One of my favorite things to do is to sit and have meaningful conversations with another individual. If we both walk away from the experience feeling that we have grown from it, then even better.
As a psychotherapist I strongly believe in every individual’s ability and right to be at ease with themselves and to become their best, and I am passionate about assisting you in the process. My own life’s journey has prompted me to explore various paths and philosophies, with regard to mind, body and spirit, the sum of which informs my approach to life and work.
I know that unresolved issues from the past can get in the way of moving forward and I am here to assist you in making sense of them by recognizing how they impact your life today.
Together, we will create the future of your choosing. When you work with me, I am in your corner helping you:
- sort things out
- develop your inner strength and resilience
- and honing your confidence to try out new behaviors in order to form more self-affirming behaviors/habits.
I remain on a path of awareness, personal growth and development, as I strive to be my best. I possess the natural ability to connect with the healthy, vital part of each individual, even when that person cannot see it for themselves. I am respectful, easy to talk with, and bring appropriate humor to my work, rounding out the total experience.
In addition to being a Psychotherapist and a Somatic Experience Practitioner (SEP), I am also an Artist. My creative nature inspires me to bring about positive solutions by any means possible. I consider creativity an important part of self-expression, wellness and recovery. My ever-evolving path reminds me that nothing is permanent, we are all connected, and that all things are possible.
I have been practicing psychotherapy since receiving my Master of Social Work degree from Hunter College School of Social Work, and becoming a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (L.C.S.W.), both in early 1994. I began my career as a helping professional in 1988, while working in New York City Shelters for homeless women. I am a member of the National Association of Social Workers (N.A.S.W.) and the United States Association for Body Psychotherapy (U.S.B.P.).
