Let's talk

I have a holistic approach to treatment and I am passionate about increasing awareness of the mind-body connection and empowering clients to make choices that serve their emotional, physical, and spiritual needs. I strive to help others show up authentically in each facet of their lives. I believe in the healing power of compassionate, feedback-informed care. As a client-centered, integrative therapist, my approach draws largely from relational and humanistic therapies, and I also incorporate mindfulness-based practices and principles of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). I aim to help clients achieve a higher level of self-understanding and continue to cultivate their strengths, while fostering self-efficacy and a sense of agency. I have experience working across various levels of care and treatment modalities, including dual diagnosis inpatient work at Mount Sinai Beth Israel, outpatient counseling at Brooklyn College Personal Counseling Center and The New School’s Counseling Center, inpatient/outpatient assessment at BronxCare Hospital System, and outpatient individual and family therapy at Mount Sinai Morningside’s Adult Outpatient Clinic and Psychiatric Recovery Center.
