensive training, experience and successful outcomes utilizing evidence-based treatments including CBT, DBT, REBT and MCBT to address a variety of concerns and provide meaningful and transformative work with individuals, couples and families.
