Licensed Mental Health Counselor -
I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and licensed addictions counselor located in New York City who enjoys working with adults who struggle to cope with the enormous stressors that they face in their daily lives. These stressors include relationship conflicts, pressure to achieve at work, and constant fear of not being enough. Many of my clients struggle with self-criticism, which looks like believing that they aren’t worth love, comfort, or success. Sometimes, these harmful negative thoughts can turn into mental health conditions like anxiety or depression. I help clients unwind these thought patterns and explore the reasons behind their beliefs.
In my work with clients, I utilize several therapy modalities, however the first several sessions are spent in getting to know my clients, their backgrounds, support networks, and their current struggles. Through these conversations, we can build a strong rapport in the form of trust. From there, I teach my clients elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and psychodynamic therapy. Clients practice effective coping skills to use when they begin to engage with negative thoughts or feelings. They grow their feelings of confidence and self-efficacy, with myself celebrating your progress along the way. The environment that I create in sessions is a relaxed and down-to-earth environment that is free of judgment.
I earned my Master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling from Fordham University and am also a credentialed alcohol and substance abuse counselor and a certified trauma professional. I have extensive experience working in community mental health in New York City and am passionate about providing accessible mental health services to all, no matter their life situation.
