We all have times in our lives that feel particularly overwhelming. In these situations, it’s natural to have strong reactions and emotions that are difficult to manage. In order to feel well, balanced and happy, we have to actually practice caring for ourselves! I can help you develop this practice and start feeling better. I provide a safe space and an outside perspective, and I will support you in becoming more aware of your patterns and coping skills. My style is collaborative and accessible, and in our work you'll find encouragement and clear communication.
As a licensed psychotherapist in both New York and Pennsylvania, I have provided therapy since 2010, and have been working in social work since 2005. I am currently located in Larchmont, New York and work with individuals age eighteen and above.
I believe that we are much more complex than a collection of symptoms, and my approach to our work keeps you in mind, as a whole person with a unique set of experiences that have made you who you are. We will draw from these experiences and the strengths you already possess to help you evolve. Your sessions will be uniquely suited to you and what makes sense in your life and circumstances.
My areas of expertise:
difficult life transitions
parenting stress and the impact that parenting has on personal identity and relationships
the challenges of pregnancy and/or new parenthood
the experience of depression
I specialize in helping people process traumatic experiences, and am committed to helping survivors of interpersonal violence, childhood abuse, rape, or assault to heal and reconnect to a sense of hope. I’ve received extensive training in working with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, and utilize evidence-based and insight-oriented models of treatment.
Whether you could benefit from short-term focused support or more in-depth investigation of deep-rooted patterns, I will help you find solutions that best meet your needs. You will come away from therapy with specific skills to be able to move through life feeling more centered and compassionate toward yourself.
