“Mental strength is not the ability to stay out of the darkness. It’s the ability to sit present in the darkness knowing that the light will shine again.”

My goal is to support each of my clients in a caring, sensitive and non-judgmental environment. I provide a safe space where clients feel they can truly process and heal. I use specific modalities that help each client reach their own goals.

I have had a unique journey as a therapist. I have spent time volunteering in a refugee home in South Africa, teaching at a school in Tanzania and working with children and young adults in Israel. I believe that my experiences have allowed me to become a better person, as well as a better therapist.

I received my Masters in Social Work from Fordham University in New York City. I am currently a member of the National Association of Social Workers, and a licensed clinical professional. I have also completed trainings in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, as well as with the Center for Self-Leadership in Internal Family Systems (IFS).

When working with clients who have other treatment team professionals, I feel collaboration is extremely important. As a professional, my goal is to make sure that you are receiving the best care. You should expect this goal from your psychiatrist and/or nutritionist as well.

Choosing to go to therapy is a big decision. Now that you have decided to invest in yourself, you want to make sure that you choose the right therapist.

I believe that therapy only works if three things are in place:

  1. The client is willing to go to therapy and wants to make certain changes in their life. The client does not have to be 100% sold on the idea of therapy, but at least a small part of them must be willing to try it.
  2. The client develops a positive and trusting relationship with their therapist. If the client does not feel comfortable with their therapist, it will be extremely difficult to open up in sessions.
  3. The therapist feels confident in their skills to help the client.


Frequently Asked Questions

Why do you believe people get better in therapy with you?

I bring 100% of my best self to every session. All therapists are human, but it is important that therapists completely focus on their client during the sessions. I also believe in moving at the client’s own pace. I am never in a rush to get a client to talk about something that they aren’t ready to talk about. I can help people heal because I give them the time and space they need to truly process what they have been through.
