I am a NY/NJ based therapist. I specialize in grief and loss, coping with serious/ chronic illness, life transitions, and caregiver distress/burnout with children, adolescents, and adults. I aim to provide a safe and supportive environment where you can explore all of your unique and complex feelings, experiences, and goals as you process challenges and transitions in your life. I believe that oftentimes individuals overlook their own strengths and I am here to help you see those strengths which are unique to you and to build on them. It is so important to be able to identify your own goals and values and once we have done that, we can begin to look at how the decisions and paths you are choosing are aligning with the goals and aspirations you have for yourself. Then, we can create strategies that allow you to address the root causes of what you are identifying as challenges and work toward building meaningful social connections.
Each person is unique and deserves a care plan designed for them. For some people, a therapist is a sounding board and place to process through life experiences with someone who is non-biased. Maybe it’s an encouragement person, accountability, or assistance in assessing reality. While my approach is eclectic and strengths-based, it is informed by Acceptance and Commitment therapy, Cognitive Behavioral therapy, narrative therapy, motivational interviewing, and a mindfulness/ mind-body connection approach. I am a certified yoga teacher and am working toward a Yoga Therapy certification. I am comfortable bringing in elements of mind body connection, breathwork and meditation if that is something of interest to you.
As a licensed clinical social worker and trained yoga professional who has worked in both hospital and private practice settings, I believe I have the tools to walk beside you on this journey. Together we will build your resiliency and empower you to experience your most authentic self. Please feel free to contact me to set up a consultation. I look forward to hearing from you and embarking on this journey together! I am currently offering telehealth services for NY, NJ, and IN.
