As a therapist, my main objective is to provide a supportive, comforting, and safe environment for my patients so they can achieve their personal treatment goals. I work to empower my clients to not only see their potential but to reach it as well. Together with my clients, we determine their treatment goals. Using different treatment modalities, we work on achieving those goals and improving their mood and overall quality of life. I strongly believe that therapy is not a journey taken alone, but a journey taken together.
I have experience working with many different populations including children, adolescents, and adults who struggle with trauma, depression, anxiety, developmental disabilities, mood disorders, and more. I have experience treating patients in a variety of settings including inpatient hospitalization, residential treatment facilities, in-home therapy, and outpatient settings. I truly love what I do, and feel lucky that I get to wake up each day and help others.

It might sound cliche, but helping others is truly my passion. From a young age, I knew that I wanted to be in a field where I could help others in different capacities. Life is certainly not easy and it is empowering to help others navigate difficulties in life. Becoming a mental health professional has been the most rewarding job I have had.
I enjoy being outdoors, spending time with friends and family, crafting, baking, and going on adventures with my dog and husband.
NAMI - National Alliance on Mental Health. NAMI helps people struggling with different mental health issues in so many different capacities by empowering, educating, and supporting its members.
I recharge by relaxing at home, watching a show on Netflix, cuddling with my dog, or taking a walk down to the waterfront and looking at the NYC skyline.
