My studies in therapy and mindfulness began at New York University where I studied Social Work, Child and Adolescent Mental Health Studies, and Africana Studies. I further honed my clinical skills at Columbia University where I obtained my Masters in Social Work.
My therapeutic approach is based in teaching mindfulness skills and behavioral strategies to support you in your social, emotional, and relational growth. I integrate in-between session work and coaching so that we can achieve your goals quickly and empower you to create the life that you want.
I work best with those who are ready to dive in, get to work, and collaborate so that they can be their best selves and move forward in their lives. As your therapist, I am part of your team, bearing witness to your growth and success and available to support you in your journey.

Our therapy sessions can be an excellent tool to find solutions to problems that you're encountering, whether you are struggling with relationships, addiction, employment, parenting, grief, accepting and understanding difficult life circumstance, academics, trauma, self-esteem, stress, anxiety, or stress.
For over a decade I have worked in New York City counseling centers and schools providing holistic and effective therapy interventions to clients ranging from age three to eighty years old. Mindfulness and the arts are integrated into our sessions depending on your needs and interests.
I have pursued additional trainings at Ackerman Family Institute and the NYU Child Study Center. Outside of the office you'll find me surfing, listening to live music, exploring the world, and participating in meditation retreats in Chile, Nepal, New York City and beyond!
Together we will collaborate to better understand your history, and connect those experiences to current behavioral and thought patterns so that you are able to evolve into your best self.
