My Approach to Helping
Have you wondered if your child or adolescent would benefit from therapy? I offer a complimentary consultation to discuss any questions you may have. You can talk to me about anything; nothing you say will surprise me. I can help your child work through difficulties and become their own therapist by learning how to deal with challenges. I work well with parents, children, and adolescents struggling with anxiety, depression, ADHD, self- esteem, social and body image issues. I am easy to talk to, compassionate, and real. Clients often see a reduction in symptoms and improvement early on in therapy.
I received my graduate degree from NYU and am a PHD candidate at City University of New York. I am a licensed clinical social worker with over a decade of experience. I worked in a variety of settings including NYU Medical Center and Schools providing therapy and social skills groups. In addition to working with children and parents at Zackson Psychology Group, I continue to practice at NYU Langone Medical Center and continue to supervise clinicians in training. Working within the school system, I created innovative programming, created social skills groups, fostered relationships between families and school and facilitated treatment programs for students. I have extensive training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Child-Parent Therapy, Trauma-Focused CBT and Mindfulness based therapies.
I use a bio-psychosocial approach in my practice. I consider the biological, psychological and social factors that influence my clients. My work is informed by evidence based treatments and emotional focused therapy. My mission is to provide the highest quality of care and positive outcome for each child and their family. My clients often experience reduction of symptoms and improved quality of life early on in treatment.
I provide evidence-based therapy for children, adolescents, college age and parenting support. I also provides school consultative services. I collaborate with schools and multi-disciplinary teams to identify and implement effective strategies to facilitate treatment for students.
