Clinical Social Worker, Trauma Therapist -
Hello! My calling is to help people who experienced abuse such as child sexual abuse, domestic violence, sexual assault, emotional and physical abuse. Nothing else makes me feel passionate than guiding survivors through their healing journey. If you’re looking for a compassionate, experienced, and skilled therapist, you’ve found her. I’m glad to provide TELEHEALTH counseling (online sessions) for which I’ve been trained. I work with people who live in New York state or are physically in NY during online sessions. I am a hopeful therapist. After 15 years of helping survivors, I have more hope and optimism than when I started when it comes to guiding survivors towards healing and gaining a sense of control. It’s a joy to be part of helping people make progress from feeling like victims to knowing their strengths as survivors and becoming empowered. I have the tools and techniques to help you with symptoms of trauma, including flashbacks, recurring thoughts, low self esteem, nightmares, and relationship issues. I have helped hundreds of people make sense of why their bodies and minds respond the way they do to situations, and to change these responses. I can help you understand what’s going on with your relationships and make changes that will help you. I have helped countless people to see their own value and impact on the world.I’ve witnessed how many abuse survivors give so much of themselves to others, and often have no time for themselves. If this is you, isn’t it time you took care of your needs, too? It’s hard to pour from an empty cup. You’ll find that as you give more care and attention to yourself, your relationships and the situations around you will start to change. If you’re willing to work on things that have been getting in the way of fully living your life, I’m here to partner with you. You deserve the support.Why online counseling? You’ll be comfortable in a private place of your choice. You’ll eliminate the need for commutes to and from sessions which are often tiring and get in the way of processing the things you’re learning about yourself. I use a secure platform that is compliant with HIPAA (Health Information Portability and Accountability Act) which means that what you say in sessions will remain in sessions. Privacy and confidentiality are important to both of us. I’m comfortable using online counseling and I’ve seen how it helps my clients.If the things above are changes you’d like to see in your life, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
