My Philosophy of Care

I work collaboratively with my clients to create a warm, open, and trusting space. My approach to therapy uses a mix of two evidence based therapeutic approaches: Psychodynamic therapy and Cognitive behavioral therapy. This means that we will work together to challenge negative thinking patterns, as well as explore where these thinking patterns may have developed and the impact that has had on your relationships and overall quality of life. In this work you will gain insight and create effective coping skills. I also work to create a holistic approach to traditional talk therapy by utilizing the mind-body connection through various trainings in yoga and meditation. My areas of expertise include; eating disorders, challenging relationships to food and body, infertility, pregnancy and the postpartum period, as well as anxiety, depression, and trauma. I am LGBTQ+ allies and multicultural in my approach. All of my work comes from the a Health at Every Size lens, meaning that all bodies have worth and deserve respect and health does not mean that a body is a certain size. In the work we will look at the system put in place that have sent messaging around how our bodies "should" look and fight against this idea on both a personal and societal level. This work focuses on understanding where these ideas come from and gaining appreciation for all bodies, and having the way a body looks become the least important thing about you.

About Me & My Practice

From the age of 12 years old I knew I wanted to be a therapist. My desire to support others through challenges and life transitions led me to complete my master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling at Hunter College. During my time at Hunter College, I interned at The Mount Sinai Hospital in the psychiatry department. My training through Mount Sinai led me to a position at the New York State Psychiatric Institute, where I began my career. I have since completed additional training in CBT, DBT, Perinatal Mood and Anxiety disorders, and Eating Disorders. My passion for eating disorders and Health at Every Size came from my own experience healing from an eating disorder. Learning about Health at Every Size was a pivotal part of the process for me and has become something important to my practice for the past 4 years. While facing my own transitions, I found yoga; and decided to complete a 200-hour vinyasa teacher training from Laughing Lotus Yoga Studios, to delve deeper into the practice. I have found that the combination of yoga and psychotherapy work beautifully together to promote overall wellness and am grateful to share this gift with others. I have also trained as a prenatal yoga teacher and postpartum doula, increasing my awareness of the pre and postpartum periods. When not working, I can be found in a yoga class, enjoying the outdoors or spending time enjoying a meal with friends and family. I am so grateful to live in NYC and get to appreciate all it's culture.

Accessibility Considerations

The seating in my office is a couch that is able to accommodate all body sizes. I also am in an elevator building and there are no stairs needed to get into the building or the office. One of the bathroom stalls is unfortunately every small and thus would not accommodate different bodies or needs but that other stall is large and wheelchair accessible. I also give all clients the option of virtual work in case coming in person is a barrier or would feel stressful due to unknowns about the space.
