About Me

I am a licensed Psychotherapist in NY, a leadership coach, and the owner of RW Psychotherapy. I am passionate about working with people who identify as BIPOC and treating anxiety, depression, family and relationship issues, and trauma. I use my professional and clinical training, including cognitive behavioral therapy, psychodynamic processing, exposure and response prevention (ERP), and EMDR training to treat general anxiety, OCD, depression, trauma, life and career transitions, prenatal and postnatal parenthood mental health, burnout, and compassion fatigue.

Education & Experience

I graduated with a Bachelor of Social Work from Seton Hall University and obtained my Master's degree in Social Work at Fordham University. I have spent the last two decades working with people of all ages, backgrounds, and life experiences, providing psychotherapy and services that help to alleviate emotional and relational distress.
