My Approach to Helping

I am a Licensed Clinic Social Worker, Certified First Responder Counselor, Texas-based provider, and a New York City native with many years of experience working in various settings, including university clinics, community mental health, hospitals, private practice, and telehealth platforms.

I have training in anxiety disorders, depression, and traumas. I enjoy helping people manage high stress or going through difficult life transitions. I use a strength-based approach to therapy because I find it very rewarding to help clients identify and recognize how they are resilient and adopt healthy strategies to improve their lives.

I am looking forward to working with you! My motto is, Give me a piece of your mind, and I'll give you peace of mind.""

**** Please Note****
I will not be a good fit for you if you have a narcissistic personality disorder, borderline personality disorder, histrionic personality disorder, or any other personality disorder. Those disorders are best managed with dialectic behavioral therapy (DBT), and I do not specialize in that modality.

Additionally, if you are actively suicidal or under the age of 20, I would not be a good fit for you either since I have minimal training in providing therapy to those populations.
