“There is a life force within your soul, seek that life. There is a gem in the mountain of your body, seek that mine. O traveller, if you are in search of that, don’t look outside, look inside yourself and seek that.” -Rumi

There is a vast collective and universal consciousness which connects us all. It is in this consciousness that we as human beings are our true and authentic selves. Our innate goodness comes from this connection. However, when one’s authentic self is blocked (through various traumas, stressors, life experiences, etc.), mental health issues can form and grow into depression, addiction, anxiety and more. This then leads to destructive relationship patterns within one’s life.

I am dedicated to providing meaningful, holistic and culturally competent care with those suffering from mental health challenges through an exploration toward personal growth and defining historical causes of psychological problems. I don’t focus on your specific symptoms (such as anxiety) but rather utilize a holistic approach to cultivating wellness in the entire personality. Our therapeutic relationship is a journey that is unique and individualized to the specific individual being treated and strives to have you dig deeper into the sometimes darker elements of your mind to find your true self rather than who you present to the world.

As part of this journey, I will guide you to a personal sense of inner wisdom and healing. I do not direct, but rather empower you as the expert of your own life to find the answers within to solve life’s obstacles and challenges.

I completed my graduate studies at Long Island University, where I earned a M.A. in Clinical Psychology and at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, where I earned a M.A. in Forensic Mental Health Counseling. I received a B.A. in Neuroscience as part of my undergraduate studies at Hamilton College. I am currently licensed as a Mental Health Counselor in the state of New York.

Let me help you on your journey to betterment in a safe space of empathy, relatability and unconditional positive regard, if you are ready…. “
