I believe that everyone can benefit from therapy! Whether you are returning to therapy, new to the process, or considering if it is right for you, I am committed to creating a space where you feel safe, seen, and deeply understood. People often feel stuck in their conditioned ways of thinking and behaving and helpless in their ability to create new pathways forward. I work with my clients to reflect on how past experiences have shaped the present moment through a less judgmental and more compassionate lens to foster insight and lead to positive growth. I am passionate about the power my clients have to become their own agent of change.
My therapeutic style has been described as warm, collaborative, interactive, and goal oriented. I take the time to understand your needs, strengths and challenges, and what you need to feel comfortable, supported and understood. I draw on concepts from evidence-based approaches including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT.) Utilizing these frameworks, we will work together to “challenge” old ways of thinking and/or behaviors that are impacting your present goals and connection with others. I have experience working with anxiety disorders, depression, trauma, grief and adjusting to life changes.
I received my Bachelor’s in Psychology from Pennsylvania State University and my Master’s in Mental Health Counseling from Hunter College.
When I’m not in the office, I love to read, practice yoga, snowboard and explore the city with my dog, Charlie!
