I believe in taking an individualized approach and working collaboratively with you to help you on your journey. I would like to guide you in finding your own inner strength, gain insight into your struggles, and help you to develop new skills and tools to create a fulfilling future.
I will be there to listen and understand exactly where you are, without judgment, and empower you to live life the way you’ve always wanted to live. You are courageous; together we will channel that courage and inner strength to transform your thought patterns, build resilience and improve your overall mental health and well-being.

I became a mental health therapist after falling in love with the psychology course I took in high school and learning about how we, as humans, function. Not to mention, I have always enjoyed helping others in any way that I can and being the "go to" friend!
I truly enjoy spending time with my family and friends, traveling to places I have never been, trying new foods, snowboarding and exploring the little gems NYC has to offer.
I believe exercising and eating healthy has the highest impact on my mental and emotional well-being. I also spend time meditating if I am feeling stressed or overwhelmed.
I recharge by spending time with myself or my husband. We enjoy watching movies, going for walks, and sometimes just sitting in the quiet reading. These times help me regain my focus and get ready for the days ahead.
I don't currently have any pets, but I grew up with dogs and LOVE them. My favorite pet story is when my parents brought home our last and oldest pup and when he was a wee little baby, he LOVED barking at and chasing the broom around in circles. It was the funniest thing!
