Licensed Mental Health Counselor (NY)
During our sessions together I will hold your personal experiences and understanding in high regard, because I believe you already have what it takes to heal. My role is to help you uncover that strength and knowledge. We will explore experiences that have created challenges in your life. Together we can work to form healthier thought patterns, find the source of your struggles, and learn to listen to your own inner wisdom.
it wasn’t until my own healing journey that I realized I wanted to be a therapist. During this period of profound change, introspection was inescapable. I spent a lot of time exploring my own thoughts and feelings, which gave space for me to heal and grow. As a therapist I know what it is like to be faced with necessary change that initially seems impossible. I also know that the opportunity to be fully seen, heard, and witnessed without judgement is one of the most healing experiences we can have.
When I am not working you can find me reading, spending time in nature, creating art, engaging in a spiritual practice, discovering ways to support environmental sustainability, or learning something new.
I have a bachelor of arts degree in neuroscience and religion from Arcadia University, followed by a master of arts in clinical mental health counseling from Marywood University. My work has primarily been with individuals and groups, addressing relationship concerns, women's issues, addiction, religious and spiritual exploration, and major life transitions.
As we move through life, we are not always given the resources we need to grow and evolve. We may feel overwhelmed with this task, wondering if we’re on the right path. Even still, we are presented with the unavoidable pruning of ourselves. As a therapist I will hold a space that is safe for you to be vulnerable, without judgement, as you move through the seasons of your life.
My therapeutic approach is rooted in a holistic and humanistic perspective, considering the many aspects of your life and how they are expressed. My therapy style is authentic and intuitive. I make use of various lenses to help assist you on your journey, often integrating Attachment theory, Mindfulness and meditation practices, Somatic practices, Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) into my work when it is needed.
