My Approach

Real Solutions with a Gentle Touch

Welcome! I'm glad you are here. If you are feeling stuck, you have come to the right place.  I have a highly individualized and empathic approach using Evidence Based therapy.  Everyone’s healing process is different. I will nonjudgmentally meet you where you are at, to help you recognize your resilience and find balance in your life.

Maybe you feel stuck in a spiral of overwhelming thoughts and emotions. Or maybe your insecurities keep you from living the life you want to live. You may feel like you are always questioning yourself, ruminating about what you've done right or wrong. Maybe you have trouble making decisions and feel on edge all the time. I will help you gain insight into thought patterns and teach you concrete skills to move towards the life you want to live.

My Background

I went to Long Island University for my Bachelor’s degree and Fordham University for my Master’s degree in Clinical Social Work.
