Ipseity, that is, the discovery of authentic selfhood and individuality, is the unique goal that illuminates each of my therapeutic relationships. My style is integrative, holistic and deeply collaborative. Moving within a Psychodynamic approach, I utilize Existential, Humanistic, Narrative, Cognitive, Behavioral and Mindfulness techniques to support my clients as they journey towards a life of personal empowerment. Specifically, my clients and I establish an environment of mutual trust, set obtainable goals, and gradually restructure old patterns by shifting awareness into more rewarding modes of being. By developing supportive practices that embrace personal authenticity, I help my clients to locate the sources of power that allow them to manifest the vibrant lives they deserve, while opening the doors to compassionate self-acceptance. Personally, I enjoy working with individuals, couples and families of all backgrounds, with a focus on helping individuals who identify as neurodiverse to thrive.
I am currently completing my master’s degree in Mental Health and Wellness Counseling through the Department of Applied Psychology at the Steinhardt School of New York University. I hold a double BA in Fine Arts and Art History from Northwestern University and a master’s degree in Arts Administration from New York University. Prior to entering the mental health field, I was a professional in the contemporary art world who worked closely with galleries and non-profit visual arts organizations. My main attraction to the arts was my respect for independent thinkers who are able to convey their ideas via visual media. To this day, I consider myself an advocate for a wide variety of personalities, communication styles and modalities of self-expression.
I look forward to working collaboratively with my clients to discover their authentic selves, to uncover their strengths and their challenges, and enable them to unlock their unique ipseity.
