I am experienced clinical social worker who is dedicated to helping adolescents and adults cope with a wide range of mental health conditions such as anxiety, depression, anger, trauma and complicated grief

Becoming a therapist is my second career. Initially, I worked in Computer Programming
however, I did not find it fulfilling. I was always interested in psychology and human behaviors, and this interest inspired me to change my profession. It took me some time and soul searching to realize that my true calling is to help people to heal, assist with self- growth and improve the quality of their lives. I made the decision to become a social worker and never looked back. I acquired a social work degree from Fordham University and embarked on my 15 years career as a therapist working in various roles at the hospital clinic. I had the privilege to work with patients from all over the world, from different backgrounds and age groups. My experience taught me that compassion, caring and therapeutic alliance is the most important in the helping process and those core values inform my practice. I believe in human capacity for positive change and overcoming adversity. One should never lose hope. I use a gentle and creative approach to guide my clients on their journey to healing and growth. I believe that one approach can not fit all and draw from various therapeutic approaches to accommodate my clients' personal needs. Currently, I am very excited to open my own private practice providing a high quality of care using telehealth platforms. I do my best to make my clients to feel comfortable and safe to explore and share their inner struggles, aspirations and identify their therapeutic goals. We collaborate and come up with a treatment plan together based on my clients' needs and preferences. I believe that a client is expert in his/her/their own life, and I am just a "navigator"
