About Me

I've been a Gestalt therapist in private practice in NYC since 2014, and have recently relocated to LA. As Gestalt encompasses so many techniques, theories, and "experiments", including a good deal of somatic body and mindfulness awareness work, EMDR was a na=tural next step for me. I work with each individual client to co-create a treatment plan that is best suited for them. I truly love the creativity and richness this work provides both me and clients.

Education & Experience

I am a licensed psychotherapist with Masters Degrees in both Social Work and Early Adolescent/Museum Education from NYU and Bank Street College, respectively, and am a graduate of the 4 year clinical fellowship program at Gestalt Associates for Psychotherapy in NYC.
