Description

I have over 10 years experience working in the mental health field. I have worked in a variety of settings including NYC homeless shelters, outpatient, private practice, addictions centers, and in school setting with children and adolescents with behavioral problems. I have had experience working with a broad range and severity of clinical issues. I have the most experience working with anxiety, depression , life transitions, bipolar; schizophrenia diagnosis and dual diagnosis, MICA patients, complex trauma/abuse, and children . I also have experience intellectual/developmental disabilities, mild autism, and immigration/acculturation issues.

I use a person-centered, holistic, cognitive behavioral techniques, multicultural, and integrative approach in treatment. This means I begin where you are and tailor the treatment approach to your needs while being sensitive to how your individual cultural identities and lifestyle choices impact your experience. I primarily use evidence based techniques including cognitive-behavioral therapy, mindfulness, motivational interviewing, and solution-focused counseling. However, I do incorporate psychoanalytic approaches to counseling as well.

I would describe my style as warm and supportive, and I am ready to help you tackle your struggle head-on. Collaboration is important - together we can work on establishing concrete goals and steps for you to help overcome your current problems. As a therapist, I work with you to help you identify your desires and empower you to make those positive changes in your life. I understand that making the decision to seek help can be difficult, so I use an approach that is compassionate, direct, and non-judgmental to help create an environment where you feel supported in your counseling journey. I believe in taking time and working on wellness slowly, holistically, and consistently. Just as physical health takes time and consistency, so does mental health. I look forward to helping you in any way I can!
