About me

I have experience in working with individual teens and adults with anxiety, depression, BPD, and PTSD. I have training and experience in trauma-informed care, and frequently attend trainings throughout my career.

Honoring my 4-year-old-self’s dream of being a “complaining doctor” has been a wonderfully humbling and fulfilling experience. While this field of work is in my nature and a life-long dream, my passion for this work has only grown through my personal life story and is strengthened every day as I witness my beautiful clients’ individual journeys.
I graduated with my MSW from NYU Silver School of Social Work and currently hold an LMSW. I believe in being a forever student as I learn something new every day (especially from my clients!). I am strong in the belief that you are the expert of your own life. I am lucky when I get to be a part of a person’s story and humbled by the sacred trust given to me.
I am a trauma-informed, psychodynamic therapist with a heavy focus on attachment styles and inner child work. Each person is unique, so while I have a focus on attachment and inner child work, I consider myself eclectic. When we only focus on the past, we can’t move forward, but when we only focus on the present, we don’t heal. I like to think of it as doing surgery without a bandage, or using a bandage without surgery. Neither would work, so we need to do both. We’ll dive into the past to gain insight and also gain tools to help you in the present, sprinkling in tools from behavioral models such as DBT and CBT.
Re-telling your story empowers you to create a new one. Your experience is important and deserves to be heard and validated. Learning your attachment style can be so helpful to uncover the patterns, struggles, and behaviors that you find yourself in relationally, and personally. These insights can give you the knowledge and thereby power to take control of your own life and make the changes you want.
I want to understand you and what you and/or your child wants to gain from therapy. You may not know the answer to that yet, and that’s okay. We’ll talk through it and discover what was pulling you towards wanting to explore more of yourself. The flavor and goal of my approach is to empower you to take your life back.
