I am told that I have a unique balance as a therapist of being soft, warm and compassionate and also confident, genuine and strong.
I am a dynamic psychotherapist who works through an attachment lens with a strong focus on building a powerful, intimate, and safe connection with my clients. I am trained in multiple modalities including psychodynamic, cbt, tf-cbt, ERP, and IFS, and I customize treatment for what works best for the individual client.
I am blessed to be able to see the greatness, yes greatness, of the human struggle every single day, and consider my work to be sacred.
I work with parents who are looking for help to calm the challenging child storm and the impact it has on parents.
I also work with adolescents and adults struggling in their relationships, mood, trauma, anxiety and OCD.
When thinking about yourself as a parent do you feel
And is your child’s behavior challenging?
Perhaps you are wondering if your child has an underlying issue such as:
? Or maybe your child is just plain old entitled, and has no care in the world for authority?
Child behavior, underlying issues, and parenting can take a toll emotionally. But there’s no need to travel the emotional journey alone. You deserve support and clarity!
I help you identify the underlying issues and help both with behavior management and emotional healing.
Relationships can be challenging especially if you have experienced relational or complex trauma. Obtaining help can be especially difficult because it requires developing a relationship with a therapist which might be terrifying due to a history of traumatic relationships . I am keenly aware of that, and I use utmost sensitivity to foster a safe and secure attachment with my clients which is an essential foundation for healing.
I am also an experienced mood, anxiety, and OCD therapist.
My office locations are in Brooklyn, and Queens, NY.
