I have always had a passion to help others and I strive to normalize mental health care. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Neuroscience with a cognitive/clinical concentration and a minor in Italian Language Studies from Trinity College. I am currently completing my Master’s Degree in Counseling for Mental Health and Wellness at New York University. After working as a teacher’s assistant at St. Joseph’s School in Bronxville, NY, I have developed a great deal of patience and a deeper passion for guiding and supporting others. My experience as an intern at a suicide prevention non-profit organization has taught me crucial problem-solving skills.
I strive to build trusting and collaborative therapeutic relationships where my clients can feel validated and comfortable. I foster a safe and nonjudgmental therapeutic space. While focusing on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques, I prioritize the uniqueness of my clients and I understand the importance of integrating different tools and techniques that are tailored to my clients’ needs. My approach is multiculturally informed, understanding the importance of my client’s multiple identities. I strive for my clients to develop self-confidence and I am determined to provide my clients with the support that they need. I am particularly interested in helping individuals who struggle with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), anxiety, and depression.
When not in the office, I enjoy long walks in central park with my dog Luca!
