As someone who has always had an interest in the way we connect and communicate with others, I discovered my passion for counseling. As a therapist, I aim to create a safe space for you to be vulnerable throughout your journey of self-exploration and acceptance. My therapeutic style is rooted in an integrative approach that allows me to collaborate with my clients and tailor a plan to fit their individual needs. My approach is primarily based in a psychodynamic focus exploring the impact of family upbringing and environmental influence. I incorporate cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to reframe negative thought processes, as well as use mindfulness techniques when working with my clients.
We will work together to develop new coping skills and approaches to achieve the changes you wish to see in your life. It is important for me that you feel listened to, validated, and empowered to make these changes during our time together and moving forward. Therapy is a journey that may be difficult and uncomfortable at times, but it is often in discomfort where we see the most change.
I earned my master’s in counseling for Mental Health and Wellness from New York University. I also hold a bachelor’s degree in both Psychology and Sociology with a minor in Special Education and Rehabilitation, Deaf Studies from the University of Arizona. I am a California native currently living in New York City, navigating all that it means to call this big city home.
