Deciding to come to therapy can be a difficult decision; one that takes courage and often comes with some anxiety and ambiguity about what the process will entail. I consider empathy, sympathy, and honesty are the key elements to a nurturing and successful therapeutic relationship. I’ve spent the last 4 years training and working with clients at institutions such as New York Presbyterian, New York University and Cornell Medical College. *** Hablo Espanol*****
My specialties and areas of interest include anxiety, depression, mood disorders, relationships, PTSD and behavioral changes. I use an integrated dynamic approach to therapy, informed by mindfulness, relaxation techniques, motivational interviewing, and cognitive therapies.
It is important for you to feel comfortable with me; my main goal is to help you understand why you are feeling the way you are feeling. I am a believer in the ability to change. I want to offer you a safe space to build your strengths through a warm, interactive and practical individual therapy.
