Psychotherapist - PhD, LCSW
That first step you take when you are looking for a therapist can be very hard to make. You have also decided to take that step for a number of reasons. It is important that whomever you decide to work with to guide you on your path toward greater personal strength and wellness is the right fit.
As someone who has learned and taught many different modalities of care, I am able to be flexible in my approach to best tailor to your needs. At the core of all the work we do together is your experience of transformation in your life. We will work together to develop goals for treatment that address what you really want from your life. You will also learn how to apply the different tools we use together in the different domains of your life.
I am a Columbia-trained Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Trainer. I have over 20 years of experience working with individuals who are experiencing distress related to, having lived through traumatic events, are going through major life changes or transitions, and have difficulties managing life because of anxiety, depression, or relationship challenges. I also have experience with College Mental Health, supporting students with major life transitions, particularly in the context of COVID.
In addition to individual therapy, I also provide personal and professional coaching.
I have held all levels of clinical practice and leadership. She is currently the Co-founder, Chief Operating Officer, and Main Trainer of a Nationally recognized training institute for clinicians. I have also been a local and national speaker more than 20 times on topics related to working with justice-involved individuals, trauma, and the intersection between mental illness, substance use, and the justice-system.
I have also been an adjunct faculty member at Columbia University, Adelphi University, and previously at NYU and Hunter College schools of Social Work.
