Born and raised in NYC, I help patients achieve a goal of satisfaction and happiness in their everyday lives. As a board-certified social worker with two Master's Degrees, I have the education and experience necessary to treat individuals suffering from psychological stress and impairments. I honed my assessment and intervention skills through years of working with patients in medical crisis, and have studied under some of the most prominent and successful psychologists and psychotherapists in NYC.

My style is relational and empathic, but at the same time challenging. It is important to me that my patients achieve the best therapeutic results. I employ different modalities of treatment rooted in psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral foundations—I help you understand what goals will most satisfy you, why those goals will satisfy you, and lastly how to achieve those goals. If this feels like the right fit for you personally, as a couple, or as a group, then please call, text, or email for a free consultation.

I look forward to hearing from you.
