My Approach to Helping
Even the most resilient adults and children need support for the challenges life sends our way. If you or a loved one is struggling with anxiety, depression, a life transition or relationship conflict you are here taking the first steps to a better life. I am an experienced licensed professional counselor and an art therapist specializing in children, adolescents, adults and families. Each situation is unique and my approach is to partner with you as a nonjudgmental and collaborative support. I am described by clients as genuine and warm, while providing the opportunity for reflection and growth.
Prior to private practice, I supported a diversity of patients at Georgetown Hospital and NYPWeill Cornell Medical Center giving me a unique understanding of the specific challenges faced by medical patients and their caregivers. My specialties include trauma, anxiety, depression, medical illness, family therapy and parental coaching.
My approach combines art, play and sandtray therapies with counseling, which can allow for deeper insight and the expression of feelings when words fall short. As a clinician, I believe everyone has the ability to live a joyful, fulfilled and meaningful life.
