Trying to manage stress on your own without the proper tools is hard. Working together, we will create both short and long term plans for tackling whatever is getting in the way of you living your life to its full potential.

I have been providing counseling services and directing mental health programs in Brooklyn, NY for over a decade, most of which have been with adults living with mental health and addiction concerns. I have helped numerous clients cope with anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship issues, co-dependency, life transitions, self-confidence, LGBTQ+ identity and empowerment, work and school-related distress, families/friends of addicted persons, and more.

I believe that each of my clients are an expert on their unique life experience and deserve a warm unconditional space of acceptance to process their thoughts and feelings. I tailor my work with each person to match the most effective treatment with their personality type and personal preference. depending on an individual’s treatment goal, I am happy to provide more or less of a directive role in order to organize our time together, develop insights and progress towards desired results.

I am trained in several evidence-based therapeutic modalities such as:

  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing - EMDR

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy - CBT

  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy - DBT

  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy - ACT

  • Psychodynamic Therapy

  • Mindfulness-Based Therapy

  • Person-Centered Therapy
