About Me

As a Certified Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist and a Certified EMDR therapist I approach my work empathetically building an alliance of understanding acknowledging each patient as unique with the importance of their situation. Following that, my work includes processing, resourcing and supporting my patients to have a voice expressing their emotions and feelings allowing them to express their anxiety, fear, sadness, and dread. Although an individual may need help resolving some inner conflicts, I can help them clear the path to developing a new sense of hope and establishing a new journey towards healing. I approach my work with respect towards the importance of the unconscious of the individual and making it conscious for the innate and autonomous capacities of the individual. My aim with the treatment of EMDR and psychotherapy is to achieve the most comprehensive effects, maintaining client stability within their structure. EMDR is a specific psycho-therapeutic approach for treating trauma. Traumatic events differ in degree of severity and can take on many different forms. Subjective severity is determined by the meaning an adult or child attaches to it. Traumatic events in ones life can be expressed as a biological stress response. There is a point for each of us at which anxiety and fear cross the imaginary line into trauma. Besides utilizing EMDR, EMDR/flash and psychoanalytic psychotherapy in my practice, I work with an eclectic view from several theoretical models. I am experienced and comfortable working from different modalities adapting my approach to each individual patient. Treatment results include an individual's freer self-expression, increased creativity expression, showing self-esteem regulation, capacity for joy and pleasure, and the feelings of accomplishment in finding one's own way. I am well known for my caring, support and understanding of my patients' circumstances.

Education & Experience

I am a Certified Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist practicing in the field of mental health for the past 19 years. And a Certified Licensed Social Worker, graduate of Fordham University Graduate School of Social Work, MSW and a Post-Masters Graduate of The Training Institute for Mental Health, Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy. I was trained in EMDR, 2006/2007 and completed level I and II. I received my International Certification with EMDRIA in 2007. Over the years, I attended several advanced EMDR workshops in Canada, New York and Connecticut for ‘The Art of EMDR'. Following that, I went on to further advance my studies in EMDR within multiple workshops throughout the years in my practice including, 2017 at the beginning study of ‘The Flash Technique’ EMDR/flash developed by Dr. Philip Manfield; a recently developed evidence-based therapeutic intervention for reducing traumatic disturbance without feeling distress. As an adjunct to EMDR preparation phase, Flash Technique is a minimally intrusive option. Further studies I attended include, 'The Integrative Trauma Program' at The National Institute for the Psychotherapies 2015-2016. As stated, I continue to attend classes yearly furthering my education. Recently I have been awarded a Badge from EMDRIA for my Certification throughout the years from 2007 through 2023 in EMDR. I use EMDR regularly with my psychoanalytic patients and also provide customized EMDR/flash. I feel privileged to say that I have been trained with the absolute very best throughout the years!
