About Me

I am independently licensed in New York (LCSW) and MA (LICSW) with a MSW from Boston College. I have been practicing psychotherapy since 2017, and completed EMDR training in 2021. I am currently working at a group practice, focusing on the treatment of trauma using EMDR. My background is working in community mental health in a variety of settings: outpatient, in-home, and based in a primary and OB/GYN setting. I am passionate about working with trauma survivors from all walks of life using EMDR. My background in community mental health has given me experience and passion for working with individuals of diverse backgrounds who have historically been underserved, such as BIPOC individuals and individuals from the LGBTQ community. Due to my background working at a health center, I am also well versed in treating medical-based trauma and chronic illness. I have experience providing clinical supervision and training to graduate students entering the mental health field, as well as Master's level clinicians with their initial licenses.
