About Me

I am a licensed clinical social worker practicing in NY and CT. I have 8 years of clinical experience working in various mental health settings including outpatient mental health clinics, inpatient psychiatric facilities and community mental health centers. I have been in a private practice setting for the last 4 years and opened up my own practice last year. In addition to specializing in Trauma, I also specialize in OCD and Anxiety disorders. I completed my EMDR training in 2021 and have been able to use it with a wide variety of clients dealing with many different kinds of trama. I provide an energetic, compassionate and engaged approach to my work. I aim to create a space to help you explore thought patterns or behaviors that are impacting you with the goal of achieving a more fulfilling life.

Education & Experience

I received my Masters in Social Work from New York University in 2015. After that, I spent several years working in an outpatient mental health clinic and then worked for three years at Bellevue Hospital in their inpatient psychiatric unit. In addition to completing my EMDR training, I also have training in CBT (specific focus on ERP for OCD) as well as some training in IFS (Internal Family Systems).
