Let me tell you a little bit more about me. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over twenty years of experience working with children, adolescents, and adults. I have always loved helping others. My passion for working with people in their 20s and 30s stems from years of working with children and adolescents in schools. I’ve helped students find their own path into adulthood and see my current work as a continuation of offering that guidance and support. Previous clients describe me as very kind, empathetic, non-judgmental, and caring. Counseling is in my blood, it's all I have ever done and I feel as passionate about it today as I did when I started.
Therapy gave me the tools to make sense of what I wanted to do with my life and find strength amidst the uncertainty. And now I help others. My style is integrative and holistic, which means I take you, your personality, and your needs into consideration when deciding which approach to take. One size does not fit all. The counseling relationship is a collaboration of ideas. I want to know what you think is a priority in your life.
In addition to traditional "talk therapy," we will explore other potential tools. For example, exercise, diet, and meditation can have a tremendously positive impact on your life, especially if you are struggling with anxiety/depression. These tools have helped me personally in my own life! Don’t worry–it will be one step at a time.
I have a Bachelor’s degree in Social Work from Florida International University. I also hold two Master’s degrees: one in Social Work from New York University and one in Educational Leadership from Lehman College. When I’m not working, you can find me doing yoga, baking, reading, or playing with dogs. I look forward to meeting you and working together.
