Details

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker based out of New York City. I earned a BA in Psychology and Criminal Justice from the University of Michigan and a Masters of Social Work from New York University and hold a specialization in Trauma Studies from the Institute of Contemporary Psychotherapy.
My clinical style has been described as warm, humorous, and challenging; I believe the power of therapy evolves from establishing a safe space where client and clinician can form a sincere and genuine connection as a means to begin self-exploration. I also believe that, growing up in today’s society, it is difficult for people to develop a healthy level of self-esteem and self-worth due to various factors that impact the way people experience the world. Every client presents with unique life circumstances, experiences, and personalities, and I focus on tailoring my approach to their individual needs. My therapeutic approach reflects the importance of establishing a nonjudgmental space where authentic collaboration between client and therapist occurs; this promotes exploration of who each client is at their core without judgement or shame.
I believe that behavior is learned and is often a function of survival. Through this assumption, people can connect with their innate resiliency and explore their most authentic form of self as a means to discover what they are seeking from therapy. I believe in existing in the “here and now” and research has shown that “trauma is stored in our body and emotions are the vehicles the body relies on to find balance after a trauma.” It is my job as a therapist to establish a positive therapeutic environment marked by a safe and nonjudgmental space where we can begin to explore internalized emotional and relational experiences that have caused ongoing pain and suffering. This in-depth processing provides insight into internalized messages and experiences impacting the client’s narrative of the world, while also demonstrating a healing relational experience for each client to internalize.
I believe in promoting social justice by exploring trauma, oppression, and diversity and their impact on life’s journey. My style emphasizes establishing a positive therapeutic environment, which is both safe and nonjudgmental, where we can explore internalized emotional and relational experiences that have caused ongoing pain and suffering.
