In therapy, it is my goal to create a safe relationship that relies on trust, respect, and patience; to compose a pathway that allows for us to insightfully explore your inner thoughts and feelings to bring transformative changes and meaning to your present life. I work dynamically and collaboratively to explore your inner thoughts and feelings to bring positive changes and meaning to your present life. In addition, I utilize specific ways to discover your inner resources/skills to cope with daily stressors, relationship problems, trauma, anxiety, depression, and other concerns.
As a therapist, it is my goal to help detect the many positive strengths and qualities that already exist within you, that are waiting to be discovered and transformed into the present life.

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in New York and I earned my Master’s from George Washington University. I am a trained EMDR therapist (EMDRIA approved) and I have specialized training in Attachment-based protocol with resource tapping. In addition, I am trained in Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP), which emphasizes the importance of a strong/safe therapeutic relationship to “undo-aloneness” and process emotions to completion through a secure relationship with the therapist (myself).
