My Approach to Helping

I am not a blank-slate therapist. I will laugh with you, be angry with you, and hold space for you to feel your emotions.

You are in control of your own mental health journey. I push clients to challenge their thoughts and thought processes, empowering them to be in charge of their own stories. I am warm, relational, direct, curious, and use humor and metaphors with clients. I am passionate about helping people feel seen, illuminating their strengths, and supporting them to develop solutions to the challenges they face in their lives. I approach therapy collaboratively and tailor my approach to each individual.

I use a variety of therapeutic approaches, depending on the unique needs of each client. Each session may look different since we are all continually changing and adjusting to our surroundings.

More Info About My Practice

Born and raised in New York City, I believe in individuality and being an advocate for yourself. Experiencing a city with diverse individuals and so much to explore, standing up for yourself, while also discovering who you are in a city where you can be anybody, is vital. I am dedicated to providing antiracist and culturally affirming therapy, recognizing the many strengths to be found in positive cultural identity, as well as the impacts of oppression and marginalization on clients’ life experiences. I seek to embody the values of hospitality, humility, curiosity, and acceptance for every person. I am excited to continue providing therapy to new and longtime New Yorkers from all walks of life.
