My approach to therapy values the authentic relationship between therapist and client as an essential ingredient to a safe and healing environment. I bring equal parts compassion, current knowledge of relevant research and theory, and curiosity to our work. I am collaborative, goal-oriented, and always willing to meet you where you are. At all times I want our work to feel meaningful to you.
I have worked with adults, adolescents, and children across a wide range of treatment settings, including the inpatient unit of New York Presbyterian Hospital-Payne Whitney Westchester, where I provided individual, group, and family therapy.
I hold a Master of Social Work from New York University, a Bachelor of Arts from Smith College, and a certification in Family-Based Treatment from the Institute for Child and Adolescent Eating Disorders. I have also completed additional training in CBT-E through the Centre for Research on Eating Disorders at Oxford.
Prior to my career as a therapist, I worked professionally in the performing arts, both on and off stage. I deeply appreciate when my current vocation allows me to bridge my past and present; working with individuals facing the challenges any life or career transition may bring is both challenging and greatly rewarding. I value maintaining a balanced practice and enjoy working with individuals and families from all walks of life. I am passionate about destigmatizing mental illness, the body positive movement, and eating disorder prevention. A native New Yorker, I live in Manhattan with my husband, two young sons, two beloved dogs, and could not live without the ocean or Vanilla Häagen-dazs ice cream.
