I am a Mental Health and Substance Abuse Counselor at Viva Wellness NYC located in Brooklyn Heights, NY. As a therapist I value self-exploration, collaboration, and finding one’s inner strength. My primary goal is to create a safe space that will allow individuals to feel accepted and heard, while simultaneously be challenged to develop healthy coping skills. My approach to therapy is inclusive, LGBTQAI+ positive, and culturally-affirming. We will work together via in-person and/or online counseling with the goal of encouraging self-awareness, learning to manage emotions/triggers, and feelings of frustration in oneself.
I have worked with individuals from various backgrounds with concerns ranging from various mental health issues, self-esteem issues, substance use, macro and micro aggressions, sexuality/gender identity issues to those coping through stress from life or work.
Lastly, I enjoy focusing on the unique needs and concerns of women/womxn and women/womxn of color who have experienced traumatic events by using trauma-informed therapy and strength-based approach.
