About Me

With an extensive background spanning over two decades, I earned my Master of Social Work degree from Columbia University. As an EMDR therapist, I have undergone specialized training in Ego States and psychodynamic theories. Employing a diverse range of therapeutic methods, my aim is to guide and support individuals in the realization of their goals and aspirations. My therapeutic approach centers on providing individuals with the tools to gain profound insights and understanding of their experiences. Through the exploration and reinterpretation of these experiences, we work towards diminishing emotional and physical responses to adverse situations. I am committed to fostering a dynamic therapeutic alliance where the patient and therapist engage in a collaborative journey, commencing from the patient's current position and progressing organically through the process of self-discovery. In creating a secure and nurturing space, I intend to facilitate an environment where individuals can utilize my support to uncover and empower themselves on the journey of self-realization.
