My Approach to Helping

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of New York. I earned my Master of Social Work degree at The University of Albany and have been practicing for the past seven-plus years. Before being a social worker, I was an elementary school teacher. While I enjoyed the teaching profession very much, my desire to help others more directly led me to return to school to begin a new career and chapter in my life. Since starting my practice, I have had success working with adults, families, and couples in outpatient settings to address issues related to depression, anxiety, grief, anger, family dynamics, trauma, and transitions.

My warm, friendly and empathetic approach fosters an environment where clients feel accepted and safe, clearing the way for developing a therapeutic relationship that is key to success in therapy. I see therapy as a team approach between the client and the therapist, with the client leading the way, as each client is the real expert in their life.

I use a Humanistic approach to therapy, which is client-centered, with unconditional positive regard, and the Gestalt approach, which focuses on the here and now, and an Existential approach that helps clients embrace their free will and self-determination in the search for meaning in life.
