I am a psychotherapist with over 20 years of experience, with a license in creative arts therapy and certifications in psychodynamic psychotherapy, family therapy and drama therapy. Many of my clients are seeking help and support around past and current relationships, life transitions, creative blocks and traumatic experiences. They come to therapy looking not only for relief, but seeking a deeper understanding of who they are and their place in the world. I believe in the possibility of living a more connected and fulfilling life, and everyone can benefit from support. In my practice, I focus on helping my clients reconnect with their sense of aliveness through a warm, playful and intellectually curious approach.
At the core, my approach is relational, exploratory, collaborative and dynamic. I draw upon various psychotherapeutic approaches: psychodynamic, trauma-focused, mindfulness, play therapy, improvisation and somatic modalities to holistically meet the needs of my clients. In my practice I see individuals, couples and families seeking short or long term psychotherapy.
I hold a graduate degree from New York University, have certificates in psychoanalytic psychotherapy, family and couples therapy, drama therapy, and advanced training in gestalt and somatic therapies. I am currently training in EMDR and offering this modality under supervision. I have a particular expertise with students, designers and artists, having worked for close to 10 years at the School of Visual Arts counseling center, and currently as a contracted clinician with the Cooper Union. Other areas of interest and expertise include depression, anxiety, parenting, included blended family and step-parenting, bereavement and LGBTQI affirmative psychotherapy.
