Change is rarely easy. Life comes with changes that sometimes can feel overwhelming to navigate. Acknowledgment is the first step, and seeking help comes next.
My approach is to meet you where you are, in a genuine and empathetic way. I provide a neutral, non-judgmental, yet challenging environment to explore and find positive coping strategies. I believe positive coping strategies empower us to live better lives and handle change effectively.
I take a cognitive behavioral and person-centered approach to helping clients change negative thinking patterns and behavior, improve emotional regulation and develop positive coping skills. I also support clients in recognizing and navigating unjust systems and structures.
I have worked with adults, adolescents and children, with individuals and groups. I’ve supported people of different cultural and ethnic backgrounds and from diverse communities. I am particularly interested in working with women of color, young adults and children. Among the concerns I have helped clients address are anxiety, depression, substance use, improving relationships, grief, stress, and adjusting to everyday life.
I hold a Master of Science in Education with a concentration in Mental Health Counseling from Hunter College, a Master of Science in Child Psychology from Southern New Hampshire University, and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Penn State University.
I will walk with you on this path of your life, and will help you to become who you are destined to be.
