I am a licensed clinical psychologist in New York state and work with adolescents and adults. I specialize in trauma, anxiety and depression, mood fluctuations, relationship issues, and existential crises ranging from lacking a sense of purpose to experiencing confusion about one’s identity.
I enjoy working with clients from diverse backgrounds including those with different abilities, BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, and individuals who are neurodivergent. In particular, I have extensive experience working with the Latinx community.
My approach is integrative and flexible, meaning that I tailor our work to meet your unique needs. I draw upon Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), relational Psychodynamic Therapy, and also integrate LGBTQIA+ affirming therapy and existential therapy.
I practice from a trauma-sensitive, compassion-based perspective that is affirming of all the identities you hold. Through our work together you will be able to:
- Make sense of your experiences and respond with compassion to difficult emotions and situations
- Learn techniques to feel your emotions safely in order to begin healing trauma and emotional wounds
- Express your thoughts, feelings, and take action to get your needs met
- Identify what is most important to you in order to create a life that feels meaningful
As a trauma-sensitive yoga teacher who has lived in India, I also integrate somatic therapy and mindfulness into my work. These approaches can be especially beneficial in reconnecting to emotions when talk-based therapeutic approaches may not have had the effects you desired.
If you would like to learn more about how you could benefit from therapy and see if we are a good fit, please schedule a free 30-minute phone consultation with me.
