I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, and I provide therapy to adults who live in New York City and throughout New York state. I have experience helping people overcome traumatic experiences that are creating anxiety, depression, and relationship issues in the present.
Whether diagnosed with PTSD or not, I support folks in healing from traumas including childhood physical and/or emotional neglect, death of a loved one, sexual abuse, assault, bullying, war and political violence, narcissistic relationships, life-changing medical diagnoses, systemic oppression, and more.
I am trained in Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART), which is a treatment that, similar to EMDR, helps change the way traumatic memories affect you. It can also address ongoing behaviors in your daily life that may not be connected to a specific past experience, such as social anxiety and low self-esteem.
I also offer Psychedelic Integration therapy , which involves supporting you before and/or after an experience with psychedelic medicine. Preparation and integration helps you make sense of new insights, and transfer that knowledge into your daily life – facilitating deeper awareness and more meaningful, long-lasting outcomes. You can learn more about psychedelic integration here.
My therapeutic approach is holistic and creative, which will allow us to honor you in all of your complexity – mind, body, and spirit. I integrate concepts from Person-Centered Therapy, Mindfulness-based therapies, Internal Family Systems (IFS), Existential Psychotherapy, and Psychodynamic therapies to create a healing space dedicated to your wonderful, unique self.
I aim to always provide therapy that is affirming of all identities and cultural backgrounds, and promotes your autonomy through a strength-based, harm reduction framework.
Although our work will be guided by your goals, I aim to help all clients:
- Find attunement with your physical body
- Expand your capacity to tolerate discomfort
- Enhance your toolbox of coping skills
- Shift from shame and self-criticism to curiosity and self-compassion
- Feel empowered through understanding the “why” behind your behaviors
You deserve to feel supported and seen in your wholeness. I look forward to learning about your journey, and the opportunity to walk alongside you as you create the next chapter of your story. You can take the next step by booking a complimentary 30-minute phone consultation with me.
