I view treatment as a collaborative effort between patient and therapist. This working relationship is essential to the healing process. I take an eclectic approach to treatment and try to fit the treatment to the needs of the patient. I draw from modalities such as psychodynamic, interpersonal, and cognitive behavioral in addressing the problems at hand as well as their underlying causes. My areas of specialty include anxiety, depression, addictions, eating disorders, life transitions, and relationship difficulties. I find it extremely rewarding to assist clients in recognizing and freeing up their potential.
I have many years of experience working with both individuals and couples. I have a non judgmental approach that allows patients to feel comfortable sharing and exploring often uncomfortable feelings impacting the quality of life they are ultimately capable of.
The decision to reach out and enter treatment is never easy. I strive to create and maintain a judgment free space for you. Together we will foster empowerment and self confidence while exploring the changes that will help you work towards the fulfilling life you desire.
I received my bachelors degree in psychology from Brooklyn College and went on to complete my masters degree in rehabilitation counseling from Hunter College. After working in the field of addiction for several years, I returned to school at the University of Buffalo for an Advanced Certification in Mental Health Counseling. I received my New York State License in Mental Health Counseling and thereafter pursued advanced postgraduate training in Adult Psychodynamic Psychotherapy from the Institute of Psychoanalytic Education affiliated with the NYU School of Medicine. In further pursuing my education, I received an Advanced Certificate in the treatment of eating disorders from the William Alanson White Institute.
