Life is difficult, and it’s important to take care of yourself. Being here means you are considering taking a step towards empowering yourself, and making that decision is in itself a first step. While you may fear judgement from others, be the most critical judge of yourself, or feel stuck and unable to find a balance in your life, I’m here to say that it does not always have to be this way.
I am here to tell you that it is possible for you to access the strength within you and put yourself first! I will guide you through this process of self-exploration. I consider therapy to be the kindest gift you can offer yourself, and working together will enable you to feel more in control of your life in a collaborative and non-judgemental environment. Your goals are my goals.
Whether you are struggling with challenges of everyday life such as anxiety related to food, self-image, identity, or relationships I am here to help you work through them. Your pain is real, and we will help you take control of your life and become the best version of yourself. I believe in a person-centered approach in which we tackle your holistic wellbeing with honesty and at a pace that feels comfortable to you.
I received my Masters of Science in Social Work at Columbia University, where I was trained in Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Mindfulness, and Biofeedback. I completed my clinical training at the Barnard College Counseling Center in navigating trauma, relationships, sexuality, life changes, loss and grief, and concerns related to body image and eating. If you think you’re ready for a positive change in your life let’s take the next step together!
