About Me

I have been working in the mental health field since 2007 and have been licensed as a Mental Health Counselor since 2014.   I have worked in a variety of settings over the years and am currently in private practice.  I am certified in EMDR and am now a Consultant in Training. I am starting groups for trainees starting in Feb 2024 on Friday afternoons as a CIT. I work mainly with adults dealing with depression, anxiety and addictions as well as couples and families.

Education & Experience

I received my Master's in Mental Health Counseling in 2009. I have worked in a variety of settings including a crisis hotline, private practice, substance abuse treatment and mentor to homeless teenage girls.  I have a background with at-risk male youth and young fathers in East Harlem.  I have also done volunteer work with a Native American tribe providing counseling and resources to the community.
