My dream has always been to have a positive impact on as many lives as possible. The most obvious way for me to achieve this was to become a therapist. I believe that everyone deserves having an individual in their life that is there to offer support and guidance without judgement and shame. To be that person, I create a safe and trustworthy environment to explore your emotions, thoughts and behaviors. I love having the ability to help others gain more insight about themselves and the situations they are facing, while exploring how their past experiences impact their current lives. Some particular areas of interest for me are helping women build self confidence, exploring early family dynamics and their impact on present day issues, enhancing romantic relationship dynamics, and addressing trauma. I look forward to working with you!
Therapy is a journey that both you and I embark on together to identify and achieve goals that you have for yourself. My familiarity with various cultures contributes to my ability to interact and engage well with others, and bring the necessary empathy and compassion needed in the therapeutic process. Some of the interventions I utilize are CBT, Client Centered Therapy, Motivational interviewing techniques, Schema Therapy, Gottman, EMDR, DBT, among others depending on the need of the individual, couple, and/or family dynamic. In addition, I can also implement a coaching approach to assist individuals in growing self-awareness and building new coping skills to manage difficult situations. This ultimately positively impacts problem solving skills and helps unlock individuals’ highest potential.
I am an active and engaged therapist that draws from different therapeutic styles and techniques depending on what works for you! I value creating a space where you feel comfortable to be vulnerable and explore what you want to work on. With over the decade of working in the mental health field I have worked successfully with diverse populations, building strong connections through compassion and goal oriented work.
I completed my Master in Psychology at Mercy College. I then decided to continue on my educational path and attended State University at Buffalo to complete my Masters in Mental Health Counseling. I have worked in the field of Mental Health for nearly a decade now, providing a wide range of services to individuals and families in need. During this time, I have had the opportunity to successfully work with individuals, families, and couples to support growth, improve communication, address traumatic experiences, develop boundary setting skills, gain empowerment, and explore relationship dynamics.
