I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and a National Certified Counselor that earned my B.A. degree in psychology and M.S degree In Mental Health Counseling from Queens College. I received extensive amount of training during my graduate studies and completed my Internship at Northshore LIJ Zucker Hillside Hospital and College Point Wellness Center, a Private Practice.

I believe in order to achieve success in therapy, it first starts with the therapeutic relationship. This relationship is a collaborative relationship that takes effort from both the client and therapist. It relies on being honest, non-judgmental, empathetic, and developing a safe, encouraging and trusting environment for all my clients. I invite you to call or e-mail.
