About Me

I provide individual therapy to children, adolescents and adults. My practice uses a psychodynamic base, to which I add mindfulness, play therapy and EMDR to further enhance growth and healing. With children I primarily use play therapy, through which children are able to express their internal experience non-verbally, using their innate language of play. Although EMDR was initially developed to treat trauma, it is an excellent and multifaceted tool for helping to break the cycle of long established patterns – especially those that continue to hurt us.

Education & Experience

I earned a Master of Social Work from New York University, am a Registered Play Therapist and am certified in EMDR. I have been practicing psychotherapy for over 15 years. I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Dance and Earth & Environmental Science from Wesleyan University. I provide free EMDR based therapy to post-9/11 veterans through the Headstrong Project.
